Adam John Slonim

September 29, 1978 ~ May 10, 2019 (age 40)



Age 40, passed away on May 10, 2019 of heart failure. Adam was born September 29th, 1978. He played hockey in his youth and graduated from Wayzata High School. Adam enjoyed going to hockey games with his father and brothers, playing poker, whether for fun or for the money, boating, fishing, and was a lifetime lover of limousines. He was a renowned story teller and never let the facts get in the way of any of his stories. Most of all, he was a kind and gentle soul with a contagious laugh, which was magnetic for all that met him. 

Adam was very close with his mother and was happy to provide her support and care for many years. Always confident, he never let the disability he was born with hinder him, but instead was able to turn it into an advantage. He could make anyone he talked to feel comfortable and welcome. He was especially relatable to children in a way that very few people can be. He was very proud of being an uncle and was also a long-time supporter of single mothers. 

Adam is survived by his mother, Kim Dunlap, his father, Alan Slonim, brother Curt Slonim, nephews, Sawyer and Cooper Slonim, and niece, Endsley Slonim. He is preceded in death by his brother, Reid Slonim. 

Please join us in celebration of his life on Friday, May 17th at 7:00 pm, with visitation starting at 6:30 PM at David Lee Funeral Home, 1220 East Wayzata Blvd, Wayzata, MN. The celebration will continue at the Wayzata Muni where we will have a toast in his honor. 

Adam will be greatly missed and loved by everyone whose life he ever touched. We are all lucky to now have one more angel watching out for us. As a donor, Adamʼs generosity in life continues through his death. 

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations made to The Muscular Dystrophy Association.
