Adam loved sports, and was a tireless athlete who loved to play basketball and tennis. He was a bundle of energy whose life was stopped in one short instant. His heart and soul lives on in the legacy of Project ADAM, which has reached schools across the country, and has been responsible for more than 140 lives saved.
A Memory From Patty Lemel-Clanton, Adam’s Mother
"Adam wrote in his 8th grade autobiography, 'I want to live a life I can be proud of.' It seemed at 14 years old Adam understood the meaning of life. He did live a life he could be proud of and through Project ADAM he continues to do so. The spirit of Adam lives on through Project ADAM, making a positive impact on the world, helping save the lives of countless others and helping schools become a safer place through cardiac emergency preparedness and awareness. 'I want to live a life I can be proud of' ... these words have been the inspiration for me to live the rest of my life by. I am forever grateful for the wonderful gift of having Adam as my son, in life and in his passing."
A Memory From Joe Lemel, Adam’s Father
"It`s simply impossible for me to too think of a single favorite memory. There are just so many wonderful memories that it’s the combination of all those memories and moments that make up my favorite memory. He was simply an amazing, wonderful person."
