Adrian Jay Carter

January 21, 1994 ~ October 18, 2019 (age 25)


Adrian Jay Carter, 25, of Union, passed away on October 18, 2019, in Springfield, Missouri. He was born on January 21, 1994, in St. Louis to Carmala Obenauer. Adrian was an artistic and gentle soul who always bent over backwards to help those around him. As a child, he created lasting memories of fishing with his step-father and long weekend nights of camping with his grandfather and getting into mischief alongside his cousins. Adrian made his own soundtrack to life and enjoyed the musical playlists that accompanied him always. Adrian will be dearly missed by all his family and friends, but the memories created and his carefully drawn ornate and detailed graffiti and fantasy style artwork will be cherished forever.


A Funeral Service will be held at 11 am on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, at Nieburg-Vitt, Miller Funeral Home, 1206 Jefferson St., Washington, Missouri. Interment will follow at St. Peter’s Cemetery.
