V. Bryce Adamson Obituary  V. Bryce Adamson (1946 - 2014)

My father was not just a man; he was a bold and vibrant spirit with an open heart. I am blessed and humbled to have been created by this spiritual being that touched people everywhere he went. I'm positive the joke is not lost on everyone that it was his "69th" birthday. Somehow he even managed to eat one piece of his own cake before he died. That was just my dad's sense of humor. When I was 11, he had his first heart attack and as the paramedics were taking him out of our house on the stretcher, he jokingly said "pull the sheet up over my head so all the neighbors will think I've died." It breaks my heart to say that this time he is not kidding, he is really gone. My dad's humor was his best way of coping with the trauma of life. Because of this, all of his doctor's have considered him to be a "medical miracle". He has bounced back from losing one-third of his heart from that massive heart attack at 42, then quadruple by-pass surgery at 55, and other additional chronic illnesses. My father treated his own diseases and became an athlete in his 40's. He was in amazing shape, always considered an extremely handsome man with beautiful blue eyes and seemed much younger than his years. He was a seeker of truth, love, integrity and compassion. He loved the simple things in life: his flowers, growing tomatoes, his new puppy Georgia, building his deck, the doves, taking a walk. He cherished his sweetheart Sandra of over 13 years. He loved talking to me about the meaning of life in the middle of the night when we both couldn't sleep. My father is the one person I could always ask a question and get a true and honest answer. He could build anything from anything. He was a master craftsman and Locksmith. He was the most intelligent and self-educated man I have ever known. I talked to my dad everyday for the last 38 years of my life and a piece of me died with him. Many lives will have holes in them from this loss. I thank God he was my Dad.
