He had taken ill recently with heart and other internal complications. Services will be held this Saturday, October 27th at 4:00 PM at St. Paul's United Methodist Church on the corner of D Avenue & 7th Street.
Coach Adair taught at Coronado High for 40 years. During that time he was an English teacher, athletic director, cheer advisor, class advisor, tennis coach (girls and boys, honored as coach of the year numerous times) and basketball coach.
But above what he did, it was how he did it; Coach Adair touched students and fellow staff in ways that they will never forget.
Here are some memories shared by faculty and former students:
To quote one of his favorite books:
“It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.” (Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451)
And Robbin's garden continues to flourish....
