Adrian Anthony was born on March 2, 1996 to Tony Escamilla and Betty Gutierrez Escamilla in Lubbock, Texas. Adrian came into the world determined to live life. He was born with a pulmonary stenosis a heart condition and quickly had to have corrective surgery. He was a fighter and never let his heart issues hold him back from being a loving, caring, and always smiling person. He was a very giving person who always wanted to take care of others whether they were family, friends, or strangers. His smile was one that would light up the room as he walked in and change the mood of everyone around with his contagious laughter. He always had a mischievous look in his eyes, as if he was up to something, He had a cleaver sarcastic wit that kept everyone on their toes. He was not afraid to take chances to explore new adventures or opportunities. He was also very grateful for his family and friends and we were blessed to have had him in our lives. We will miss Adrian extremely and long for the moment we will reunite with him again.
