Dr. Dale Brian Adamson, age 64, passed away on July 18, 2020, unexpectedly. He passed away surrounded by the loving voices of his wife, children, and grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his father Dr. John Brian Adamson and mother Iva Lois Adamson. He is survived by his beloved wife of 44 years, Mary Adamson, and his sister Aileen Wells. Dale and Mary had five beautiful children together: Heather, Meagan, Jonathan, Shannon, and Jeremy. They welcomed their “bonus children” with loving arms: Mark, Leo, Maddie, Zac, and Emily respectively, along with their grandbabies, Leo, Hazel, and Baby Rani, expected in the Fall. His greatest love was that for his wife, children, and grandchildren.
Dale dedicated more than 30 years of his life to the care of others. He spent the majority of his career practicing Family Medicine at Little Falls Hospital in Little Falls, NY. A few years ago, Dale and Mary returned to Melbourne, where Dale practiced medicine at HealthFirst Merritt Island Clinic. Dale had a great love for his patients, appreciation for his colleagues, and a passion for helping others that inspired those who knew him.
Dale enjoyed thunderstorms, ocean breezes, Shorin-Ryu Karate, James Bond movies, gin and tonics with three olives, and the occasional Vesper martini. He and his family also adored Disney. Dale’s favorite character was Tigger and you would often hear him sing, “…the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is I’m the only one”. And that he was— a one-of-a-kind caring soul that left this earth before his time.
From his family: Rest in Peace my Sweetheart, my Daddy, my Pop Pop.
