Adam Bryant Harrell

Adam Bryant Harrell, 33, of Emporia, Virginia passed away on Thursday, August 3, 2017.  His passing was heartbreaking to those who knew and loved him.  Adam was born on March 8, 1984 in Emporia, Virginia where he was raised on a small farm by two loving parents whom he cared for deeply.  Growing up, he developed a passion for the outdoors.  Adam was the definition of an outdoorsman, spending many days with family and friends hunting, hiking, camping, and fishing.  Adam excelled at athletics, acquiring numerous accolades in football and helped lead his high school football team to a state title.  Adam graduated from Brunswick Academy in 2002 before leaving to study at High Point University in North Carolina, earning a degree in Criminal Justice 2006.  After college Adam started a career in loss prevention culminating in him overseeing more than 80 stores throughout the state.  Perhaps Adam’s most significant moment was when he followed in his father’s footsteps when he married the “rose of his life” in 2010. 

Though Adam will be remembered for his love of the outdoors, he will be best remembered by those who knew him as a “shirt-off-his-back guy,” a steadfast Christian, a faithful and supportive husband, a loving son, and a devoted friend.  The joy and excitement he had for life was contagious as anyone who knew him knew.  His story will live on in each and every person his life touched.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents Nelson and Elsie Harrell; grandfather Tom Jarratt; and grandfather Richard Jones.  He is survived by his grandmother Etta Jarratt; beloved parents, Ricky and Joan Harrell; loving wife and hunting companion, Jo Swartz Harrell along with their unborn child and family dog, Molly; father in-law and mother in-law Mark and Mary Jane Yeattes; uncle Benji Jones; uncle Benji Jarratt and wife Hope; aunt DeEtte Gordon and husband Brent; cousin Eric Jones and wife Brandi, cousin Leslie Sabo and husband Chuck; cousin Courtney Moseley and husband Brian; brother-in-law Mark Yeattes; sister in-law Mary Yeattes; sister in-law Sarah Yeattes, and numerous cousins.

A visitation will be held 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, August 8that Owen Funeral Home in Jarratt, Virginia where the funeral service will be held 2pm on Wednesday, August 9th.  Interment will be private.
