It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Adam on September 29, 2015 in Salmon Arm, BC. Adam was born on the family farm on January 1, 1921 in Luseland, SK. In 1933, his family moved north to St. Walburg, SK and he spent time working on neighbouring farms.

He built a total of 7 houses in Port Alberni before moving to Beaverlodge in 1973 where he purchased some land and settled there until 2001 where he came south to Grindrod and finally, in 2014, he moved to Arbour Lodge in Salmon Arm. Adam was active in the Royal Canadian Legion as well as in St. Ann’s Church and the Knights of Columbus.
