OBITUARY: Adam Richard Clancy, 39

Below is an obituary from Nichols Funeral Home:

WILMINGTON, MA — Adam Richard Clancy, 39, of Wilmington, Massachusetts, passed away unexpectedly in Boston on November 17, 2021.

Adam was born on December 10, 1981, in Malden, Massachusetts to his beloved parents, Kevin Walter and Donna Marie Clancy (née Denaro). He spent his youth in Wilmington, Massachusetts, with many friends and family he carried close to his heart throughout his lifetime.

After serving honorably in the U.S. Navy as a Seabee Builder and as a Machinist Mate, Adam most recently worked for Caddell Construction in Athens, Greece where he enjoyed the outdoors, including snowboarding and mountain biking. Adam was a very skillful construction and wood worker and helped many friends with their projects over the years. Everything Adam did, he did with passion. Those closest to him will remember how much he treasured those he loved, his infectious laugh, warm embraces and larger than life charisma. Adam could find humor in almost anything and would often be caught humming or singing. He was wildly animated, full of excitement and joy, and genuinely so much fun to be around. Adam was loved and adored by so many and will be deeply missed.

Adam is survived by his son, Liam Stewart Clancy; brothers Eric Clancy, Ryan (Sarah) Clancy, sister Madison-Lee Clancy and her mother Kym (Scott) Norman; lifelong friends the Carlson family, and numerous extended family and dear friends. Preceded in death by his father and his mother.

Words cannot fully express how much we appreciate the many friends, family and others who have come together to help us since Adam’s sudden passing.
