Adam T. Gensamer, 42

October 18, 2020

Adam T. Gensamer, 42, of Mount Joy, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 18, 2020, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Tyrone, he was the son of Jane A. (Stott) Hamp and Timothy C. Gensamer. He was the husband of Joan M. (Weidlich) Gensamer and father of Alexander and Madeline.

Adam graduated Summa Cum Laude from Penn State University. He played the snare drum and was alumni of the Penn State Blue Band, Bluecoats, Reading Buccaneers, and Westshoremen. He previously volunteered with the Weavertown Volunteer Fire Company.
He was an avid Penn State football fan. He also cheered for his favorite Pittsburgh teams, Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates. In his free time, he enjoyed Formula 1 racing, music, sports cars, and playing the Xbox with his son and friends. Most important to Adam was his family. Making memories with his wife and children was something he treasured. He always boasted that his greatest achievement was being the father of two smart and caring children.

He will be sorely missed by his wife, Joan, parents; Jane (Richard) Hamp of Lebanon and Timothy (Carol) Gensamer of Tyrone, children; Alexander and Madeline, siblings; Drew Gensamer of Myerstown and Sarah (Justin) Funck of Lebanon, nieces and nephews; Ira, Ellis, Ava, Nevan, and Kaitlyn.

A celebration of Adam’s life will be held on Saturday, October 24, 2020 between 2PM-4PM at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA 17543. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Adam’s name may be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

I don’t know Adam, but as a drum corps alumnus with Crossmen, and from W.PA, I’m sure we have mutual friends. The marching music activity is a close knit family, and the loss of a brother so young, hurts all of our hearts. Another member of the angels drum line, RIP To his family, I wish you peace

I will always cherish getting to know Adam and becoming friends.  Whether it be talking/watching F1, eating blazing hot wings and good brews, or complaining about an Xbox game we never had a dull moment or talk.  I will greatly miss him but know he is at peace.  Good bye my friend and you will forever be in my heart, until we meet again.  Condolences to all family and friends.  I know he will be with me when I make it to Monza.

I had the privilege to march with Adam in the bass drumline in 1997 with Westshore and again in 1998 with the Buccaneers.  I loved his whit and sense of humor.  He definitely added personality to our line.  Amazing to see what he accomplished as an adult.
