Adrian spent his early years in Farmington, NM., where he leaves behind numerous family members including aunts, uncles, cousins and childhood friends. However, Grand Junction is where he was raised and called home, it’s where he became the outgoing and talented young man we all know and love. It didn’t matter where Adrian went, where he was going or what he was doing, he brought light and laughter to every situation. Adrian had a gift for music and could play any instrument placed in front of him, but above all else he loved playing the guitar. Some of the many hobbies he enjoyed when he wasn’t playing music were long boarding and skate boarding. Adrian was all about his family circle and spent a lot of his free time in the company of his best friend and sister Brooke or his favorite, playing video games with Abbie, Makenna and Bubba.
Adrian is loved dearly and will missed by all, his spirit is now lifted high and bright for all to remember.
