Cheerful and well-liked, Patrick R. Adle always drew a crowd when he celebrated life milestones such as graduating from high school or heading to Iraq. "The guy always had a smile on his face," said his cousin, Joshua Tackett. "You can''t put in words how great a person he was." The 21-year-old heavy equipment operator from Baltimore was killed June 29 by a roadside bomb in Baghdad. He was based in Folsom, Pa. Adle, who was a forklift operator in civilian life, came from a long line of military men and enlisted in the Marine Reserves some three years before his death. "I think he wanted the pride of being called a Marine," said Tackett, who is also a reservist. "It''s a feeling that can''t be taken away." Adle is survived by his father, Michael Adle, and his mother, Pamela Adle-Watts.
