Adam Nicholas Schpakow, age 40, passed away suddenly at his home in Las Vegas, Nevada on Tuesday May 23, 2023.
Adam was born in Edison, New Jersey and was raised in Colonia where he attended Saint John Vianney School and Colonia High School. As an adult, Adam resided in New York, where he met his beloved wife, Wendy. Later, the two moved to Las Vegas which was a dream for Adam.
Adam was a hardworking man and dedicated husband. In his downtime, Adam loved farming, being in nature, the Yankees, and had an unwavering passion for animals, particularly pitbulls. He was a well renowned botanical artist, whose love of plants and people was felt around the world.
Adam possessed an immense amount of generosity and compassion, known by all who he encountered as selfless and kind. Those fortunate enough to have met Adam were won over by his witty sense of humor, charm, contagious smile, and huge heart. He organized various charity events raising money for cancer patient care, among others, and was largely philanthropic with his free time.
Adam is survived by his Wife Wendy Muniz, of 11 years; his mother and father, Ann and Nicholas Schpakow; his brothers Kevin & his wife Brittany, and Gregory & his wife Michelle; his step daughter Margarita Luna & her husband Philip Nestorov; his nieces and nephews, Emma, Sarah, Liliana, Zachary, Joshua, and Vivian; his grandchildren, Manuel and Alexander; and many other loving family members and friends. While Adam will be missed terribly, his infectious smile and positivity will live on in the memories and hearts of all who met him.
All are welcome to pay their respects at a visitation service that will be held on Friday June 2nd from 3:00-7:00 PM at Gosselin Funeral Home, 660 New Dover Road Edison, NJ 08820. A private prayer service will be held at Saint Gertrude's Cemetery.
