I am at a loss for words. We shared a love for his New York skyline with the Statue of Liberty watching over America. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

I'm very sad to hear this news. I worked with Adam for a few years at the VA. He always had incredible stories and was very easy to talk to. He could find the good in most stressful situations. Condolences to family and frieds. i will miss him.

Adam was a happy, positive person, I remember those long talks and his passion for the life and history of the Samurai, my daughter Daniela remembers those chess games, my husband Martin enjoyed many dinners together and conversations about soccer… you will always be in our heart and God have you in his glory.

Sometimes you are blessed with the right person to cross your path at the right time...Adam and I worked in radio in SLC and we became friends, always laughing friends.  I was going through a divorce and he had just been down that lonely path.  We were never romantic but the best of friends and he called me Kitty Kat.  So many double black diamonds I would not have challenged on my own, so many impromptu parties. He always made sure I had something to do, and was not sitting at home alone.  That guy; that very special soul that brings you out of darkness with his gentle spirit.  A solid follower of the same God I follow.  So  many conversations, runs, trips, dinners, and even when I moved away we always kept a touch through facebook.  He was an amazing man, and I am sure he is in heaven having earned his wings through all the love and joy he spread while he walked here. ALways proud of his sons, and always willing to be there.  Love you brother, and can't wait to catch up someday in heaven.  You rocked it here and LIVED STRONG!. Mahalo for your friendship~God bless you Sylvia and family and peace in knowing he is resting in the arms of our Lord, and talking his head off!

Adam senior knew me as number 3 (the third boy in the family). I'm honored to have an uncle like Adam, always showing us how to have a good time. I remember many nights spent at his house, creating a fight club in his basement, and enjoying life together.

So sad to see senior pass so early, but he is still living within Bohdan and Adam.

I was so blessed to meet Uncle Adam this past summer. It was our first time meeting after my whole life and I'll never forget the conversation. Uncle and I were talking and no one else understood what we said. It was the smiles, the hugs, the aloha I felt from him. I know he was a good man and I know that he is home now.

Im so blessed to have spent even a minute with a good man. My sincerest condolensces and prayers to the Klawe Ohana. 

A Hui Hou Uncle Adam

I was stunned to learn of Adam's passing just now. I had no idea he was battling throat cancer, as he had never mentioned it when we re connected in Utah. I knew Adam initially from Honolulu when he was the bouncer/manager at The Pink Cadillac, the most popular night club from 1984-1989. He was 9 years older than me, but in was on the same trajectory....PolySci major at University of Hawaii

Fashion model for 2 years also in Europe...Out mutual friend John Vance was right. Adam was the man! So sorry for your loss! Aloha from Honolulu!

I loved reading Adam's obituary to see the whole of his life. What a full life that man had. I worked with him during his radio sales career in Salt Lake City. He was always such a happy guy and so willing to help. His passing is a great loss to so many who loved and enjoyed him. My condolences to his family and his fiancée. He was such a diverse and happy individual. RIP Adam. You deserve it.

No words can express all the sorrow, my dearest friend. My heart is so full of memories, your giant bear hugs, your screaming ' little sista' from across a parking lot. The deep conversations and chess...oh and chess.

Love beyond measure, truest hearts. Thank you.

I am heartbroken tonight on reading Adam's  obituary.

I met Adam in the 90's in Raleigh North Carolina. He was full of life and had great positive energy. We kept in touch over the years through letter ( !)  and then lost touch until Facebook came along . I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. Somehow, over the years, we made a cancer connection. 

I am very sad for his families and friends all over the world. He had a sparkle in his eye for life. You will be missed Adam. God bless you! Aloha
