Adam Wilde Minton Obituary
Minton Adam Wilde Minton, 56, passed from this life on June 7, 2017 surrounded by family and friends, after a brief illness. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts to Dr. Paul and Sally (Wilde) Minton. In addition to his father, he is survived by his children, Aidan R. and Chloe G. Minton; his former wife, Dr. Maureen Stubbs (Gary Moser); brothers, Ethan Minton (Amy Minton) of Brunswick, Maine, Ben and Herbert Edgecomb (Marybeth Edgecomb) of Atlanta, Georgia, and Erik Minton of Madison, Wisconsin; as well as numerous in-laws, cousins, nieces, and nephews. He will also be missed by special friends, Ken Wightman, Sonya Thesing, Rob Willson, Tom Hall, and Diane Hoenig. Adam served five years active duty and 15 years in the U.S. Naval Reserve, attaining the rank of Commander. He attended Cornell University and graduated from the School of Hotel Management. Adam partnered in several businesses in Columbus, and actively invested in real estate. Adam made friends in the homeless community with his weekly delivery of home cooked spicy chicken. He also assembled and personally delivered care packages to the homeless, helping those he saw most in need. Adam knew from his Navy shipboard days the difference a care package could make. Adam served as a member of the St. Joseph Montessori School Board, where he oversaw many fundraising activities, and made lasting friendships. Adam could deliver criticism disarmingly and effectively with an impish grin. His love of language never let a misused who or whom, I or me go unnoticed. He once taught an airline captain how to properly slice a steak, never letting vacation trump decorum. His love of the water sometimes found him swimming laps before sunrise, his land-bound constraints never stopping him from diving into the nearest pool. Adam eschewed the solemnity of a conventional funeral, opting instead for a Celebration of Life. Family will receive friends 4-6 p.m. on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at SCHOEDINGER WORTHINGTON CHAPEL, 6699 North High Street, Worthington, Ohio, 43085. Celebration of Adam's life will be held on Sunday, June 11, 2017 at 1 p.m., with a service at 5757 Willowbend Drive in Westerville, Ohio. An additional service will be held in Merrimac, Massachusetts at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to, Columbus Relief, P.O. Box 2953, Columbus, Ohio 43299 or www.ColumbusRelief.org. To share memories or condolences, please visit www.schoedinger.com.
