Adam also enjoyed playing the organ and going to church. On many occasions Adam would play his organ for family and friends. He enjoyed singing and it was not uncommon for him to greet family, friends, and acquaintances with a humorous song. He would often visit Paul and Madeline Sicko whom he was very fond of and the employees at The Garden Gate Florist, greeting them with one of his favorite songs. Adam loved to share jokes with those around him and found it a joy to make people laugh. His favorite way to greet people was to shout, "Happy New Year!"
