Adam Michael Prewitt
April 7, 1988 – February 15, 2020
Adam Michael Prewitt of Fort Collins CO, died on Saturday, February 15th, 2020 in Colorado Springs CO. Adam was 31 years old.
He graduated from Grandview High School in Aurora CO in 2006. Then went on to study at the University of Kentucky where he graduated in 2011 with a degree in Political Science. In high school, Adam was a Captain of the Varsity Swim Team where he competed locally and in State competition. Adam was also a member of the prestigious Colorado Stars Swim Club, where he competed on a national stage.
Before attending the University of Kentucky, Adam was awarded an appointment to West Point Military Academy but chose to attend the University of Kentucky instead. During his time at UK, Adam became an active participant in the ROTC and a member of the select National Pershing Rifles Society where he served as the training officer for future cadets.
Adam's post-graduate life included work as a computer industry consultant working with many fortune 500 companies as well as starting his own consulting company with his brother.
His curiosity for life would drive him to consume many books a week. Although books and knowledge were his passion, his true love was with the outdoors. Skiing, hiking, climbing, biking, scuba, and camping were among his favorite activities; as well as traveling, he has visited almost all of the states in the US as well as 14 countries.
Adam lived his life to help and serve others as he demonstrated by his love of nature and people. He had a servant's heart which was expressed in his mission trips, feeding the homeless and serving children in need.
Adam is survived by his mother, Tina Johnson Mueller (Rick), father James Virgil Prewitt (Candace), brother Eric Prewitt of Fort Collins, CO and his sister Lola Prewitt of Lexington KY. In addition, he is survived by grandparents Brenda Buntin of Lexington KY, William M and Glenna Jo Johnson of Zebulon KY, Carter and Zoe, Denver CO and many other family members and treasured friends. He was preceded by Jim Prewitt of Nicholasville KY and Bill Buntin of Lexington KY.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Eastminster Presbyterian Church in Lexington KY on Saturday, February 22nd from 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm. A second Celebration of Life will be held in Colorado at a later date.

My condolences & prayers to the family during this extremely difficult time & prayers for the repose of Adam's soul. Adam was my prom date in high school, and while I did not know him very well, he was a kind and gentle soul. May he rest in peace.

Condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones. I didn’t know Adam but I attended the hockey game that night. I was visiting from Los Angeles and was saddened when I heard of the tragedy, a lot of us from L.A. were. Whether I knew him or not he was a hockey fan and a friend of mine. Once again, sorry for your loss.

I met Adam when I first came to visit Colorado with my boyfriend, Andrew. Andrew was college roommates with Adam's brother, Eric. Eric and Adam were always together - I have never met brothers that get along so incredibly well. Most of my memories with Adam involve some sort of fried chicken or other delicious brunch food, mimosas or bloody marys and visiting breweries. Adam always the one with the plan. We followed him mindlessly through our hike in Evergreen and went white water rafting last summer with him as our lead. Adam was a talented cook --- the biscuits he made for friendsgiving last year were absolutely phenomenal.
I'll really miss him. Andrew and I are absolutely devastated.

Adam is one of Brett’s best friends since college. He was there the night we met, and stood with Brett at our wedding. Their relationship stood the test of life and time. And the memories of their adventures brings so much joy to Brett. When we found out we were pregnant with our son, Adam surprised Brett with a UK track suit for our soon-to-be born son. I knew that if I ever needed anything, I could call Adam at anytime, any place, and he would come and help. We are so sorry for loss. The space that Adam leaves in our lives will never be filled.
