Adam C. Bryan

April 23, 1978 - September 3, 2015

On September 3rd , 2015, Adam Craig Bryan was released from his struggle with addiction.


Born on April 23, 1978 to John and Cheri Bryan, Adam’s 37 years were filled with laughter and with his passing the world became a less funny place. With three older brothers and two older sisters, that liked to pick on him, Adam learned early that he needed a sense of humor to survive. He used this sense of humor to make everybody he was around laugh. He was a constant joker that never took himself too serious and always liked to make a scene. When going out in public with Adam, you always had to be prepared to be embarrassed.


Adam had a very loving soul and a soft spot for dogs. Adam married Talisha Goodrich in 2008. Talisha’s daughter Lilly became the instant love of his life and his “Secret Agent” daughter Breeana was born in 2009. Adam and Talisha were later divorced.


There was nobody Adam loved more than his two daughters. The last few years of his life Adam became quite adept at art. His daughters, his dog and his artwork kept him going these last couple of years


Adam also loved his nieces and nephews and loved to joke with them whenever they came over. .


Adam is survived by his parents John and Cheri Bryan; grandparents Lester and Norma Bryan; sisters Amber Harris, Andrea Stacey; brothers Aaron, Aaric, and Alec; daughters Lilly Petersen and Breeana Bryan, and crazy pit bull “Spooner”.

We would like to remember Adam before the ugly and vicious talons of addiction took hold of his life. We invite all to celebrate Adam’s life.

My mom - Sandra Powell just told me about Adam's passing. Oh... I want to hug your family and send you all my love and prayers. I wish I had words to comfort you in your pain and sorrow. I hope you find a little comfort in knowing that Adam's passing brought my mom and I closer in talking about addiction and healing and processing grief and the ability to cope with trauma. We love your family and think the world of you as parents and as people. Addicts feel and process things very deeply - Adam is the trailblazer now on the other side. Big Big *HUGS* to your family - Love, Lynette Miller
