Adam Marton Teters
June 7, 2000 – February 27, 2021
Adam is love. Adam is music. He was born into immense, fathomless love and gave it back to his family and friends without reserve. His recreational drug use proved fatal when he fell victim to the manipulated street drugs that continue to take the lives of countless people, both locally and around the country.
From his earliest days, Adam touched so many with his wisdom, his sensitivity, his sweetness. Although he often struggled to understand and communicate what he felt—what he knew—not a day went by when he was not deeply connected to himself and others.
Eight and ten years younger than his brother and sister, Ben and Joanna, he grew up surrounded by people of all ages who were as utterly taken by him as he was with them. He took it all in. Adam is a searcher, with strong, open arms and an open mind for new adventures, new food and experiences—whether in the woods, fishing, navigating New York City or traveling to new countries. He knows no limitations now.
Beyond his family and friends, music was his life. It was his life force and his tether. It was the thing he absorbed, created and shared most effortlessly, most naturally, and the thing he worked hardest at every day.The songs he created and sent into the world were received with such joy and respect,and he was overjoyed to collaborate and share his gifts with others, far and wide.From his earliest days, whether on the guitar, bass or drums, his musical gifts were astonishing and undeniable. Tragically, he knew of too many musicians whose lives were also cut too short and their loss cut him deeply. They are rejoicing to have a deep, God-given talent like Adam’s to play with now.
We in the world are devastated but know beyond a doubt that the universe is welcoming back a deep soul that was ours for too short a time. We also know that he is now being tightly held by his ancestors and others we love, including his grandparents, Edwin and Joan Marton, Clyde and Helen Teters, Mariano Casem; his aunt, Teri Leichenger; and his soul sister in life, Rebecca Lynch.
He has left us physically, but our hearts are indelibly and forever his: Betty Marton, Jerry, Ben, Joanna Teters and Jose Lopez; his beloved aunts and uncles, David, Tom, Carol, Danit, Michael and Nancy; his cousins Julia, Sylvia, Bella, Chris and Charlie; Sonia, Clara, Oliver; Brian, Julia and Jack. Friends near and far are heartbroken and will carry his light forward.
