Adam was born in Ft. Wayne, Indiana on December 31, 1984. He was subsequently baptized on January 13, 1985 and later confirmed on May 16, 1999. He graduated from Dawson County High School and went on to receive an Associates Degree from Dawson Community College and a Bachelor’s of History Degree from The University of Montana.
The love and loyalty Adam demonstrated to his family and friends was matched only by his passion for Star Wars…and possibly the San Francisco 49ers. He touched the lives of many, though when asked, he spoke humbly about the impact he had on those he came in contact with. He really enjoyed floating the river, watching football and playing cribbage with his favorite partner, Jessi Freeman (as he pointed out, she was the only one who could offer him a challenge). He had been known to debate the finer points of Star Wars, eat a jar of pickles in a single sitting and take his own bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing with him to any restaurant he went. This trait quickly earned him the unofficial nickname of “Mad-eye Moody.”
Adam had an infectious smile, a distinguished laugh and the innate ability to step in as mediator, defusing any situation (“I love you, I love you, I love you…”).
We are not meant to know the mind of God, but there is no doubt that He is using Adam’s death to His glory. Adam was born last into our family and was the first to lead the way to be with our Lord.
“The last will be first, and the first will be last” – Matthew 20:16
Adam is survived by his parents, Howard and Jo Schreibeis; Sisters, Michelle (John) Rice and Kristy (Bob) Schnetter; Brothers, Stephen (Charity) Schreibeis and Eric (Tracy) Schreibeis; Grandparents, Floreen Schreibeis and Betty Heinrich; Girlfriend, Jessi Freeman; and numerous nieces and nephews.
We love you Adam!
