Adam Avramovic Obituary

Adam Avramovic passed away peacefully on Friday, December 11, 2015 at the age of 81 surrounded by his loving family and Father Tuba. Adam was born on May 14, 1934 in Stalac, Serbia.  He was the third and youngest son of Zivojin and Ljubinka Avramovic.  Growing up in a family of boys, Adam was incredibly strong and athletic.  He enjoyed swimming the Morava River, running, boxing, and roughhousing with his brothers.  At age 14, Adam moved to the city of Novi Sad, Serbia where he studied and became a train engineer.  Thereafter, Adam met and married his wife, Vera who gave birth to their oldest child, daughter Slavica, in 1956.  In 1958, Adam and Vera welcomed their youngest child into the family, son Rade.  Ever ambitious, Adam sought a better life with greater opportunities for his family.  In 1970, Adam and his family moved to the United States settling in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin near family.  In 1976, Adam and Vera ventured to Mesa, Arizona moving closer to their daughter and embarking on a business opportunity.  That year, the couple purchased the Traveleer’s Motel on Main Street.  Adam and Vera worked tirelessly at the motel and enjoyed welcoming repeat guests year round.  In 1979, Adam and Vera were blessed with their first grandchild, granddaughter Snezana.  Three years later, they welcomed their second grandchild, granddaughter Gordana.  Both granddaughters enjoyed spending time with their grandparents at the motel.  In 1996, Adam and Vera sold their motel and officially retired.  Together they embarked on a new venture, building their dream home just down the street from their daughter, son-in-law Dragomir, and granddaughters.  Retirement suited Adam and Vera as they put their time and energy into cultivating one of the most pristine gardens in the neighborhood full of manicured shrubbery, fragrant roses, and plentiful oranges and vegetables.  In 2014, Adam’s granddaughter Gordana and husband Dragan welcomed daughter Eva Marina making Adam a great-grandfather.  Adam leaves behind his wife Vera, son Rade, daughter Slavica, son-in-law Dragomir, granddaughters Snezana and Gordana, grandson-in-law Dragan, great-granddaughter Eva, brother-in-law Radmilo, sister-in-law Radmila, nephew Aca and his family, nephew Dragan and his family, priljateji Miodrag and Nada Mikalacki, and countless Kumovi, family, and friends in the United States as well as Serbia.  Visitation will take place at the Saint Sava Serbian Orthodox Church on 4436 East McKinley Street in Phoenix, Arizona on Wednesday, December 16th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm with a Pomen (memorial) service at 7:00 pm.  The funeral service will also be held at the Saint Sava Serbian Orthodox Church on Thursday, December 17th at 10:00 am.  Following the funeral service, there will be a procession to the Mountain View Cemetery, 7900 East Main Street in Mesa, Arizona for a graveside service.  A Daca (mercy meal) will follow the graveside service at the Saint Sava Serbian Orthodox Church’s Social Hall.  Adam touched so many with his kindness and grace, which will be missed by any and all who knew him.  May Adam’s memory be eternal.
