May 17, 2003
Adam passed away suddenly on May 17,2003. He will be sorely missed by many including his mother and father (Lorraine Werk and Dave Schellenberg), his sister Joy, brothers Kevin and Blair, nephews Ben and Dominic and nieces Stephanie and Alexandra. He will also be greatly missed by his very close friend Philip Lorensen and stepbrothers Allan and Wayne Schellenberg. Adam spent almost his entire life in Lake Cowichan and attended school at A.B. Greenwell, Stanley Gordon and Lake Cowichan Senior Secondary. He was an active member of the Cowichan Lake Salmonid Enhancement Society and contributed to many fish habitat improvement projects in and around Lake Cowichan. The society will miss him very much because he could always be counted on to lend a strong hand to any job including those that would daunt most people. Adam enjoyed hard physical work. The tougher the working conditions, the more Adam relished the job. In the last few years, Adam and Philip Lorensen operated a small landscaping firewood yard maintenance and janitorial business in and around Lake Cowichan. Adam will be missed by his many customers because, aside from the job at hand, Adam would cheerfully do anything else that needed doing from repairing a lawnmower to patching a roof.
Ad we loved you dearly and will miss you the rest of our lives.
Funeral services will be held at the United Church on Tuesday, May 27.
