MASSENA – Adam R. Miller, 13, of Jefferson Ave, unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, December 13, 2020.

Adam was born on November 1, 2007 at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center, the son of Katie L. Miller and Christopher H. LaClair. He was currently a 7th grade student at J. William Leary Junior High School. Adam was a very active child who enjoyed wrestling and playing football with both Massena Youth Wrestling and Football Teams. He also enjoyed playing the guitar and was currently learning how to play the double French Horn.

He loved being outdoors – fishing, skateboarding, and swimming were just a few of his favorite activities. He proudly participated with his family in several of the NYS Polar Plunge events held at Hawkins Point Visitors Center.

Adam is survived by his mother, Katie of Massena; his father, Christopher of Madrid; his brother, Gabriel M. Shonyo of Massena; his grandmothers, Robin A. Miller and Joyce M. LaClair, both of Waddington; his aunts, Amy L. Miller of Waddington and Beth M. Miller and her wife, Megan Hurst-Miller; and many other aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Friends may call at the Donaldson Funeral Home, Massena on Thursday from 4-7:00 PM. Due to occupancy restrictions, Adam’s funeral mass at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Waddington will be held privately. Calling hours will be occupancy controlled with those attended asked to observe social distancing and wear face coverings.

Memorial contributions may be made in his memory to the Massena Humane Society.

My name is Martin and, although I don’t know your family personally, please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your loved one. The Bible can offer great comfort in these difficult times. When Jesus was on earth he spoke about a wonderful time when we will see our dead loved ones again. This promise can be found at John 5:28,29. I hope you find comfort in these words. If you would like to learn more about the resurrection or the condition of the dead, please visit Once again I am so sorry for your loss.

Once In a great while does a student, get into a teachers heart. That’s what Adam did for me this year. I enjoyed his stories of fishing with his Grandfather and being around animals. Adam shared with me stories like I was part of his family and that’s what made our connection so important. He was a sweet kid with a bright smile, and freckles that went on for days. He knew my room was a safe spot when he wanted his skateboard to have a safety for the day. He knew he could come to me and just chat if he had free time. He was a kind and loving soul. Somewhat wise beyond his years. He spoke of his little brother with so much love, being a big brother was important to him. He once showed me a fishing photo that made the local newspaper, he was so proud, I’ll forever hold that in my heart. To Katie and the Family, I am praying for you, you are in my thoughts and prayers. And if you need anything from the Junior High family, please reach out.

All my love,
Mrs. Megan LaPrade
