CAMDEN & LINCOLNVILLE – Adam M. Knight, 31, died March 31, 2015.
Born in Rockport, December 9, 1983, he was the son of Gilbert H. Knight, Jr. and Carolyn L. Graves Knight.
While growing up in Camden, Adam attended local schools where he enjoyed playing in the band, basketball and other sports.
In earlier years, while growing up Adam loved animals, especially his dog ‘Amos’. He loved fishing, trips to Fun Town with his parents, riding the Flume, camping trips with his friends, and family trips to Story Land and Six Gun City, as well as lots of wonderful memories with the whole family at his grandparents’ cottage in Washington, Maine.
In more recent years, he worked at Dyers Auto Detailing in Lincolnville and with Rosie Gerry, where he was able to pursue his passion of restoring antique automobiles. A self-taught body and fender technician, his friends reported that Adam was the best at this trade that they knew.
