Obituary

 

Adam Dunlap, 33, of Fort Myers Florida, passed away on September 29th, 2021 in Fort Myers Fl.

Adam was born in Fort Myers Fl on December 18th,1987.  He Graduated from Lehigh Senior Highschool where he loved every minute of being around his friends and teachers. Adam had a way of making friends in any room with his vibrant personality and bold attitude. Adam loved being involved in all manners in art and crafts, he loved being in the chorus and was always down to play some wrestling or football games on the PlayStation or give you a butt whooping on some Wii sports. He was never shy to let you know about it either. Adam was very active and loved being around his friends and family outside playing catch, going in the pool, or eating at some of his favorite restaurants (twin peaks and hooters). Adam was an avid football fan and wouldn’t miss a single Tampa Bay Bucs game. He was a tried-and-true fan defending their name even through the toughest of seasons. He also loved the WWE watching it as much as possible and even getting to meet Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Throughout his whole life Adam was happy for each day he was given and did not let the “condition” he was in bother him. He most definitely lived each day to it’s fullest and that trait is what really brought so many people into his life and created all the amazing bonds he had. He had a way to make anyone smile and would always have a joke for you the moment you walked in a room. His love and compassion for everyone in this world is inspiring to all and will be greatly missed in this world.

Adam is preceded in death by his grandparents Leta Himschoot and Daniel Himschoot, and his step father Cary Sellner.

Adam is survived by his parents Lisa Dunlap, Andy Dunlap and Susie Dunlap, his sister and brother Amber Dunlap and Cody Dunlap, and his Grandmother Christine Brick.

Funeral services will be held 10:00 a.m. Saturday October 16th at Baldwin Brothers on 4320 Colonial Blvd, Fort Myers Fl 33966.

    Adam

    Today was the day that everyone came together to say goodbye to you. I filled out a card, but it really wasn't all that I had to say...so I will say it now.

    You were(and still are) one of my favorite people ever. You were my second patient out of nursing school...and I was 23 years old when I met you. You were so strong, and caring...and genuine. If you said something nice or caring, it was a something that you said with your whole heart. You were ALL heart ALL the time. So pure and so good. We played Uno for hours out of the day sometimes...my fingers would even get sore from shuffling. I was such a sore loser, and I lost more often than I would like to admit.

    I remember walking with you around Lake's Park and you constantly driving your chair off the sidewalk looking at pretty girls...lol. I loved our conversations. I loved sitting outside with you listening to Gator Country. Your dad would be washing the boat and you would come see all the fish that he caught. I would get a face full of freckles in the heat of the sun, and you would jokingly say "Girl, those aren't freckles, those are AGE SPOTS!" And we would roar with laughter. You were so funny. I remember another time sitting outside...we would often see planes or the moon in the middle of the day. I asked you "If you could go to the moon, do you think you would?" You replied: "Is it made out of cheese?" When I answered no, you answered "No." I loved your laugh, especially when you weren't sure if you should be laughing...your shoulders would be going up and down while your face got increasingly red...and then you would just explode into full blown laughter.

    Since I've met you, I started a family of my own. My youngest daughter has extra needs, and during the period of unknown and shock, I often thought of you. You were such a joy and effected so many lives. I'm a better mom because I knew you, and being a good mom is the only thing that matters to me anymore. Everyone spoke of your strength today. Your strength was from your heart, and your heart was with your family. "Team Adam" was a term that got used various times throughout the years, and it was a real thing. Your parents were very involved. They always advocated for you, they always cared, they always showed up, they always included you. You were in the Lions Camp, you went to the Center for Independent Living to learn with people with different needs.

    I've been nursing for about 12 years. I've had many patients, and teams like yours don't exist anywhere else. I'm so incredibly lucky to have known you. You are proof that angels live among us. You've given me so much more than I could have ever given you. Thank you.

    Love, June

    I wish you the best. I know you're making things great for the rest of us by the time we get there. It'll sure be great to see you and we finally do meet again. Some of my best memories of being in Florida hiking though the everglades forest. I'm proud to have been your cousin and family. I also appreciated you keeping my uncle inline.
    Best wishes out there !

    adam,
    “hey buddy!”…or “what’s up man!” was how i always remember saying hi..
    i can hear you saying it now so clearly “what’s up!” or “hey jacob!” back to me…it’s usually what you’d say to me.
    i can’t begin to tell you how proud i am of you over the 12 years of knowing you..
    you lived everyday the best you could, you always tried your best, you really did..as difficult as things could get at times you always would somehow stay strong and true or make light of the situation..
    you were the bestest big brother amber and cody could have ever asked for, i remember seeing the three of you joke around together in the living room, you and cody would wrestle around along with andy.
    you would tell me almost anytime i ever saw you how much you love amber, and how she’s the best sister.
    your passion for what you loved was so much fun, you were always decked out and supporting what you loved, wearing your buccaneer and wwe stuff was a common appearance, you were always so proud to show it off too..
    i remember the first ever wwe event i went to was with you amber and lisa.
    i remember roasting marshmallows with you out by the bonfires and so many other special times and memories..

    adam, you’re going to be missed by so many, we all loved you.
    my deepest condolences go to the whole family and everyone that knew you.

    Adam was a good friend. Although he was limited in his physical body and in opportunities, he never lacked love for others, zeal for life or compassion. We met after he graduated. He was a video game play in fool and would beat me on a regular basis... such a zeal for life! Even when he was treated badly he did not hold a grudge for long. Ten years later we found each other again. I am so blessed to have spent many fun outings hanging out together. No matter where we were, it was about the hunt! Pretty girls were the target! What a great personality and fabulous sense of humor and adventure.Near the end we were able to talk about God and heaven. He worried the most about leaving his Mom behind and how she would cope without him. I assured him that God would take care of her and that because of her acceptance of God that they would see each other again and so would we. I won't be surprised if he runs up to me at the gate and gives me a backbreaking hug and an impish grin! I look forward to seeing him as the whole person God I tended him to be!

    Can't believe Adam is no longer with us. We know that lately he was looking for a new house, and he have found his home with God... Wishing his family love to bring comfort, the courage to face the days ahead, and happy memories to forever hold in your hearts.

    #1 tampa bay fan, wwe champion, rooster collector, mickey connoisseur…

    i wanted to write you this letter to send you off with a thank you. thank you for being the best big brother anyone could ever ask for. 27 years as your little sister will never be enough but i’m grateful for every day. thank you for every hug, every laugh, every noogie, every punch buggy(no punch backs!) thank you for loving me unconditionally even when i didn’t deserve it. thank you for taking care of mom. you’ve taught me to be compassionate and generous with my “i love you’s”. every person you met knew how much they meant to you because you made sure of it. i really hope you knew how much you meant to us…words can’t describe how hard it will be to go on without you but i know you will always be with me. we are all better people for having known you. you inspire so many people to be more caring and loving and forgiving and patient. you were so creative, so funny, so quick witted. i couldn’t even begin to list all of your talents from singing to dancing to drawing to home decorating. i’m so incredibly proud to be able to say i’m your sister(the only person with that privilege. yes i’m bragging) and i will live every day trying to be half as amazing as you were. you lived every day 100% adam. you didn’t try to be anyone else because you were already perfect(don’t get a big head now lol) no matter how hard things got or how many hurdles you had to overcome you never complained. i know you were tired and at times you wanted to give up and i thank you SO much for fighting as long and as hard as you could. we needed you as long as possible and we will always need you. my big brother. gemma’s uncle adam. i will never know what it was like to be you but you made it look so easy. you’re the bravest, strongest person i know. i need to borrow some of your strength now and for the rest of my life. i know you’ll be there protecting me and rooting me on. come and see me if you can. i’ll keep an eye out.

    i love you i love you i love you

    the best sister ever(says you),
