Terrell Danner Adamick was born June 14, 1949 and passed away in his home on St. George Island on Saturday, March 9, 2013.
He was a peace-loving artist and musician/songwriter, a Viking sort of guy with a love of nature and a giving heart. He will be missed by his brother John (Beth) Adamick; nieces Hillarey (Joe) Breedlove, Monica (Will) McKinney, and Star Squires; nephew Aaron (Beth) Adamick; his partner-in-life Lori Craig; and hundreds of great friends scattered over many states.
Terry was raised in Atlanta and Germany. He attended the Atlanta Art Institute and went to work in the art department of Ted Turner Network upon graduating. He also spent years as a carpenter and was instrumental in helping to restore Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery following a tornado.
Terry’s artwork ran the gamut from serious portraits to whimsical pet dreams. On St. George Island, he will be remembered for painting the Yacht Club’s luau cut-outs, his participation in Mr. Easter Bunny pageants, his “Animals A to Z” children’s book and “St. George Island Coloring Book,” the new library’s first sign, his St. George Island map, original Christmas cards, and nature photography. His Atlanta friends will treasure the many years he lived at The Farm.
Terry, also known as “Captain Banana,” loved many things including old Westerns, playing guitar and singing in several not-quite-prime-time bands, dressing up in costume, tie-dye and The Who. A memorial with music is planned for later this spring.
A fundraiser to cover funeral home, medical, and associated expenses was held Sunday, March 17 at Eddy Teach’s Raw Bar on St. George Island. Other donations can be dropped off at The Garden Shop in Apalachicola, or dropped off or mailed to Lori Craig at 1000 W. Pine St. on St. George Island.
Kelley Funeral Home handled all arrangements.
