Pierce Jeffery Adamson was born on July 18, 2000, to Jeffery and Derena Adamson in St. George, Utah. Just short of his 16th birthday, Pierce completed his mission here on earth on July 3, 2016 near his home in Hurricane, Utah.
Pierce was a very special young man with many beautiful attributes and qualities. One of them being a true peacemaker with a positive outlook on life. Pierce was a beloved son, brother, uncle, and friend, loved by all who knew him. A rare teenager who loved to bring laughter and joy to his family gatherings.
He was a light to his family and friends. “Everyone needs a Pierce in their lives. He cared about so many people. He touched so many lives. “He was no respecter of age, for his pure love and friendship was felt by young and old.
His strong desire to be like Christ was shown as a youth leader in his church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His duties as an Aaronic Priesthood holder were dear to his heart as he planned to baptize his younger sister. Through his commitment to the Lord, he never missed a month of home teaching in his two years as a teacher. His heart was set on serving a mission but Heavenly Father had a higher calling for his valiant servant.
The talented athlete loved to be a Hurricane Tiger. He excelled as a player and even more as a teammate. A fellow Tiger stated, “He loved sports. He was always really positive and always found the best of every situation and it made it really easy to be around him.” His love of sports was evident as Pierce jumped out of his seat to receive this year’s freshman athlete of the year award.
His intelligence was shown through his outstanding scholastic performance. He often reached out to other classmates who were in need of love and friendship. His tender heart will be missed by an overwhelming amount of people. His light, though short, burned bright.
He is survived by his parents, Jeffrey and Derena Adamson; his three sisters: Courtney, Sidney, and Whitney; nephews: Ryker and Peyton; grandparents: Jim and Twyla Entwistle, Elaine Jackson and Farrell Adamson; many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
