Kenai resident Mark Adamson died Friday, March 14, 2003, following surgical complications. He was 53.
A private family service is planned for a later date.
Mr. Adamson lived in Kenai since 1975 when he, his wife and their young daughter moved from Las Vegas.
He was a journeyman plumber and pipe fitter and part of the Brotherhood of U.A. Local No. 367 out of Anchorage.
"He always considered living in Alaska such a privilege, and now he lives in paradise with his Lord and savior. ... He was an artist with a boiler system and his work in Alaska will remain long after most of us are gone," his family said.
Mr. Adamson was an avid hunter and fisher and delighted in spending time outdoors with friends and family. For the last several years he anticipated his December deer hunt on Kodiak Island with his favorite hunting buddies.
Mr. Adamson is survived by his wife of 33 years, Debbie; daughter, Katrina Cannava and son-in-law Peter, both of Kenai; son, Eric Adamson and daughter-in-law Casey, both of Fairbanks; and youngest son, Nicolas Adamson of Kenai.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests well-wishers help someone quit smoking.
