Peter Edward McAdams

May 26, 1972 ~ August 10, 2020

With our deepest sorrow, we announce that Peter Edward McAdams, age 48 our beloved son, brother, uncle, family member, and friend passed suddenly from a cerebral hemorrhage on Monday, August 10, 2020.

Those who knew Pete, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.

Pete will be missed every day by his Mom, Nancy, his dad, Don, his sisters, Amy McAdams-Gettings (mom of Doolin and Evelyn) and Erin Ledermann (wife of Jason and mom to Ian, Elsa, Saul, and Henry), his loving Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and many many great friends.

We know Pete was greeted by his Grandmother, June Cole and his three black labs on the eternal quest for the big fish and watching over his 6 nieces and nephews, reminding them to “love one another.”

We LOVE and MISS him so very much!

In the summer of 1993, I, with a New Zealand mate, turned up on the doorstep of Don and Nancy’s home in Kohler, Wisconsin. Tom, my New Zealand mate, was a friend-of-a-friend of the New Zealand girl (whose name escapes me), that Don and Nancy were billeting. Within an hour of arriving, beds were set up for us in the basement, and Nancy had organized work for us both at a ranch where she and her youngest daughter, Erin, kept horses. To say we were overwhelmed with hospitality, generosity and love is an understatement. I think we stayed about 6 weeks (on a number of occasions we expressed a concern at how long we had stayed, but Nancy and Don insisted we stay longer) I celebrated my 26th birthday there. Pete, who had come up from art school in… Tennessee? (my memory’s a little patchy) celebrated his 21st birthday a few days before mine. He was a great guy, and showed us around Kohler. He also took us down to Milwaukee where his older sister, Amy, was living. (We were even invited to attend Amy’s graduation). Pete talked about hiking the Appalachian trail (he’d done parts of it before), and so we decided to hike it for a few weeks. Don organized a truck ride to Pennsylvania for us, and for 3 wonderful weeks we hiked some beautiful stretches of the trail. Pete then had to return to school, and I continued on for another month. I then travelled with Tom into Mexico and Central America, returning home – eventually -to Australia in 1996. My time with the McAdams was memorable, and I was deeply saddened to learn of Pete’s, and soon after, Nancy’s, passing.

I am Saul his nephew. A few minuets before he passed I was sitting down stairs then I when I went up to check if he wanted coffee. I went up and checked he didn’t answer from the bathroom so I put my ear against the door. All I heard was mumbling so I told the adults in the house they called the 911 and took brought him to the hospital after he passed my parents would tell me what happened until now. I really wish he was still here because when he was alive he was basically like my best friend I had a group called the McCrackens we had this secret language and everything. He also told me a bunch of his stories in the front while he smoked. So I never got to say goodbye or I love you.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
