Adam Todd Spotz (30 yrs old) of Kaysville, Utah has started his next grand adventure. He was born on October 3, 1993. On the beautiful sunny winter morning of January 28, 2024 with the rising sun Adam left this life to start a new journey.
Adam, born to Todd Steven Spotz and Dana Colleen Fuller Spotz, was the 4th child in a rambunctious and loving brood of 7 children. He is survived by both parents, his siblings; Sarah, Sharlene, Caleb, Joshua, Eliza and Emma, his Grandma Linda Duncan, niece, nephews and many other wonderful family members who loved and cared for Adam deeply.
Adam grew up full of energy, excitement, and a craving to always have a new experience. As a kid, he had a tenacity for leading, playing and making sure he was laughing and getting everyone else to laugh and play around him. He was a magnet for all his siblings to come closer and be together in happy or sad situations. He loved to brainstorm with you, celebrate with you, listen to you. He was a thrill seeker with a goofy sense of humour yet always the thoughtful friend and brother, never one to be inconsiderate of those in his presence. He protected those he loved and always brought a smile when he was around. He loved the sun, heat and warmth of nature and of his family. He was an awarded boy scout, a belted karate member, a runner, an outdoor/nature enthusiast with a healthy dose of ultimate gamer on the side. He loved his best friend, glued to the hip sidekick brother Joshua deeply along with all his family.
Coming out and into his adult years he started to shift and travel experiencing life and people outside of his childhood haven. He basked on the beaches of Australia, felt the rain of Washington, absorbed the desert heat of Arizona, lived through the cold of Chicago and in between always came home to check in, reconnect and take a long dip in the hot springs to rejuvenate his soul. He had friends, lovers and people falling into his charm everywhere he went. His kindness, passion and magnetism as a person never went unnoticed. Even with all his smouldering good looks he was unapologetically humble and kind in all his undertakings. His hard work, interests and hobbies were vast and once his mind was made up to try something new he never wavered. His mind and soul LOVED the movement and emotion of music and the remixes that he swore he would one day master himself. He loved riding his motorbike, he worked with his sister and brother in-law in Australia building a business, he took apart phones, motorbikes, computers and put them back together even better and just the way he wanted. He studied massage therapy, 3D programming, plants, a new language and more. His fire, creativity and craving for life and learning new things was always growing. He also started programming, designing, and planning a video game with his brother Josh.
Even after a traumatic brain injury, Adam still had the desire to be good at everything he did. To grow and learn. His free spirit always ready to take on a new adventure or experience. His greatest satisfaction and love were still being with his family. Even though the struggles and battles of his mind increased, he was determined to succeed in his own way. For the last nine months of Adams short, beautiful life he came home. He came home seeking peace and fulfillment in his religious roots. He will always be remembered, appreciated, and loved. His struggles with mental health were real and ultimately devastating. His light coming under constant fire, constant questioning. He will always be in our hearts, protected and loved. For now, his journey has just taken a new turn and while he’s not coming home this time, we’ll all be catching up with him in the next life to remind him how amazingly marvelous, wonderful, and truly incredible he was and is.
Adam, you never needed a reason, or an exemption for something. You were always good and kind and wholly you. You were always enough. We saw you, we love you and you were always always enough. Completely. Rest now sweet son, brother, uncle and friend. Rest.
