Hayden Arthur Adams, age 14, of Joplin, passed away on Sunday, May 23, 2021. Hayden was born on December 7, 2006 in St. Louis, Missouri.
Hayden enjoyed doing what most 14-year-old boys do, playing video games, building things with Legos, archery, boy scouts and spending time with his animals. He enjoyed spending time outdoors, whether it was camping, fishing, swinging with his sister, jumping on the trampoline or riding bikes. Most importantly he had a deep love for God and his family. He cherished his time we would spend making memories or just hanging out on the couch.
Hayden touched many lives in his short 14 years. He had the biggest smile and best hugs. He loved so many and was loved by so many more. He had an energy that with even one encounter with him, you would remember for life.
He will continue to stay with us through memories and the laughs he forced us to endure even when we didn’t want to. He is everywhere, in all our lives. He will live on through us. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
He leaves behind his mother, Jenny Tyler, and step-dad, Heath; his father, Tyson Adams; sister, Natalie Adams, and brother, Quinton Tyler; grandparents, Arthur Bosworth, Jan Stevens, Rick Stevens, and Doug and Crystel Adams; Aunts and Uncles, Brittany and Dustin Miller, and Megan and James Pace; great grandparents, Alice and Keith Adams, and Janice and John Coady; plus, cousins, family and friends.
Memorial services will be held on Friday, June 4, 2021 at 1:00pm at the Carterville Christian Church in Carterville. Committal of ashes will follow at Ozark Memorial Park Cemetery in Joplin. Memorial contributions may be made to the St. Louis Children’s Hospital or to the American Heart Association in memory of Hayden and may be entrusted to the mortuary.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Parker Mortuary, Joplin.
