Adam had so much natural talent and skill on a skateboard. He was always willing to go for it no matter what the outcome, and always with that most excellent Gritzmacker grin. Your family of skaters will never forget you or what you brought to the session... RIP little brother, we will grind everything on the other side...

Our hearts go out to all Adam's family and friends. Adam used to visit our home during the middle school years. He was always such a kind young man. His smile was infectious and would brighten a room. We're glad he and Cullen were friends.
