Adam was a man of many talents and hobbies. He loved the outdoors - fishing and swimming (especially with his daughter Alaura) and boating were among his favorite activities. His interest in plants and animals was deep-rooted and he enjoyed exploring information about nature and the universe as a whole. Adam was always up for a challenge; he had an unshakable determination to make things work again, which made him an exquisite carpenter. He also had mechanical skills that only added to his extensive knowledge in different areas.
Adam’s care and love for animals and nature came naturally to him. His willingness to do anything to help anyone he encountered was inspiring; never did he shy away from a new challenge.
Adam's curiosity extended well beyond nature into the kitchen where he thoroughly enjoyed preparing meals at home. Holidays and special occasions always brought him immense joy as they were an opportunity for him to get together with family And friends.

We celebrate a life full of love, compassion, and unfaltering determination. Adam Lucas Black was an inspiration to many and will be deeply missed by everyone who knew and loved him.
