January 18, 1928 – October 5, 2013
It is with sadness that the family of David Adam announce his passing on October 5, 2013 at the age of 85. David is survived by his daughter Jude Halvorson (Michael) and his son David Adam (Jane); four grandchildren, Brett and Lee Halvorson and Robert and Grant Adam. Other family members mourning his loss are his sister Moira Wells; his niece Heather Wilson; his nephews Ian Wells and George Adam as well as cousins in Scotland. David was predeceased by his parents, Dr. George and Mrs. Wilhelmina (Minnie) Adam, his brother Dr. Hector (Bill) Adam and his former wife and good friend, Loraine Adam.
David was born in Gourock, Scotland and immigrated to Canada in 1948 as a young, energetic mining engineer. His career took him and his family across North America, finally settling in Edmonton in 1974. David enjoyed his career and retired at the age of 60 as Director of Mining for Syncrude Canada. In later years, he enjoyed time at the Edmonton Golf and Country Club, vacationing and volunteering at the Cross Cancer Institute.
The family would like to thank the staff of 7 East of the Misrecordia Hospital for the wonderful care provided to David.
