As reported, an investigation was launched to discover why the 18-year-old, of Blair Walk, was standing on a track between platforms at the railway station in the West Midlands.
British Transport Police said it was a tragic accident.
Head of year at Oasis Academy Immingham Allan Albery said: "Adam arrived in Year 7 at the old Immingham School and left at the end of Year 11 after it had changed to the Oasis Academy Immingham.
"Adam was a bit of a character with an infectious cheeky grin.
"He had a very close group of friends and they could depend on him. He was a real friend."
He added: "You could not help but like Adam. This was felt by staff and pupils alike.
"All Adam wanted was to leave school, get a job and earn some money. Adam did this with great success. He will be truly missed. God bless Adam and rest in peace."
Friends have left tributes on a Facebook page dedicated to Adam – RIP AdamKennedy.
One has had a tattoo reading: "Never say goodbye because saying goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting."
Chris Allenby wrote to Adam's family "Thinking of you all at this time."
Cheriemick, Rachael, Zoe Crabtree, Sean and Ian posted: "Lost but not forgotten."
A funeral service will be held at St Andrew's Church, Immingham on Monday at 11am followed by a burial at Mill Lane Cemetery.
