To the Adams family:
Words cannot convey the sense of loss I feel. I have known Chappy since he was a senior at Benjamin, until he was my boss at Illustrated. Things will never be the same without him. I'll miss his smile, his understanding and his willingness to help. Everyone just loved him! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Few on the planet exhibit the kindness and compassion that was so strong an attribute of Chappy's nature. We became friends 30 yrs ago, and he has remained in my heart ever since as a shining example of unconditional love and acceptance. My deepest sympathies to the Adams family in this time of unthinkable loss.
January 18, 2013
Ever since High school, Chappy brought smiles to those around him. He always had a kind word or helping hand for those that needed a lift up. He will be missed but not forgotten.
My deepest condolences to Chappy's family and loved ones. Keeping you in my prayers.

The first time I met Chappy, he got down on his hands & knees & helped me putlighting at my desk with an extension cord.He didn't have to do that. He could have had a maintenance man do it. And I knew he was special from that day forward. He always made my heart smile and happy when he was in the room. GOD BLESSED us with his presence. He will be forever in our hearts.

January 13, 2013
As a fairly new agent with the Illustrated family I sadly didn't know Chappy very well. From day one I was SO impressed by his warm and inviting presence. He never had the "AIR" of the principal of such a large successful company. He never appeared to be more than "just one of the gang". His Illustrated family clearly was treated as just that "family". The grief in the corporate office has been almost unbearable. Chappy clearly touched everyone as much more than a "boss". My heart aches for his entire family including his Illustrated family. What an amazing legacy he leaves behind having touched so many lives. Its true, "only the good die young". God Bless the Adams family and the IPRE family.
January 13, 2013


Bud Adams & family.

January 13, 2013
The Adventurous Man of Soul we called Chappy will never be replaced or forgotten. The kindness, joy, and support of friendship he offered us all... is immeasurable.

January 13, 2013

January 13, 2013
Chappy did some work for me when he was in High School. I thought he was a bright, kind person who worked very well for us. We also went skiing with their family many years ago. Chappy was always very kind and enjoyable to be with. I sincerely cared for Chappy. I wish this had not happened. I am so sorry for the family, beyond words.
January 13, 2013
Dear Bud and Katrina,
I can't express in words the sadness I feel. Chappy was a wonderful human as were Mandy and Nina. Mandy was a special part of my life which was accompanied by Nina and Chappy. In the last several years I had the opporunity to catch up with Chappy at NPB masters swimming, publix or other random places and he always made me feel like a long lost friend. Chappy, Mandy and Nina will always hold a special place in my heart.
January 13, 2013
I remember Chappy and Nina playing on the floor in our boutique when they were children. God bless you Bud and Katrina. Your children are together in heaven.

I miss you my dear friend and your smile will always be remembered!

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Adams and Illustrated Families. Chappy represented our Industry well and we were blessed to have known and worked with him. May God give us all comfort and peace.
January 12, 2013
Such a tragic story ... the life of a vibrant, visionary leader, cut way too short ... I had the honor of getting to know Chappy when I owned a real estate company down the street from his, and although we were competitors, I always respected him. We saw each other again a couple of months ago at a Realtor convention, and I was quickly reminded that he was one of the "good guys." As many have said, he was optimistic for the future and his optimism was contagious. Chappy will undoubtedly be sadly missed by many. My deepest condolences go out to the entire Illustrated family and most particularly his father, Bud, and his daughter, Emma. May your fond memories of him bring you comfort at this terrible time. Rest in peace, Chappy ...

Dear Bud, Katrina & family,
I am so sad and my heart aches for all of the family. I have known Chappy since he was 14. He was like a son to me and called me his 2nd mother. We shared an office together more than once. I remember his first sales meeting at 11811 US 1 Office. I watched him from the beginning of his career as he became more successful.
What a loss for all of us and his IPRE family. He will be missed but never forgotten. My thoughts, love and prayers are with all of you.

My condolences to his immediate family- Diana, Emma, his Mother and Father and many many friends. I hope his journey to heaven was a wonderful as the life he lived. Chappy was such a strong, sweet and down to earth man. If you knew him for one day you knew him forever... he just had that type of energy. He treated everyone like family and was not pompas or pretentious. He LIVED life and all it had to offer... to the fullest and he pretty much lived life out loud. :) He had a full life and now he will rest eternally knowing he had it all and then some. May he rest in peace till I see him again.
I am at a loss for words for his young daughter but may she grow to understand, learn much from her father, his passing and the legacy he has left behind.

Enjoy the music from above Chap you will be missed... so much, so so much.

He is irreplaceable...

My heart breaks for Bud Adams and Chappy's family. It is hard to believe Chappy will not be there in 2013 for the Illustrated Properties family of Realtors, our associates and friends. His unique management style encouraged and allowed all of us to be the best of who we are and proud to represent IPRE. Gone far too soon - you are already missed so much. Your are in my prayers. RIP Chappy.

I was called today by a mutual friend of Chappy's who told me the news. This is truly a sad day. Chappy was so full of life and always had a smile on his face. I worked for Chappy as a Realtor for several years and enjoyed getting to know him and his father Bud. Its so sad to see Chappy die at such a young age. Please send my deepest sympathy and prayers to Bud, the family and the staff at Illustrated Properties. Chappy will be missed. I feel blessed to see him & Bud just a few months ago, right outside the IPRE office, we had a nice conversation I will not forget. Little did I know it would be the last time I would see Chappy. RIP My Friend.
