I have known you my entire life; from two little cousins at a Christmas party to attending McMaster together. You adopted Melissa as part of the family immediately, making her feel comfortable and welcome since the beginning. Every time I have a prosciutto sandwich, just know that I will be thinking of you. I will miss you dearly.

Local Food) at McMaster and throughout our city, and made a profound impression on many people in his short time here. He was always enthusiastic to support others and fearlessly led by example. Thank-you Adam, for your unforgettable influence as a friend, teacher and changemaker. Your magic will carry on. My condolences to your family and circle of friends.

To those that called McMaster home over the last couple years, you would agree with me in saying that Adam was a kindred spirit and could always brighten your day by talking your ear off about his passion for sustainability and local food.

A project he cared so much about and was proud to lead was the Mac Farmstand Local Food Discount Card- a city-wide, healthy, locally sourced eating discount program for university students. My good friend, Teddy Saull, started a fundraiser for Adam in hopes we can plant a tree at McMaster University in his memory. Hope you would consider donating!
