October 31, 1991January 30, 2020

Adam Joseph Vearrier, age 28 died on Thursday, January 30, 2020. He was born in Fairfax, Virginia on October 31, 1991. He was the cherished and beloved son of Dennis & Deborah Boone Vearrier and step-son of Linda Will Vearrier. Loving half-brother of Scott and Tracy Vearrier, Jennifer Vearrier Weaver and Sarah Vearrier Meusburger, and step-brother of Andrew Will and Angela Will Kuhns. Adored grandson of Judith Fegley and dearest friend of Cheryl Moore, as well as a long list of uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Harold and Bernadine Joseph Vearrier, maternal grandfather Thomas Boone, uncles Steven and Kevin Boone and Timothy and David Vearrier and niece Paige Vearrier. Adam grew up in Alexandria, Virginia, Indian Head, MD, New Port Richey and Ocala, FL, and Martinsburg, WV. He attended Musselman High school in Martinsburg and one semester at Shepherd University at Shepherdstown, WV majoring in Criminal Justice. Adam had a passion for life. He loved sports, particularly football. He was a devoted fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was an excellent artist and taught himself to play the guitar. Adam loved classic rock and roll and had mastered many popular tunes. He was also a loyal and dedicated bodybuilder, spending a lot of time each day at the gym. He was very effective at bodybuilding in everyone’s estimation but his own. He aspired to work in the medical industry, studying medical and health improvement modalities and advising those he met what they might do to improve their health. Adam had a big and loving heart. He valued everyone he met and would do anything he could to assist anyone, anytime. Adam cared about people in the purest way. He loved them for who they were and he wished the best for them, without guile and without asking anything in return. As one of his close friends wrote, “What you saw was always what you got with him, and what you saw – if you were lucky enough to be his friend – was a truly delightful, generous, easy-going, fun-loving human being.” Adam had so much goodness, so much capacity to bring happiness to others and such a bright future. The world is a lesser place without him. A public memorial in Martinsburg and one in Florida are being planned. Dates and times to be announced when available. Please do not send flowers.

The first time I met Adam was when Deb and Adam came to visit me in Jacksonville FL. Adam was just a toddler and his reaction to seeing the ocean for the first time was priceless, Deborah‘s laughter endless. It was many years later that Deb and I reconnected and I went to visit her and get to know the young man Adam had become. What struck me most was that the his joy in new experiences was just as innocent, his ability to make his Mom laugh was just as pure, and his love for her unless. Smart, warm and witty, the world is a bit smaller without his big personality to make it so wonder-ful. Rest In Peace, Sweet Adam. Thank you for being who you were and sharing yourself openly with all who took the time to know you.

I am shattered and feel lost! I don’t want to believe you are gone, Adam and keep hoping I will awake from this terrible nightmare. It’s been 22 days since we got the word, but time has stood still for me.

You knew you were deeply loved, didn’t you? I recall you asking me several times, “If I die, Dad, will you cry?” I think I responded each time by telling you, “You won’t die, Adam. Of course I’d cry.” Now, after your death, I wish I’d’ve said, “Adam! You are my joy and my strength. If you died, I’d have the biggest hole in my heart that would never heal and I would never stop crying.” I have not stopped crying since we heard at 5:53pm on Thursday, January 30, that you were gone. I have also told my other kids the same thing. “I will cry if you die.”

I also recall you asking more than once, “If I die, Dad, will you come to my funeral? Do you think other people will?” Oh Adam! I could not imagine you dying! I don’t recall my response. Probably something like the other. “Adam! You’re not going to die.” You were so afraid of death! How could this happen?
You were a hypochondriac, always afraid that every ache and pain was a sign of terminal illness and you had more than your fair share of aches and pains. There was the itching that never stopped and the insomnia that robbed you of your sleep. There was the heart palpations and the anxiety that reduced your happiness and concentration. I thought you were speaking of these ailments when you spoke of death.

Oh dear God, don’t let it be so! What should I do? No, what MUST I do if this awful thing is true?

I liked Adam, I liked Adam, I liked Adam. He was a special person and made others feels so special. When I visited his parents in Martinsburg, he always seemed to show up to say hello and give me a hug. I wondered how he knew I was there. I learned from Denny that he asked him to let him know when I visited. Hearing this made me feel even more special and recognize that I won't have these special visits from him. But, I will always have the many memories. Thank you, dear Adam, for your love and thoughtfulness. I know Jesus is hugging you now. Blessings, Lou.

Dear Adam,
I will miss your near-daily, drive-by honk and wave... and your random drop-ins to say hello...always with a smile, always asking first--about my husband, son, me and the little ones. You've always been a genuine guy, with a sincere heart for others. We've known you so long and lost you too soon. I've carried a piece of poetry with me, every day for 25 years; and while it seems too little- too late to share it with you now...your Dad said to post it anyway. :o)

After a while, you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and chaining a soul.

You learn that love doesn't mean leaning
and company and possessions don't mean security.

And you learn that kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises.

After a while, you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes open;
with the grace of an adult, instead of the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all your roads on today,
because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans.

After a while, you learn that even sunshine burns,
if you sit too much.

So plant your own garden and decorate your own soul;
instead of waiting for someone to bring you a flower.

Learn that you really can endure.
You really are strong.
You really do have worth.

Much love to you, Adam. You are and will be missed -- more than you know.

I had heard a lot about Adam before I met him. He actually was my husband’s friend. Chuck would talk about Him almost every night when he came home from work. My husband adored Adam . He worried over him and tried his best to be there for him. Chuck loved him like a father loves a son. When I met him he was so happy , and kind . He only had good things to say about my husband . I was so amazed at how positive he was . He was very polite . When my husband died it devastated me and I didn’t get to personally see or talk with Adam . But he did talk with my daughter . She was very touched by what Adam said to her about her dad. They would talk many times after that . Adam touched many people with his kindness and loving words. He will be missed so very much .

Adam, it's still difficult for me to process the fact that you are no longer with us. I remember all the fun we had with my sisters as kids. I gain comfort in knowing that you are free of struggle and sorrow now. May you rest easy Adam. I love you man.

Adam, its hard for me to put into words what shock and unfathomable loss we are dealing with... it’s hard, and tears (which you hate) are being shed. I’m so grateful for the friendship. So many summers, birthdays, girls nights where you were one of the girls, the laughs, the tears, the hugs, the shoulder... We will miss beyond words. Rest Easy Dear Adam (you got your wings early) xoxo
