Daniel Robert Adams

Daniel Robert Adams of Erda Utah died peacefully in his sleep in his Provo home the morning of November 2, 2017 at 22 years of age. Daniel was born February 11, 1995 in Salt Lake City Utah.   Dan loved collecting things, eating out, going to movies, and spending time with his brother Jeff.  Dan and his brother were adopted on June 10, 2002 and were sealed to our family in the Salt Lake Temple on July 19, 2002.  

Dan was born with Cornelia De Lange Syndrome.  He taught us more than we ever thought possible about loving and accepting others.  He expanded our view and deepened our love. We are eternally grateful to you Dan. You will be missed.  

Daniel is survived by his parents Robert and Cindy Adams, his brother Jeffery Adams, his sisters Carolyn (Alex), Sharon Renee, Makayla (Jordan), Siera, and 4 adorable nieces. Also his grandparents Deonne Grappendorf, Sharon Adams, Steve & Carolyn Walker, and  Michael Paul & Vida Frieden.  It took a village to care for Daniel and we gratefully recognize the love and support of many many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and dear friends.  We also love and recognize the Rise staff, NES work force, and Daniel’s Chrysalis family who made such a difference to his quality of life and for the friendships he made there.  

Funeral Arrangements are being handled by Kramer Family Funeral Home of West Valley City.  Daniel’s Funeral Service will be held in the Erda Chapel 323 E Erda Way in Erda Utah Monday November 13, at 10:00 AM.  There will be a visitation at 9 a.m. one hour prior to the service. He will be laid to rest in the Stansbury City Cemetery.
