What wonderful memories I have of Col and Mrs. Adie. I was blessed to have met them through my parents--Bill and Carol Carter--and they were always the nicest people you could imagine.

Hello Julia
My name is John Campbell and I am a descendant of Archibald Campbell, your grandma Jessie's eldest brother and the only one of her siblings to move to Canada. Your cousin in MA was kind enough to forward this notice to me. Please accept my condolences for your loss. I lost my father, Paul, in 2009 and still miss him a great deal. He and your father were first cousins and contemporaries. Dad was born in June, 1916 and he too served in WWII. The obit and photos you have assembled are a wonderful tribute to your father. I wish I had had the opportunity to meet him. Take care.

I was drawn to read Col. Adie's obituary by his photo. He sounds like a wonderful man. You don't know me, but I can't help but wonder if our families have crossed paths... specifically John Adie and my father, Thomas L. Boyle. He too spent time at Fort Belvoir and served in the Army Corp of Engineers during WWII, mostly on the Philippine Islands. Thank you for the chance to meet the great man in your family and reminisce about the great one in my own.

Colonel John Adie was one of the founders of the US Army Transportation Corps Aviation Association (TCAA). John was an Army aviation battalion commander, Commander of the Army Aviation Maintenance School at Fort Eustis, and the Commander, Army Aviation Research & Development Labratory at Fort Eustis. John was the first of three soldiers who have been honored with TCAA's Hall of Fame Award. John was TCAA's President Emeirtus who wore his TCAA hat until the day he died. The worldwide membership is in mourning today as we say goodbye to a warrior, a friend, and a mentor. God Bless You John Adie.
