ADAM WILSON MICHAEL DISABATO
1979 - 2020
Beloved son, brother and uncle died unexpectedly, naturally, peacefully on Friday, May 29, 2020, at home in Monroeville. We, his family, are so blessed to have had Adam in our lives. Born in Greensburg, PA on July 30, 1979, Adam remains loved by his parents Beverly and Bill DiSabato of Hilton Head and Pittsburgh, and his brother and sister-in-law Christopher and Estelle DiSabato, nephew, Lucien and niece, Josephine DiSabato, of Hilton Head. Adam was raised with Faith, Family, and Fun. He loved family get-togethers, especially holidays and picnics with his Wilson, Vitulla, and Cubarney cousins, aunts and uncles, who survive him now. Adam will be deeply missed by his life-long friends of 40 years, Brian Lauffer (wife Nicole and daughter Brianne) of Morgantown, WV. and Brian’s mother, Jane Lauffer (husband Larry, dec) of Ruffsdale, PA. And we can’t forget Sugar our family dog, Adam’s devoted friend for almost 13 years. Shuggie misses him greatly. Adam is predeceased by loving grandparents Richard and Charlene Wilson and Jean DiSabato and William DiSabato, and aunt Nancy Wilson Walters. How they loved their “Adamo!” Adam celebrated life! He was a musician, a poet, and an artist. He had a talent for writing short stories with a terrific command of the language, full of wit and humor. He always said to me “Mom, there’s a book in me somewhere!” Adam was a true Pittsburgh guy. He loved all things Black & Gold and was an expert at waving the Terrible Towel. He was accomplished in Karate, enjoyed yoga, movies, and good food, especially crab legs. In fact, Adam was set to fly to Hilton Head on Sunday, May 31st to visit his family and have crab legs at his favorite restaurant on the Island. He was so looking forward to meeting 1-month old Josephine and being the fun uncle to Lucien. However, God is first and Adam must be needed for greater things in Heaven. Adam was studying nursing at CCAC and had just been invited to join the Honor Society. How proud we are of him. In the past few days we have heard stories about Adam’s kindness toward others, how he would check on friends in need, or stop by to say hello to a grieving friend, or send cards to just say hello. He was a good person. His smile was contagious, especially at SarahCare Adult Day Center in Forest Hills, where he worked for the past 10 years. Adam was loved and respected by staff and clients and SarahCare will not be the same without his compassion and gentle touch. Adam always had compassion for those less fortunate than himself. His passion was advocating for the unborn by participating in the Right to Life Marches in Washington, DC, praying at the 40 Days for Life rallies in Pittsburgh, writing advocacy letters to legislators, and even facilitating a monthly Respect Life Gathering. We are extremely proud of the impact he has made. In remembrance of Adam, donations may be made in his name to Pennsylvania Foundation for Life/40 Days for Life 3050 Pioneer Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15226. (412-398-9667).
