Adam Milton Pell

Adam Milton Pell

It is with great sadness we announce Adam Milton Pell joined the angels on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2020.

Adam was born in Saranac Lake on April 30, 2020, to Amber L. Pell. She is a 2016 graduate of Paul Smith’s College. He was transferred to University of Vermont Medical Center and then on to Albany Medical Center, where he stayed for a total of 68 days in the NICU. The family wishes to thank the entire facility staff for the great care of Adam, his mother and his grandmother.

Everyone who met Adam, held him, knew of his struggles. His will to be here, his dimples and his sly smile touched us all. He was a trooper.

Adam is survived at home by his mother Amber L. Pell, his maternal grandmother Amanda (Terry) Muir of Oneida, his maternal grandfather John (Kathy) Pell of Bridgeport, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and immediate family friends.

Funeral arrangements are in care of the Fortune-Keough Funeral Home, 20 Church St., Saranac Lake. Calling hours are set for 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26 at the Saranac Lake Baptist Church. A funeral service will immediately follow at the church with Pastor Ryan Schneider officiating. Family and friends wishing to leave condolences can do so at www.fortunekeoughfuneralhome.com.
