George Alexander MacAdam Obituary
STOW -- George Alexander MacAdam, 75, passed away suddenly at his home Thursday, November 15th 2012. Born March 18, 1937 in his family home in Stow, Ohio.

George graduated from Stow High School in 1955 where he excelled in academics, basketball, football, track and field and Glee club. He was one of the first athletes to letter in the Stow sports program and was selected All-Metro in 1955 for basketball. Following High School he attended the University of Akron where he received his degree in Civil Engineering in 1960. During that time he was commissioned and served as a captain in the U.S. Air Force. He spent his career as a professional engineer working for several local construction and engineering firms, working on major transportation projects in northern Ohio.

A lover of nature, he was an avid gardener, a skilled hunter, could identify plants of all kinds, recognized, and mimicked many North American bird calls, passing along many of these traits to his children and grandchildren whom he loved. He loved solving the NY Times crossword puzzle every day. He enjoyed studying genealogy and had traced his family tree back multiple generations, a gift that will be passed on to future generations. In the final years of his life he found a strong faith and peace with the Lord which resonated throughout his relationships with family and friends.

Preceded in death by his father, George A. MacAdam and mother, Marie Jeanne MacAdam; he is survived by his wife of 43 years, Lisa MacAdam (Lepp); brother, Gilbert MacAdam (Kathy); sisters, Janet Barnovsky (Robert) and Joyce Zimpfer (Thomas); children, Lloyd MacAdam (Carol) of New Phila, Ohio, Lisa Eberle (Todd) of Uhrichsville, Ohio, Lyle MacAdam (Stephanie) of Yreka, Calif., Erin Haren (Jeff) of Akron, Ohio, Amy Justice (James) of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Mike MacAdam (Becky) Of Philippi, W.Va., Steve MacAdam (LeAnne) of Stow, Ohio, 19 grandchildren; one great-grandson; and faithful Springer Spaniel Jackson.

Friends are invited to the Redmon Funeral Home for visitation Monday 4 to 8 p.m. Pastor John Kitchen will conduct service Tuesday, 10 a.m. at Stow Alliance Fellowship, 4460 Stow Road in Stow. Interment Northlawn Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the National Audubon Society or The Salvation Army.
