Adam Joseph McNeilly

April 23, 1978 – August 30, 2014

Adam Joseph McNeilly, 36, passed away Aug. 30, 2014 in Pendleton, OR Born April 23, 1978 in Salem to Joseph B. McNeilly and Terria L. (Falconer),

 Adam lived with his wife and son in both Pendleton and Pacific City. Adam, a devoted husband and father who made it his priority to provide for his family in both work and play, he enjoyed hard work but he enjoyed time with his family more and thought it beneficial to spend time with them doing out doors activities like hunting, fishing and camping; the out-of-doors was much more than just a way of life, it was his families way of life.   

He is survived by wife Laura (Peek) and son Dylan, Pendleton; mother Terria Wallace, Pacific City; grandparents Earl and Marilyn Falconer, Milton-Freewater; grandmother Arthene Sigsbee, Walla Walla, WA.; and many other family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father Joseph; step-father James S. Wallace; and grandparents Burrell and Helen McNeilly.  

Adam loved spending time with his mother Terria and step father James in Pacific City where he would be helping restore their house and doing many other projects, not only was Adam a wonderful son and always willing to be helpful to his family, Adam’s caring nature was also reflected in his desire to help others, he was always willing to help with projects big or small, family and friends alike knew you could call on him day or night and know he would come to your aide and lend a helping hand. Adam built relationships like the one with his father-in-law Jerard Peek that went from respect of one another to a father and son relationship that when spoken to about news of Adams father, Jerard simply said “I’m his father”, and Adam would say “that’s my dad”.  Even now his status as an organ donor shows his true heart that was full of compassion for others and especially  for children with cancer, Yet another reason why being an organ donor was so important to him, his hope was that by being a donor it would somehow help fight the cure or at least prolong someone else’s life.

His friends and family will miss his smile and sense of humor, as he was so much more than just a friend, brother, son, father, and even husband to those closest to him.
