Adam Kearns Memorial Fund.

Update: The enormity of support for Adam's family is beyond comprehension. Because, ultimately, the need is endless, we continue raising the "goal" as your generosity keeps surpassing every one we set. When we created this campaign, we never even dreamed it would receive this kind of support. YOU are amazing, and your kindness a testament to Adam's significant impact on everyone he met (and even many who he hadn't). Every dollar goes right to Adam's family to help with their future. Thank you!

On Saturday, Dec. 15, one of the brightest lights in the Credit Union Movement died unexpectedly. Adam Kearns passionately loved credit unions, deep thinking, being a good friend, the Minnesota Vikings, and, more than anything, his wife Katie and sons Rhett (age 4) and Cole (age 6 months).

If you'd like to help Adam's family as they navigate the future without him, you are welcome to make a donation here. Funds will be placed into a credit union account (of course; Adam would demand no less) for them. We have aspirations that it could be used to help with the kids' childcare and future academic education.

Adam’s wife is finding comfort in hearing people’s memories and stories of him. Any fond or funny recollections and photos you have to share also help build a trove of memories for his sons. If you have memories to share, please post them using "Leave a Comment" below to share with his family.

Additionally, if you're interested in providing a meal or support with grocery expenses, a Meal Train has been created for the family ( and you are welcome to sign up to help.


Details for celebrating Adam’s life … and what a life it was … have been finalized. A visitation will be held Wednesday, Dec. 19, from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at Schoedinger Funeral (6699 N High St, Worthington, OH 43085). On Thursday, Dec. 20, at 11:00 a.m. will be a service at Schoedinger, with a wake immediately following at Blarney Stone Tavern (2245 W. Dublin Granville Road, UNIT 111, Worthington, OH 43085). Thank you for the support you’ve shown his beloved family. Please keep Adam’s family in your thoughts.!/Obituary
