He was an accomplished artist and had pieces shown throughout Austin in his life time. Adrian was a wonderful, big-hearted person. He never knew an enemy and had lots of friends. His jovial and light hearted nature made the time spent with him indescribable, and his powerful presence was definitely one of a kind. Adrian's passions were painting, decorating Christmas trees, music, clothes and dancing. The time he spent on this earth was one of celebration, laughter, remembrance, one of a kind and joyful. He will be terribly missed by his aunts, Rachel Samplaski, Renee "Bat" Smith, Alvina (Gabriel) Garcia, Frances Salazar and his uncle, Johnny Aguilar.
He is especially missed by his cousin/sister Jan Justice Adams. Sean Justice and Joshua Adams will miss him terribly for he taught them and showed them so much. He had cousins by the dozens.
