Adam was born on December 21, 1941 to Elsie and Joseph Garchinski in Melfort. He took his grade 1 to 8 at Belgrave. Then attended grade 9 in Fairy Glen, grade 10 in Maryville, and finished grade 11 and 12 at Fairy Glen. After completing his grade 12 he farmed with his dad and also worked on construction with the Melfort School Unit. One of his jobs included completing the Reynolds Central School Auditorium where his children and some grandchildren have attended. He continued employment with Pineland Feed and Seed crushing feed for farmers.

On June 29, 1963 Adam married his high school sweetheart, Sonja. They spent their first year in Melfort, and in 1964 they moved to the family farm where he farmed with his dad. Their marriage was blessed with 4 children: Charlene, Greg, James and Janice.

Adam was involved in many community organizations. For 41 years he was an active board member with the Fairy Glen Coop. On December 1, 1964 he became a member of the Knights of Columbus and in 2019 he received an Honorary Lifetime membership. At a young age he was involved with the St. Helen’s Parish serving as an altar boy until his 30’s where he took on other responsibilities, always using his powerful voice to lead the congregation in song.

He had many interests throughout the years which included playing the bass fiddle for the Rhythm Rascals, coaching his boys in hockey, hunting, trapping, and fishing. He had a great love for his family. Farming was his passion where he spent many hours with cattle and walking the fields. He guided and supported his children and grandchildren to be faith filled, generous and compassionate people. He was rooted in his Catholic faith, no matter what God handed him in life, he accepted. He will be missed dearly.

Adam will be remembered as a man with few words, but yet he spoke volumes. He would say “you don’t learn anything by talking”. He was seen as a kindhearted, genuine man and respected by many.

Adam is predeceased by his mother and father -Elsie and Joseph, mother and father-in-law -Sigrid and Sam Newland, brother Peter, and sister-in-law Stella.

Left to mourn are Adam’s immediate family, wife and best friend of 57 years Sonja;
Charlene (Calven) Argent and children Morgan (Shawn), Sheldon (Christina) great granddaughter Stella; Greg (Tracy) Chayce, Austin and Paxton; James (Kim) Madison and Sydney; Janice (Daryl) Mackie Skyler and Piper. Adam will also be missed by his brothers Frank, Victor (Molly), Walter (Jean), Adolf (Darlene) and sister Annette (Eugene).

Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice and no one will take your joy away from you - JOHN 16:22
