My deepest sympathy to you and your family on the loss of a truly wonderful person.
Already dearly and solely missed; an one of a kind, wonderful person, full of life and love and joy.
We all love you Adam and are praying that you may, at last, be at peace.
Though I’d only known Adam for a short time, I can whole-heartedly admit that he was the most unique, kind, generous, and willful person I’ve ever met. His extensive positivity was infectious; as it would have even the grumpiest of customers leaving cheery. He was truly an inspiration.
My heart goes out to you all in your sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
To all your family my sympathy during these difficult times.
To you, Adam, you will be missed and remembered. We spoke a few days before,
now you have left us. “Bon voyage” is all i can say, and may God bless you
always, for you were a great angel.
take care, Pierre Paul Létourneau in Montreal

I am sorry we didn’t get to know you even more
But are Blessed with what time we were given
I still can’t believe you are gone! You had so much life to live and love to give! I hope you are with Papa now, looking down on us all, another angel gone too soon! Miss you so much, what will we do without you? Love you! Aunt Cathy
Our condolence to you and your family on the your son, brother & grandson.
My deepest sympathy to the family…. Adam was a wonderful human being who loved and cared about people….. i meant him several years ago and im so glad i got to know him……. like many of you.. i feel like a part of my heart is gone…he is already terribly missed and very loved….. God Bless you all and thoughts and prayers in the days and weeks ahead!
Susan, David, Marilyn, Nancy, Cathy and the entire Bowslaugh family. We are so sorry to hear about Adam. We echo what Devin said – Adam was a truly wonderful person. Kind, gentle, compassionate, smart, funny, dedicated and friendly – so many amazing qualities and the list could go on. The world has lost a good man and for our daughter a best friend – way before his time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Well it doesn’t get much higher than heaven…..
We were both wanting to conquer our fear of heights and what
does Adam suggest, CN Skywalk. I chickened out. I believe he
conquered it. Such a big heart and a joy to know and an honor to have become
friends with. I am so saddened to hear you have left us and so sad that I did
not get the chance to say goodbye and let you know, you made me smile
each time you walked in my office.
Until we meet again…
We were so sorry to hear of Adam’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you at this difficult time.
Janet, Vic, Trevor and Darren
You were taken way to soon. I will miss everything about you, but you will never ever be forgotten.
I miss you so much, I can’t believe I will never see your wonderful smile again. You were wise beyond your years. Your kindness, thoughtfulness and wit will be truly missed. You will always be in our hearts. You and your papa can garden together in heaven. Love you.
Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
Adam was so easy to be friends with. He had a personality you couldn’t help but be drawn to. He loved with all of his heart, and he never expected a thing in return. We would talk for hours about everything from politics and world events to cooking and gardening. He loved our Sunday HBO nights, his favourite drink was a mojito and in his opinion, if you had never tried brie wrapped in pillsbury crescent roll dough (baked, of course), you just hadn’t lived. He was passionate about every charity initiative he championed, most notably, the AIDS walk.
He was sarcastic, hilarious, quick witted, intelligent (which he knew), sharp tongued and yet the most gentle and considerate human being. He had me in stitches laughing literally every time we hung out and could bring me out of a bad mood in an instant (usually with a crack at my age). One year for my birthday, as a gag gift, Adam got me a cane. He said it was so that I could get around more easily and that at my age, I should be more careful. I was 25 lol.
I will miss his sarcastic tone and his mischievous grin, his sweet smile and his infectious laugh. I will miss his strong opinions – always without apology – and his endless conversation. He was a big part of my life, my best friend, my confident and even though our time together was cut short, I am a better person for having known him at all.
My sincerest condolences to your entire family… you are all in my thoughts. I want you guys to know that Adam spoke of you all often and he truly did love and respect his family. I know that he leaves behind a trail of friends and family who loved, respected and looked up to him in return.
You definitely raised one of the good ones. He made an impact on so many lives, and I will miss him forever.
We were shocked and greatly saddened by Adam’s passing. I am sure he will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
Your Condolence I considered you Adam to be a well balance man of great thoughts and interested. One that was dedicated to many causes and would be there for you if you should need that little extra help. He loved his Gardening and his Sunday nights with close friends. We will miss the kidding around that he brought to a lot of situations “make me a Sandwich” and “Bake me a pie” was two phrases that he would use often between friends and Coworkers. So if these two phrases are mentioned it will bring us back to yes Adam and his good humor. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. With Sadness we loose a Great man in our Eyes way to young in life. My arms are outreached for Mom, Brother, Grandma and Many Many friends.
With tears shed we will miss you Adam but not forget you ever.
You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.
You can remember him and only that he is gone,
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,
or you can do what he would want:
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on…..
To our much loved Nephew, Adam, you are sadly missed but never forgotten.
My deepest sympathy to the entire Bowslaugh family. Not only have we lost a very kind and generous young man but an avid gardener and staunch Liberal, both of which the world needs more of. You will be thought of often and always remembered.
Our hearts broke when we heard the sad news….our little buddy who only 4 weeks ago said he was “sick” is now gone….
The fact that we loved him so much yet only knew him from our frequent coffee stops at the gas station is true testament of his undeniably warm character. Everything everyone has already said is so true…his smile was infectious, his laugh contagious…he was so sweet and kind and so personable, and we felt we knew his beloved Gramma personally (he spoke of her so often).
What a shock…what a loss…God grant the Bowslaugh family peace, comfort and strength at this very sad time.
I’m deeply saddened by the news of Adams passing. Boy did he put up a fight this pass year. And I am so very thankful my journey brought me to that pioneer gas station and I got to the pleasure of knowing a man like Adam. I have few words to share mostly because I am in disbelief. I know his family meant so much to him and all though I never met his friend Sheena I know she was a like family to him too. So I pray for you.
It is with profound sadness that I learned of Adam’s passing.
Introduced to the Bowslaugh family by Nancy & Don, I liked to talk with Adam about our many common interests bridging easily the age difference. Would I have loved to have a grand nephew like him : intelligent, well educated, kind and gentle.
Adam, together with your loving family and all your friends, I too will remember you warmly.
To Susan, Marilyn, David, Nancy & Don and Cathy and Ron
my heartfelt condolences.
Our Deepest Sympathy for your family.Our thoughts and prayers go out to you in this most difficult time.May God help you find peace and healing in cherished memories.
sharing in your sorrow,
Don’t think of him as gone away
His journey’s just begun
Life holds so many facets-
This earth was only one
Just think of him as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think how he must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away
And think of him as living
In the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
As he was loved so much.
We remember not just that you died but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful too forget. Love you always.
My deepest sympathy for the loose of such an awesome man. Every time I saw Adam he always had the biggest smile. For many years Adam was like the big brother I never had. He never failed to make me smile when I was down and always liked to joke around about David with me. He will be truly missed! I hope all his family strength in this difficult time.
I am sorry to hear about Adam. I knew Adam through his work at the local gas station. I would come in the store and call him “The Old Spice Guy” because he looked the actor from the TV commercials. He would instantly smile and we’d exchange a chuckle or two. The store will never be the same. I am sorry.
Susan David & Jayson I’m so so sorry to hear this news just today. Sending you all love and wishing you peace. I know how much Adam was loved by you all and those he met. I’ll always remember the charming smile of the little boy I first met. Peace!!
Susan, David and John,
Like Lori, I just recently heard of Adam’s passing and am so saddened. My heart goes out to you all. I have fond memories of Adam as a little one at school and then again later as he was becoming a wonderful man, full of kindness and passion for everything he believed in. Please know you are surrounded with love.
I am in shock , i went to gas station to make arrangements for us to have dinner and was told. Your son Adam had a very kind soul, had a great gift of gab, could make anyone laugh, and he was the best at just giving someone a one line comment. he could take a situation and make everyone comfortable. He loved his politics, cooking or working on raising funds for the aids foundations be it in Toronto, Ottawa or even here in the Niagara region. Adam thought very highly of his family and loved them. I will truly miss his smile.
He will always have a special spot in my heart and never forgotten
