Alan "Big Al"  Adamek
Alan “Big Al” Adamek, 64, a 47 year Wenatchee area resident, passed away at Central Washington Hospital on Friday, December 20, 2013, following a brief battle with cáncer.
He was born on October 21, 1949 at Ord, Nebraska to Emil Joe and Jessie Virginia (Michalski) Adamek. He spent his early years growing up in Ord, where he began his elementary education. They moved to Washington and briefly settled at Newport prior to making a number of moves with his father’s construction jobs on many of the Northwest dam construction projects. They moved to Wenatchee in 1966 and Alan attended Wenatchee High School. He went to work at the South End Safeway store when he was 16 years old. He graduated from Wenatchee High School with the class of 1968 and continued his education at Wenatchee Valley College. He remained working at Safeway throughout this time. He met Colleen Haddock while in high school and they were later married on November 22, 1969 in Wenatchee. They made their first home together in Wenatchee prior to moving to East Wenatchee.
Alan remained working at Safeway until becoming a Draft Salesman for Milnor Distributing in 1975. He worked through Milnor becoming Burn’s Distributing and B & F Distributing before retiring in 2006 with thirty years of service. Following a short retirement, he accepted a job working at Cintas for the past seven years.
He was a former member of the Teamsters and the Sportsmans Association.
He was an avid outdoorsman, hunting and camping. He enjoyed a good campfire up the Entiat with his buddy, Dick Feil and sharing his love for the outdoors with his grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife, Colleen Adamek, one son and two daughters, Scott (Jacqueline) Adamek, East Wenatchee, Kelley (Jacob) Torrez, Yelm, WA and Kerry (Jon) Bergstrom, Malaga; his mother, Jessie Adamek, East Wenatchee; three sisters, Marlane Gurnard, East Wenatchee, Sandy (Rob) Payne, Olympia, WA and Laurie (Mark) Youso, Libby, Montana and twelve grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his father, Emil J. Adamek, his father-in-law, Bill Haddock, brother-in-law, Larry Gurnard and numerous aunts and uncles.
A Celebration Service will be held on Saturday, January 4, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the Free Methodist Church, 1601 5th Street, Wenatchee, with Chaplain Scott Langager officiating.
