Adam Benjamin (“Ben Jammin’”) Christian, age 30, of Ptarmigan (“never mind trying to pronounce it”) Trail, Memphis, Tennessee 38134, passed suddenly at 3:31 a.m. on September 29, 2019, which notably, would be the time he went to sleep any other day. The second of three bedroom-trophies, Adam was born February 16, 1989. Adam was a Mama’s baby, a Daddy’s boy and a Ladies’ man. He would give you the Ninja Turtle shirt off his back and still puff, puff, pass in turn. Adam graduated from White Station High School where he apparently learned something. While he didn’t live by any rules, Adam was always honest and followed the rules, at least long enough to tell authorities how those rules were crap. When Adam came in a room, it changed. It didn’t just get louder, I mean the room came alive. Adam was crazy funny, had a smile that lived on his face, and an infectious laugh. He could roast you with a joke, but you’d walk away feeling better having laughed at yourself. Adam’s fashion sense was unique like his laugh, except everyone loved his laugh. Adam kept his hair in a man-bow, which he would emphatically tell you is different from a man-bun, even though it isn’t. But when he unfurled his lengthy locks all the women became jealous, and all the men became confused. Women often tried to fight him in pool halls, maybe it was the hair, but otherwise Adam was a friend and competitor to all. Adam was remarkably smart and gifted in academics, auto-mechanics, pool, poker, golf, baseball, softball, arguing, and really everything he put his brilliant mind to. Most importantly, Adam loved and was loved.

Adam is survived by his aged father Michael Christian of Coldwater Mississippi, his youthful mother Toni Roe of Memphis, Tennessee and her husband Drew Roe, Adams brother Drew Christian currently of Davison County Jail, his sister and wannabe lawyer Alex Allen of West Memphis, Arkansas and her husband and wannabe lawyer Hawk Allen, Adam’s grandparents Larry Christian Sr. of Olive Branch, Mississippi and his wife Sue Christian, by this extremely long run-on sentence, and no children we know of as of the printing of this obituary.

Visitation will be at 10 a.m. on Saturday October 5, 2019 at Family Funeral Care located at 4925 Avenue with services to begin at 11 a.m. All Adam’s family and friends are invited to attend.

I wish that there was such a thing as the "right words" to say. I will just say that I cannot begin to express how sorry I am that Adam is no longer with us. He will be missed by so many friends and family. I cared for him very much. I cannot imagine how it feels to lose a son or a brother, and my thoughts are with you all. Even though he is gone... I can still look back and smile at all the crazy times we had, and I am glad that he came into my life. I would not be the person that I am today if we had never met.

I just want to say thank you to Adam’s family for raising such a wonderful soul. It was impossible to be around him and not smile. His obituary made me laugh and cry at the same time. Such a perfect explanation of a truly unique young man. My sincerest condolences on your loss. Sending love and prayers up for you all.

I will always remember his laugh and hair. He was amazing man, sweet, funny, and always had his friends backs. Give him a bottle of water while he is keeping the High Pockets parking lot and bartenders safe. With his dinner tho give him a root beer with no ice. Forever in our hearts love you Adam. REST IN PEACE!
