He graduated from North high and worked for Newman Janitorial for years before working for the Schwan Food Company in Salina, Kanas working third shift. Adrian had a love and talent for basketball and played during his high school years.

He had a great sense of humor, loved to play practical jokes on people and would flash his famous grin that he passed down to his children. 

Adrian was baptized at the age of twelve and was very spiritual throughout his life.
