I first met Bill Adams at a Commonwealth Club Board meeting where his wry sense of humor, love of life and positive attitude struck me as so refreshing for an accomplished lawyer. Soon we got to know each other better and eventually went on a Commonwealth Club trip from Moscow to St Petersburg ,Russia. This is where we really bonded and shared stories, vodka and good food. I learned about his excellent photo skills when I saw the results of his pictures that he took. The Club benefited from this as well with his many great shots of speakers and members over time. Bill really loved the Commonwealth Club and it showed. He was a friend to all he met and so easy to get on with. If he left one impression among many for me was his upbeat manner no matter what the circumstance. Always with a smile. This really was contagous and he could easily get a smile from the most dour person. I met his sons at a Commonwealth gala some time ago. He raised a good family. He often spoke about Julie who seemed to be the person who made things all work for him. He leaves behind a great legacy of a loving person who loved his family, his friends and his life. I am deeply sorry to lose him. Bill, I will miss you a lot. Thanks for adding a sparkle to my life. May you rest in peace but never lose your sense of humor.

Dear Julie, Dylan, Kevin, Rob, Greg and all of Bill's loving family,

My deepest sympathies on your great loss. Bill was truly one of a kind! The three things I will remember most about him is the supreme joy and pride he took in his family, the utterly cheerful and enthusiastic way in which he shared his opinion on any subject you could possibly name and his passion for his myriad of interests - food, wine, travel, photography, The Commonwealth Club and politics (although we disagreed on that particular subject!) Bill was a very charming, intelligent, generous and accomplished man and I, for one, was enriched for having known him. May God be with all of you at this difficult time.
