    Today thinking back when we were in Sunday school there was a time when Adam was always praying for rain and I think isn’t it amazing that it has rained all day today ,I think Adam would’ve got a kick out of that!
    Love you guys ! Tony and Delores Celano

  15. I have know Adam since I was about 8 years old. I can’t think of a single time that I saw him when he wasn’t smiling. He had a way of making everyone feel welcome. Even the last time I saw him (about 3 weeks ago) he was all smiles. He spoke of the church and of his desire to do more outreach even during the hardest day of his illness. I do admire his unwavering devotion to his faith and to God. Our thoughts and prayers are with you guys. The world has lost one of the sweetest souls. He will truly be missed.
    Love always
    Brad and Jackie McPherson and Family

  16. I remember Adam from high school. He was a nice guy. Rest well Adam. May God bless and bring peace to your family and friends.

  17. Adam was a fine man. Never a bad thing to say about anyone. I sure will miss his smile on campus.

  18. Renee, Justin and Mason, Peggy and family,
    Adam’s love for Jesus and the way he expressed it was the most honest testimony to the love of Christ I have ever seen. I will see Adam again in Heaven, I’m sure!

  19. Christine, Peggy and family…I was so surprised and so very sorry to hear about Adam. I got to know him when we served on jury together years ago. My heart and prayers go out to you and yours.

  20. I was saddened to hear the news of Adam’s Cancer, I am even more sad, and very sorry to hear of His passing. Knowing Adam, He gave it a hell of a fight. Cancer is so relentless, and ruthless.
    Adam was a Great, and Kind Man, a real Gentleman! There is no doubt that God will Bless Adam, and welcome Adam into His arms. God Bless the Hyman Family, as well.
    Please don’t hesitate to let me know if there is anything Yall need, or that I can do for Yall.

  21. I am so sorry loss for your loss. I went to High School with Adam and ran into him all the time at TAMU. He was the sweetest and always took time to say hello. RIP my friend.

  22. Our deepest Sympathy and prayers to the Hyman Family. Worked with Adam Jr. at A&M for a good while. Always helpful, friendly and polite with me and the people he was around. A good Man!!! May God comfort and give peace to each one of you in his family and his closest friends.

  23. Jerry and I send our deepest sympathy, as when we had horses we had Adam shoe one of our horses at one time, and he was one of the nicest farrow, he had such a gentle disposition, we are so sorry for all your loss… A gentle kind man and I know you all will surely miss, God’s blessings, His Peace and Love be with during this difficult time, love Jerry & Lillian beasley

  24. To say we will never forget Adam is an understatement, rather he will live in our hearts the rest of our days. Rarely does a person come along whom you spend so little time with yet special enough to leave such a positive impression upon your heart and soul. Adam was this man to Cecie and myself. Renee, Justin and Mason know this all to well and I will do my part to remind Elena and Ellie what their JaJa would do.

  25. Dear Hyman Family-

    The Bart Ely family would like to express their deepest condolences to you all on the passing of our good friend Adam! Thoughts and prayers are with you today and for many days to come.

  26. I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked with Adam at Texas A&M for several years and we became friends even though we didn’t keep in touch after I retired, I still considered him a friend. He was one of the nicest people I have ever known. I was glad I got to see him last June. I will always have fond memories of him.

  27. Renee, Justin, and Mason…
    You are in our thoughts and prayers. No one really understands what you are going through. I’m so sorry….
    My deepest thanks and sincerest wishes for you and your family.

  28. Renee and family, so sorry for the loss of Adam,. I know he and my brother Stewart are together in Heaven talking about hunting and fishing. Our family was very sad to hear of his illness and that he had the same Cancer Stewart had. Thank you Lord they no longer suffer

  29. My condolences to Adam’s family. It had been 40 years since i had seen Adam from when he was president on the Sons of Hermann bowling team and i was secretary/treasurer. Then after all the years went by we got to cross paths again as we both attended Brazos Fellowship church. It was so great to meet his very sweet wife, Renee. RIP Adam, you will be greatly missed.

  30. I’m so sorry for your loss Justin and Deanna. I know your dad is in a better place but that won’t make you miss him any less. You were there for him when he needed you at the end and I hope that brings you solace. He is at peace now and no longer suffering. Love, Tricia & Kyle

  31. Renee, Justin & Mason

  32. Renee, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending hugs and much love your way! Susan

  33. Renee, I am saddened to hear about Adam. I have fond memories of you and him through church and seeing you in town. I always got a hardy handshake, smile, and kind words from him. I enjoyed working with you both in Sunday school and I thank you for participating. You and the rest of your family are in our prayers as you go through your grieving process. May God give you His peace and joy that surpasses all our understanding. May He bear you up as on eagle’s wings and you feel His hugs as He lifts you up. Our prayers are with you, Sam and Sonnie Feagley

  34. I am very sad that Adam lost his fight. But he sure put up a good one. He was an inspiration to many and his joyful spirit will be missed. As one of his nurses at the Cancer Clinic, it was always a pleasure to care for him. May he Rest In Peace.

  35. We knew Adam from the Cowboy Fellowship of Aggieland. We’d like to offer our deepest sympathies to the family during this time.

  36. Renee and boys,
    I am so sorry to hear the news! My thoughts and prayers are with each of you as you learn to live in this next chapter of your lives. May God wrap His arms around each of you for peace and comfort.

  37. Hyman Family,
    It has been a week and it is still hard to grasp. You are all in our prayers. Adam was an honorable amazing man who loved his wife and life to the greatest extent. He helped raise wonderful men, his 2 sons were his pride and joy and his daughter in law brought him happiness. His 2 granddaughters made his life complete when he was first called Jaja. The love he had for each of you lives on, and time can never change that.
    May you feel comfort at this time from God and lean on him for peace.
    We were blessed to have our families unite and have Adam in our family.
    “Let us know if you need anything”. After all this was Adam’s famous line, always willing to help. We will miss him dearly.
    Love the Minneman family.

  38. My wife and I came to US two years ago. I am PhD student at A&M. Without any doubt, Adam was one of the greatest people that I met during this time here. He was wonderful. He was helpful and careful of the people around him. He was always happy. I will never forget his smiles and his shiny blue eyes. It was exactly one year ago that I lost my dad because of lung cancer and I didn’t want this to happen to Adam. I was thinking by myself three weeks ago and I was telling myself “this time if I see Adam I will tell him hey Adam let me hug you please”. But then I heard the news of his passing. He was such a wonderful guy. please accept my sincere condolences and deepest sympathies to your family and please be strong. I am sure that even now he smiles and looks at us with those shiny blue eyes. Hey Adam, we love you!
    May God bless your family,

  39. To Adam’s family, and close friends…

    I’ve been praying for Adam since I learned of his illness, now I’m praying for you because I know you are hurting.

    Adam was one of the best (of many wonderful people) that I was privileged to know and work with in my many visits to TAMU. I remember his example of commitment and respect even more than the wonderful times we spent together with so many things we shared in common.

    He was a good example to us all… I pray God will comfort you…
