Adam S. DePalma

Adam Sebastian DePalma, 54, of Jim Thorpe, PA, formerly of Bangor, PA, passed away on Monday, May 15, 2023 while doing what he loved…fishing.

Born October 27, 1968 in Easton, PA, Adam lived in Bangor, PA for many years before moving to Lehighton and finally settling in Jim Thorpe. He graduated from Bangor High School in 1987. Adam worked as a carpenter and was self employed for many years. He was an avid outdoorsman, and especially enjoyed hunting, fishing, and camping. Adam was a fun loving, kind hearted man who was loved by many. Most of all, he was a loving father, son, grandfather, and brother who will be missed by all who knew him.

Adam is survived by his daughter Ashlyn B. Guerrero and her husband Joshua, his mother Eileen (Geek) DePalma, his four brothers John DePalma, Jr., David DePalma, Andrew DePalma, and Matthew DePalma, his two sisters Theresa Rosado and Cynthia Christman, and his two grandchildren Benjamin and Gianna. He was predeceased by his father John DePalma, Sr.

A Celebration of Adam’s Life will be announced at a later date. Arrangements are under the care of the Johnson-Walton Funeral Home, 24 Church Road, Milford, NJ.

You will be missed. We will always remember playing softball and hanging out. Then years later finding out our kids were getting married making us in laws. Rest in Paradise Adam.

Adam- Thank you for being a wonderful friend. Those words of encouragement and our run on sentences or rambles that left us both saying “Huh?” Thank you for never judging! Every time I make meatballs I’ll have to check to see if your giving me more “tips!” Catch the big one, bud! Fish on forever!

From: Tonya Reimer-King
To Adam's family, I was so very sad to hear of Adam's passing. May he Rest in Paradise and catch the big fish while he's at it. Adam, Thank you for always being a good friend and always saying hi when you saw me and never judging me because of my disability. I'm going to miss you pal. See you one day and then maybe you can teach me how to fish.

Adam could light up any place, anytime, he would appear. I've shared some of the deepest and funniest laughs, with Adam. He had a sincere, heart of gold. He definently loved life, to the fullest. Very sad to hear of his passing. My heart and sincerest thoughts and much love, to the family. Always cherish the loving memories, you shared with him, and he will forever, be with us all. Cast those lines, my sweet friend. Until we meet, and laugh till we cry again.

Adam was a kind and funny person that I always enjoyed seeing although it has been many years. My heart is with his family and friends.

From: Scott Mulitsch
I often think about Adam and the fun we had together when we were young. Especially when we bow hunted and went grouse hunting along the mountain. My condolences to Adam’s entire family.
