Adam’s Mom and Dad, Gary and Sandy Brophy were blessed and proud parents of Adam who was born June 15, 1982. Buffalo was his home where he grew up and enjoyed sports, scouting, trips out west, summers at the cabin, friends and family. He graduated from Buffalo High School in 2001.

While attending SCSU in 2005 he met the love of his life Mackenzie Brophy at the SCSU rock climbing wall. They were avid rock climbers, fell deeply in love and married in 2006. He was a humble, selfless, serving and loving Husband. Together they had three beautiful children Ava Joy, Eli Adam and Noah Edward. He put his family above everything else. He was also a committed employee at Anderson Trucking Service.

Most importantly Adam was a child of God. He made a decision to follow Jesus. He loved and served Him well. Even though Adam suffered these past few years he lived by this scripture; “consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trails of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:1-4

In addition to his family Adam was loved by many. Some of those closer to him were brother, Christopher Brophy and his son Jaxson, his in-laws Julie (Madre) and Leif (Pa) Spore. Sister in law Jocelyn (Kelly Throne) Spore, nephew Kaiden Throne, Brother in Law Caleb Spore. Loving grandparents, Evelyn Brophy, Marie Wegler, Harlan and LuLu Darkenwald and Ruth Spore.

Adam is preceded in death by his grandfathers, Edward Brophy, Richard Wegler and Clayton Spore.
