Family Tree: Willis
eldest son of Doug and Pam Willis, Adam Willis decided to
follow in the footsteps of his mother and study medicine at
university after completing his HSC.
in his first year of Medical School, Pam and Doug decided
to move to a smaller house, No. 28 Ramsay Street, with youngest
child, 15 year-old Cody. Adam initially planned to find a
flat to live in, but after realising the expense of being
a student, he opted to move with his family into No. 28.
for cash, Adam took on a part-time job chauffeuring for next
door neighbour Helen Daniels'
limousine business, Home James. Adam quickly fell for Caroline
Alessi from over the road, but she was already in a relationship
with the older Jim Robinson.
Adam soon found himself embroiled in silly competitions with
Jim in an attempt at impressing Caroline. The competition
annoyed Caroline, but after she split with Jim, she realised
she was attracted to Adam, and they started dating. However,
Caroline was in a well-paid job as assistant manager of the
Robinson Corporation and Lassiter's Hotel, leading Adam to
develop a chip on his shoulder about the difference in income
between the couple. Adam could never shake off the way in
which he felt inferior to Caroline, and they eventually decided
to break up.
his medical studies started to falter, Adam decided to pack
in Medical School and do what Doug had always wanted him to
do - join the family business, Willis Construction, as an
apprentice builder. But Doug realised long ago that Adam didn't
want to be a labourer, and decided to make his days on the
building site as miserable as possible so that Adam would
realise he was more suited to a life of academia as opposed
to manual labour. Doug's plan was soon a success, and much
to the delight of Pam, Adam returned to Medical School.
love arrived for Adam when he fell for Gemma
Ramsay, who lived with her aunt Madge
Bishop two doors away. She had just come out of a relationship
and was at first reluctant to commit to another one. But having
realised how strongly she felt about Adam, she eventually
gave in and started seeing him.
only a few months together, however, Gemma was offered a job
at an animal sanctuary in Newcastle, New South Wales. After
talking it over, Adam decided she should go and he agreed
to follow her when he could transfer to a medical school in
Newcastle. Gemma didn't have to wait too long to be reunited
with Adam, however, because after a month, Adam had secured
a transfer and bid his family goodbye to move to New South
Wales. He and Gemma later got engaged there, and Adam completed
his medical studies, finally becoming Dr. Adam Willis.
