Adrian M. Beaver, 27, died August 25, 2012 in Anchorage, Alaska. Adrian was born on June 10, 1985 in Anchorage, Alaska.

A memorial service is scheduled on Saturday, September 8, 2012 with a public visitation at 9 a.m. followed by a service at 10 a.m. at the ChangePoint Church located at 6689 ChangePoint Drive, Anchorage.

Adrian attended Nunaka Valley Elementary, Rogers Park Elementary along with various other schools in the Anchorage area as well as schools in Seattle and Lake Tahoe.

In 2003 Adrian enrolled himself in the Alaska Military Youth Academy and before starting, he donated his beautiful hair to Lock of Love so someone who was sick could benefit. Adrian graduated from the Alaska Military Youth Academy with his High School Diploma. This was a special time for Adrian, he was very happy as were his friends and family of his accomplishment.

Adrian grew up playing on many Anchorage Youth Hockey Teams. He thoroughly enjoyed the sport and team spirit. One of the years he played hockey with the Anchorage Boys Club Bulldog Team, they went undefeated that season.

In 1997 he lived in Lake Tahoe with his father and brother Emilio and together they traveled to San Francisco, Reno, and San Jose. Also, during this time together, they took a trip to Victoria British Columbia so his father could play in a hockey tournament. Once back in Anchorage he lived with his mother.

Adrian was a free spirit and lived the way he wanted to live. He enjoyed so many adventures camping throughout Alaska, boating on Big Lake with his Aunt Cori and Uncle Richard as well as the times spent four wheeling and dirt bike riding at Jim Creek.

Adrian is survived by his only child Jayden Beaver age 7; mother Teresa Ackers; father Emelio Beaver; brother Emilio Beaver; sisters Mikisha Ackers and Teena Mikes; grandfather Michael Dozette and grandmother Liz Beaver along with a very long list of extended family and friends throughout Alaska and the lower 48.

Adrian was preceded in death by his grandmothers Gloria Dozette and Jean Dickson of Anchorage and his grandfather Fiztgerald Beaver of Seattle.

Adrian's beautiful smile dimples, and laughter will never be forgotten and we thank God for giving him to us.

A memorial fund has been set up for Adrian's son, Jayden Beaver, at Wells Fargo for anyone who would like to donate.
