Adi was the youngest of 11 children born to the late Matthias and Josefa Kropfel. He is survived by only one brother, Johann (Krista).
Adi was a most extraordinary husband, father and friend, a larger-than-life character full of energy, vitality and adventure. His warm welcoming smile, captivating charm, great sense of humour and most of all his boundless love of life and people touched countless lives.
