  1. Dear Kanaskie Family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you. Adam was a great role model for me as a teacher and administrator. I had the good fortune to become EPMS’s principal after Mr. Voelker who replaced Adam. I invited Adam back for EPMS’s 30th Anniversary in 2000, which was the last time I saw him and Mrs. Kanaskie. Great leader and person, who I admired.

  2. A wonderful life well lived. We students of East Pennsboro School will always remember how he walked the halls and talked to everyone with interest. A good man.
    John & Karen Purdue
