For all who've known Adam thru the years, I'm sorry for our loss. I've known Adam thru Woodward for a number of years, and my thoughts were always the same when I crossed paths with him, or worked with him over time, "that's an exceptional young man". Adam was exceptionally smart, very mechanically inclined, hard-working, honest, dedicated, personable, down to Earth, compassionate, wholesome, and sincere, .... all attributes that I've tried to instill in my sons thru the years. My heart is out to all who've worked to instill those values in Adam. It's very sad that his life was cut short in such a tragic, and sudden accident. Adam enjoyed working hard to make a positive impact on this World. I'm sorry for our loss, God be with us, and with Adam.Greg Thomas - Co-worker, and Friend.
