On Monday June 21, 2021, Dr. Adam Thomas Dialectos, loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, Nouno, friend passed away at the age of 34. Adam was born on April 29, 1987 in Reading, PA to Athan and Gretchen Dialectos. Adam was a 2005 graduate of Governor Mifflin High School, before receiving his degree in Health Sciences from James Madison University in 2009. Adam attended Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine for medical school and his subsequent residency in orthopedic surgery. Adam was completing his Spine Surgery Fellowship at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.
On February 7, 2019 Adam married the love of his life and girlfriend of 12 years, Lindsey (Schuler) Dialectos. They brought a beautiful baby boy into this world on January 6, 2021, Athanasios Adam Dialectos.
Adam’s passion in life was unceasingly seeking to help others, emphasized by his desire to be a surgeon— a decision he made in his early elementary years. Adam continued this love of medicine throughout his life, which led to his achieving of the Henrietta and Jack Avart Memorial Award in 2019, awarded to the Orthopedic surgery resident who exhibited unparalleled excellence in their field during the residency program. This passion to learn, teach and support was truly understood through the patients whose lives Adam touched. When it came to his patients and coworkers, there was never a job too small for Adam.
Those who knew Adam saw his personality shine through in so many other aspects of his life. Adam loved traveling. Some of his most memorable trips were with his wife, and countless snowboard trips with his brother, family, and friends. Adam loved everyone he was around; he loved and was loved by so many. Adam was truly one in a million.
Adam is survived by his loving wife, Lindsey, and their son, Athanasios Adam; His father and mother, Athan and Gretchen; His brother Jordan and sister-in-law Megan, and their daughter Livia, Adam’s Goddaughter. His sister, Rachel, and her significant other, Bo Wagner. Furthermore, Adam is survived by his Yiayia, Joanne Dialectos, wife of the late George Dialectos; his Pop Pop, Donald Harford, husband of the late Nancy Servent; his Aunt Angel and Uncle Scott Helm; his Aunt Kelly and Uncle Darrell Markley. Adam was preceded in death by his Aunt Maria and Uncle Bob Care.
