Adrian graduated from Hazelwood Central High School in 2003 and continued his education by completing several certifications in several degrees of study. Adrian's enduring love for life and purpose transcended his love for family and friends. The pursuit of entrepreneurship began at an early age by watching his Grandpa Lawrence Culpepper, Sr. He told his Grandpa just four weeks ago, because of him he wanted to emulate him and own his own business one day and admired the way he took care of his family. This admiration resulted in Adrian becoming an accomplished HVAC Tech. He's hurdled many accolades of which was the beginning of his spiritual journey several years ago which resulted in family worship and attending conventions and talks by Jehovah's Witnesses. Adrian grew into a very determined, loving and kind hearted young man whose generosity has been felt by many. He had so much to live for and so much yet to do. This pursuit was cut short on January 25, 2017 at 10 p.m. at the early age of 31.
