Adam Libby

Adam Libby, also known as "The Heat is On," 54, was originally from the state of Maine and moved to Berlin 12 years ago. He passed away on Wednesday, May 10, at his home, surrounded by his family and close friends, after a long difficult battle with cancer. 

He joins his mother and father Jackie and Al Libby of Maine. He is survived by his brother Thomas Gagne, son Kyle Farrar, grandson Dominik Farrar, all of Berlin; and another son Eric Farrar of Maine. Also, the love of his life for the last six years, the beat to his heart Melanie Croteau, his "Lovey" of Berlin; their five dogs, many other family members and close friends. 

Adam was a man of many words and talents. He loved his people, dogs, four-wheeling, fixing anything and everything, and of course, his Dunkin Donuts coffees. He loved being heard telling wild stories and goofy jokes, he always knew what to say when no one else did and was happy to share his opinions and advice. He touched countless lives in his short 54 years of life. He will always be remembered and missed by the many lives he was part of. 

A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, May 24, at the Harvest Christian Church at 6:30 p.m. All are welcome.
