Hello Fellow Scouters:
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I inform you of the death of
one of our finest scouts. Adam Lee, 16 years old, a member of BSA Troop 260,
Life Scout, a junior at Austin High School, in Decatur, AL, died this
morning. Adam was a member of his school's football team, playing both
defensive end and tight end on the junior varsity and varsity teams. He had
been diagnosed with athletic asthma, and last night, during a game, he
collasped during a non-contact situation. The cause of death has been listed
as cardiac arrest. It is believed that he had a congenital heart problem
that was not diagnosed, much like Pete Maravich had.
Adam was an active scout of Troop 260, having been to Jambo in 1992, and to
Philmont in 1994. He was getting ready to do his Eagle project.
Please remember his family in your prayers.
Troop 260, Decatur, AL
