THORNDIKE – Adam David Kaufman, 38, passed away peacefully in his sleep Nov. 30, 2011. Born Aug. 6, 1973, in Attleboro, Mass., Adam moved to Maine as a young child.
He attended Searsport District High School, and went on to study culinary arts at Eastern Maine Technical College and then music theory at the University of Maine at Augusta. Adam’s greatest joys in life were loving his girls and family, music, caring for the elderly, and of course, his puppy, Pele. In recent years, his passion for music led him from the stage to the studio, finally owning his own business, Alchemy Recording Studio, Belfast, with a vision of providing an opportunity for children and young adults of the community to create and share their musical gifts.
Having touched the lives of so many, he will be eternally missed by his fiancee, Wendy Pastio and their girls, Sarah and Kirsten; parents, Ronald P. Kaufman and Brenda Curtis Kaufman of Winthrop; brother, Devon; sisters, Jennifer of Providence, R.I., Danielle, Jenna, and Georgia Meservey and her husband, Brent, of Thomaston; nephews, Kai and Ayden; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends.
We will gather to share our memories of Adam 11 a.m. until time of funeral services noon Saturday, Dec. 3, at Young Funeral Home, 31 West Main St., Searsport.
