Adam passed away suddenly on August 5, 2021. He was born in Billerica, MA, on July 12, 1987 to John and the late Pamela Shea. He is survived by his father, his older brother, John, and many loved friends and family. Over the years Adam held many jobs. While he was an incredibly hard worker, it didn’t take long for his adventurous side to flourish. As a Chelmsford High graduate, Adam discovered his passion for motors: bikes, cars, trucks, and anything else he could get his hands on. Adam’s dedication to helping others is surpassed only by his willingness to do anything to get a room full of people to laugh. He was a very loyal friend, brother, uncle and son. Adam is remembered by his bright smile and sarcastic sense of humor. His energy was magnetic and whether you knew Adam for five days or five years, his infectious personality left a lasting impression on us all. While his quick wit and sass will be sorely missed, may his knack for adventure and his dedication to his loved ones live on through us all.
Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glint on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft starlight at night. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die. www.burnsfuneralhomes.com
