Adam Ruark On May 27th, at 8-1/2 months and only two weeks from delivery, Adam passed quietly away in the warm embrace of his mother's womb. Adam was a healthy and active baby throughout the pregnancy until the night before the quiet. Adam was cared for lovingly by both his parents; his entry into the world and his family was patiently anticipated-only counting down the days. It is with great shock, anguish, and sorrow to learn that Adam will not be joining his family. There are not any answers or reason for our loss; perhaps there may be in time. His family would wish to believe that Adam was called away to serve a higher purpose. Whatever the reason, Adam will always be loved and is reserved a special place in the hearts of his family. Adam is survived by his father, mother, and sister: Daniel, Cristina, and Cassandra Ruark of Marin City, as well as his fraternal grandparents Bruce and Moselle Ruark of Dublin, CA. He has many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins living throughout California as well as Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee, Hawaii, Spain, and the Philippines. Adam was laid to rest at Fernwood Cemetery in Mill Valley. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Adam's memory to the "Make-A-Wish Foundation," St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Doctors Without Borders, The Linus Project, or Hospice By The Bay.
