I didn't know Brian, but work as a vendor with his stepfather David and mom Valley. I'm so sorry for the loss and will keep you all in my prayers. I never understand why things happen like this. I just can't help but think he is in a much better place. So good that he will never feel your pain or see your life issues as he looks down. Bless you all, I'm sorry.
Brian Jr came into the Holt's life like a welcome whirlwind. I knew at the moment I met Brian he is special. Brian captured my heart and I knew he was good for Lainey. I belive that Brian and Lainey were destined to come together, so both could experience love, before sweet Brian left us. Brian always had an iinfectious smile and his blue eyes were always smiling too! Forever in our heart, we will always love you Brian Jr.
I didn't know Jr. as well as most of you, but you didn't have to know him well to feel like you did! My daughter loved him from the minute she met him, and I don't mind saying, he was definitely one of my favorites of Jamie's friends. He once told me that I was the "coolest wife" of all of his friends, but I have no doubt that he told them all that! He WAS always happy, always smiling, and always ALWAYS fun to be around! He asked Ashlyn one time what the song of the week was when we were all out at Woodlawn, and it happened to be "All I do is win" by DJ Khaled which was her response. Of coarse he started singing it.. Part of the lyrics in that song are "everybody hands go up.. And they stay there, and they stay there" Well, EVERY time we saw him after that, he would either say "and they stay there" or "where do your hands stay?" waiting on the response of "and they stay there" (singing of coarse) and we all thought it was so funny and would chime right in singing with him! Whenever we hear that song, we think of Jr. and always will! It is so true that he always lived with his glass half full and I totally agree with his moms thoughts, "everyone should try to live like Brian Jr. did" I know from now on, I sure will try to!!!
I think I speak for everyone when I say..there isn't a bad word to be said about Brian..he was always a sweetheart and always a gentlemen. We laughed until we cried when we were with him. A true joy to be around.
About 4 years ago I got a phone call from someone who I consider my best friend from my time in the Marine Corps. He told me that a very good friend of his was gonna be in my area and to take good care of em. I figured any friend of Michael's is a good friend of mine. Met his buddy in the parking lot of the apartment complex and offered Brian a room. Started to bullshit with Brian and noticed fairly quick that he knew just about everything stupid I ever did in the service thanks to my good fiend Omohundro. Brian Adams was not only a good guy to hang out with, he was just flat out a good man. A good man that obviously came from a great upbringing of family and friends. He even paid a plane ticket for me to show up at Michael's birthday several months after he moved out knowing damn well it really didn't cost me a dime for him to live with me. I'm sure glad I took him up on it because I had a chance to see how great his friends and family really are. Never been treated better by a bunch of folks I never met. About a week ago I got a call from Michael and it was a bad one. Brian Adams has passed away. A young man well before his time. A good friend and I'm really gonna miss him. Take care Junior!!!
Note from Jamey Parker Samuelson about this event:
What a sweet post, Ben. Just another story of how sweet and thoughtful our Junior was. He wanted Michael to be with his best friend on his birthday. We were all so excited and waited in anticipation to see Michaels face when you came around the corner. What a memorable birthday for Michael! Junior was in tears when y'all hugged. Just shows what a wonderful human being Junior was. With out fail, my heart aches every day for him.
When Michael O. saw Ben and they hugged, Junior was bawling. He was so thoughtful. Junior was texting me on the way home from getting Ben, giving me play by play on where they were. "Were in Van Alstyne" "pulling in to Woodlawn" "coming in the back door". It was a very moving moment.
There are no words that are adequate at a time like this... This is absolutely devastating and Valley, with our similar lives of having sons at such a young age, I can't get you off my mind and can only imagine the aching in your heart...I pray you can find some solace over time... We have always considered Brian one of our "kids" and cherish SO MANY great memories of him and Josh growing up in Foster City and even though none of us have seen each other recently, Brian would text me regularly to keep me updated. in fact last week to show me the early snow in Texas and his newly grown "beard". The most touching was every Mother's Day, without fail, he would either call or text me to wish me a happy day...always made me smile... I know I speak on behalf of the entire Bent/Zerbonia clan and especially Josh, who is so so sad...that you all raised quite an amazing young man, with and infectious smile and a zest for life, he will be missed...and truly our lives are better for having known him. With much love Aileen
I miss your smiling face. It saddens me that I will have to wait til it's my time to go before I will see you again. I love you Lil fella and will see you on the flip side! I know you're up there playing golf with papa!
Brian Adams, Jr. was the definition of being a kind human being. Every time I saw him, whether it was weeks, months, or a year, he acted like we had just seen each other the day before. He would smile, asked me how I was doing, remembered my son's name, and would ask how my golf game was going. He was a kind soul and always made people feel special. I cannot believe he's gone. My heart hurts and my prayers are with your family and loved ones. He was a good friend and will be missed greatly.
You were the best of us on the golf course...your talent always amazed me...but your kind and friendly spirit was what I will remember most about you...I enjoyed every time i got to play with u on the course...And every time I had a beer with u off of it..I will miss laughing with u and listening to your off the wall jokes...u were one of the all time good guys...Jr I will miss u buddy
Brian Adams Sr.
Brian jr. Was my pride and joy. We were so much alike in every way. I never knew I could love another man as much as I loved him. But he was my Son. I did everything I could do for him. He never knew I prayed for him. I don't think my wife ( Jessie) knew. There are no words I can say for how he will be missed. Michael O. brought a lot of pictures by that I had never seen. Junior had one happy life. So much joy in his face. Thank you Michael. There will be a time when we all will get together again. But for now, Rest In Peace
As we mourn the loss of my amazing, sweet, kind hearted cousin, I must say that I'm grateful for a family who always chose for everyone to be together for each holiday and life event. I can't remember a time we missed unless we were out of town and couldn't be there. It's a shame when people take their own family for granted.
It was a nostalgic night at Rendezvous Bar And-Grill. We miss you Brian Adams so much! Here is another pic from that fun afternoon with Junior.

Today is a day to give thanks, and I couldn't be more blessed to be able to say I had a friend named Brian Adams. Junior had a heart of gold, and like many people have already said... He was one of the best people you'd ever meet. He always made you feel important and know that he cared about you. He was a best friend of my brother's and like a second son to my dad. He always kept us on our toes and ALWAYS had us laughing. He had a love for children like no one else. Kids LOVED their junebug and he loved them. He wanted nothing more than to have a family of his own and marry the girl of his dreams. The last time he was at WCC he was not shy in saying how happy he was and how excited he was for the future with his Lainey. He was a GREAT man and we will never forget him and always cherish the memories we have. We sure will miss you Junior, and we will be drinking lots of mimosas for you this thanksgiving! We all love you.
My nephew Brian Adams -Little Fella has passed away this morning. Please give family time to grieve. Thanks to all for your prayers.

Words cannot express how much I miss him. Always thought I'd see him again sometime soon, now I guess I will see him on the other side. My prayers go out to his family, his girlfriend. I love you forever Brian Adams, you will always be my ULTIMATE FAVORITE next door neighbor.

May we all give thanks for having been blessed by knowing you and take comfort in knowing that all though you were taken much to early in your young life, the life you live now in the presence of our God and father is so much more than we can even begin to imagine. God bless your family and many close friends.

Valley, I have frozen in my mind the constant laughter and just plain fun silliness of childhood as I watched Brian and Kelly play together as children. So many of us were blessed with his happy and contagious spirit and special smile that blessed everyone he met, as a child and asd adult too!! I am thankful and I know many others were too to be blessed with Brian in our lives!. Love you!
To the family and friends of Brian Adams... He has touched the lives of so many. He never saw me w out me telling me just how much he thought of Austin and loved him, and Landrey Lou.... Lauren Sims! It's sickening to watch these grown men be brought to their knees from sadness of their best buddy! Always smiling and always had something to say! God bless this family and his guys as they say goodbye to him!
As we look through our books and pull out the memories we will ALWAYS miss you!! Our hearts our hurting & still trying to grasp you leaving us on earth & understanding Gods plan!!!! Save us 4 seats when we meet again!!!! YOU
Saddened by the tragic passing of a great friend and teammate Brian Adams. Gonna miss you B.A.Jr.
Kelly Bowman Billington
I have just been speechless...what an amazing soul you are. I will always remember "La Bamba," Brian Regan, Karaoke, Golfing at TPC and a TON of laughs! I love you so much! RIP! Prayers for my sweet family. Love and miss u all! Xoxo RIP Brian Adams!
I moved to Sherman on 02-27-2008. I met Brian Adams Jr. less than a month later. The night I met him I was basically tagging along with him and a few of his life long buddies and he suggested I come to the next hang out spot to have a beer. That dude went OUT OF HIS WAY to make me feel welcome that night, when most everyone else was kind of acting like who is the new guy that no one knows. I recall him taking the time to sit and conversate with me because he knew that I was new in town and didn't know 99% of the people who were there. He also introduced me to several of his friends that night because it was obviously important to him that I have a good time. That was almost 7 years ago and I remember it like it was yesterday.
Since that night EVERYTIME I SAW HIM (at Bob Utter Ford, Vous, Cellerman's, Limits, Walmart etc...) we greeted each other with a hand shake and/or man hug. I could go 6 months without seeing him but when I did that was the greeting EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!
In a world where violence, hatred and racism sometimes plague our society Brian Adams Jr. was a breath of fresh air, a different type of human being who made the world a better place. I HOPE AND PRAY THAT MY CHILDREN TREAT PEOPLE HOW Brian Adams Jr. treated me EVERYTIME I SAW HIM!! The world lost a truly nice guy.
REST IN PEACE BRIAN ADAMS JR.
