He left the entertainment industry in the 1980s, claiming that he did not enjoy the glare of the spotlight or, for that matter, anything associated with fame.

At Chatsworth High School in the San Fernando Valley, Adam started acting. His theater teacher also taught Kevin Spacey and Val Kilmer, among other well-known performers.

Sadly, Adam struggled with substance misuse, and in 1991 he was arrested after breaking a pharmacy window to get drugs. Dick Van Patten, his television father on “Eight Is Enough,” came to his rescue. He also faced other legal problems.

“Life is for living, and I live my life to the utmost every day” is Adam’s motto.

RIP Adam, who was 54.
