David Adame Obituary
DAVID ADAME, lifelong Houston resident, died on the 5th of August 2013. He was born on the 11th of April 1918, in Houston. Mr. Adame served his country honorably in the United States Army during World War II. He was a member of L.U.L.A.C. Council No. 60 for over 60 years serving in both local and national positions. He served as a volunteer with Felix Tijerina, in the formation of the "School of 400", which later became known as Head Start. He also served in the SER-Jobs for Progress program and was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. Mr. Adame and John J. Herrera were instrumental in inviting President and Mrs. Kennedy to attend a L.U.L.A.C. function on the 21st of November 1963, at the Rice Hotel. David was ordained a Deacon with The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston in 1975 and served at Annunciation Catholic Church and St. Joseph's Hospital for 28 years. David, although small stature, was a giant in honor and integrity, always smiling, and always counting himself very blessed. He loved his family and friends unconditionally. God gave us this very special person who was love personified. He brought joy and comfort to all that came into his life.
Mr. Adame is survived by his wife of 60 years, Deamantina; son, David and wife Marilynn; son, Anthony and wife Maria; daughter, Andrea Davidson and husband James; and daughter Nita Elsenbrock and husband Don; grandchildren, Brandon Adame, Jacqueline Terrel and husband Gabriel, Adriana, Michael, Alexander and Nicolas Adame, Al and Jessica Gonzales, Christine Griffin and husband Kyle, Alyssa and Randolph Davidson, George and Thomas Elsenbrock; two great-grandchildren, Morgan and Isaiah Terrel.
