He was born on June 3, 1992, in Fallon, Nevada to Lawrence C. Willie Jr. and Lorena Witty. He was raised primarily in Tucson, Arizona by his step-father, Ron Witty, and mother, Lorena Witty. Adam graduated from Mountain View High School in 2010 and married the love of his life on December 3, 2016. Together they were raising three children: Carson James, seven years, Callie Rose, three years, and Rhea Lynnee, 20 months. Adam was an incredibly proud father, and even though he was not the biological father of his son, he claimed him as his own.
Adam made friends everywhere he went and could not be missed when entering a room. He was known to drop everything for a friend in need. Adam found his calling in the food and beverage industry where he enjoyed making new connections with people every day. He was a proud bartender at Carrabbas Italian Grill, and had plans to someday have a restaurant of his own.
He had a passion for music, video games, and the outdoors. Although he was afraid of heights, he enjoyed mountain climbing and the views that would come from such heights. He enjoyed freestyling and rap battles with his friends and would write his own verses. Adam was always listening to music, and sharing new discoveries, from that music, with his loved ones. He enjoyed a wide variety of music from many genres, cultures, and decades. Adam attended many concerts with such enthusiasm and respected the art of song.
Adam’s true passion was his children, and he set the groundwork for three strong and respectful people. He had big dreams for each of his children, and was there for them with an open mind and an understanding heart. He would often say that he did everything for his family and his resilience reflected that. Family was everything to Adam. He adored his brothers and was raising his children to know and love their uncles the way Adam had loved his own aunts and uncles.
Adam will live on through his wife, his three children, two brothers, father, mother, step-father, extended family, and countless friends and family of his own making. The world is brighter for having had him in it, and we are all better for having known him. He will be deeply missed and never forgotten.
Adam’s services will be held at the Marana Cemetery on Friday January 8th. Due to Covid 19, the service will be limited to immediate family and close friends. However, a zoom session will be set up during the service starting at 10:00 AM.
