Adam George German was born February 23, 1948 to George and Mary (nee Folwark) German on the farm East of Endeavour, Saskatchewan. It is the same farm where he was raised on along with his five siblings.
Adam was an active little boy and enjoyed being outside. He took his grade school in Beaver Bank School one and a half miles from home. He and his siblings walked together to school doing a lot of playing and exploring things along the road. Adam and his cousin Ron walked three quarters of a mile to the corner to catch the bus to Sturgis, Saskatchewan for high school. Adam graduated in 1968 which was a proud event for his whole family.
He helped on the farm with farm work and chores. In 1969 he went to Prince Rupert, British Columbia where he got a job at the Pulp Mill and worked there for the next fifteen years. When Adam went to Prince Rupert, he lived with his cousin Ron and wife Donna, where he met his future wife Pearl Swim. They were married on February 17, 1973. They had three children David, Kalvin, and Krista. Adam left Prince Rupert in 1984 and did various odd jobs. He was at Willow Creek for a while and then in 1987 joined his sister Evangeline and husband Shane up at Ena Lake (a fly in fishing camp three miles south of the North West Territories border). Adam was a handy man and fishing guide. He soon became a favorite guide to the guests. Evangeline, Shane and Adam did many tour trips to the United States to promote and book fishing trips for the next year.
That was his introduction to Uranium City. He often stayed there in between guiding. In 1999 Adam decided to make Uranium City his home. He met Alexandra’s grandpa there and got started working for the town in maintenance part time. It wasn’t long before Adam was full-time. Adam greatly enjoyed his work. He not only took care of water problems; he did road maintenance, window glass replacement, carpentry odd and ends as needed; and many other odds and end jobs. Battling cancer, he decided to retire in 2015.
Adam enjoyed carpentry, woodworking and baking pies, and gardening. His pies were a big hit at church potluck and even for other social events. He taught his son Zander the art of making pie crust. Adam made miniature log cabins, clocks and covered wagons in very fine detail as a pastime. He enjoyed gardening very much. Adam and Zander built a greenhouse for his tomatoes this year.
Adam was predeceased by his mom, Mary and his dad, George; two sisters, Georgina (Danny) and Evangeline; brother, Ivan; brother-in-law’s, Sid Lyzun (Josie), and Danny (Georgina).
He leaves to celebrate his life his live-in wife Alexandra; step-son Zander; sons, David, Kalvin (Andrea); daughter, Krista; grandchildren, Brian, Emily, Danny and Catherine; sister, Josie; brother Peter (Karen); brother-in-law Shane. Also, Renold, Shannon (Marie) Murphy, Shelly Murphy; Pastor and Mrs. Pfaffenroth; Dean and Giselle Classen and many other special people in Uranium City. Also, many uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
