Justin Wayne Adams, 31, of Kansas City, Missouri, died February 22, 2013 as a result of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident which occurred just west of Wichita, Kansas. He was born September 22, 1981 in Kansas City, the son of John S. and Mary Carol (Amen) Adams. He graduated from Lee’s Summit High School and attended Penn Valley Community College where he studied art and photography.
Justin was a creative and artistic soul, with a passion for traveling, visiting Italy several times as well as most of the 50 states, often with his beloved Siberian Huskies, Kade and Athena. Justin had a passion for art and sold his photographs at festivals around the country. In keeping with Justin’s loving and generous spirit, he gave in death, as an organ donor, as he did in life.
