Adam C. Taylor, of Brinson, Georgia, was a passionate Firefighter/EMT. He had a heart for God and was always willing to pray or lend an ear. Hunting, fishing, roping cows, and playing the guitar were just a few of his hobbies. He had a smile that could light up any room. At age 11, Adam rode with his older brother on volunteer calls, where he discovered his true calling in life.

At 18, he became an active volunteer firefighter and started his first job with Sylvester Fire Department. A mutual friend/coworker introduced him to the love of his life, Kristin. In 2011, they got married, and he moved to Bainbridge, leaving Sylvester as a lieutenant after four years. He started working for DCFR in 2012, still volunteering on his off time. He also worked a part-time job with Camilla Fire Department.

The couple’s desires were to start a family, so they prayed for four years to conceive. Finally, after much prayer and struggles, they became pregnant with twins! God knew what he was doing. They wanted to have two kids, a boy and a girl, and God gave them their desires. In May 2017, their miracle babies, Conner and Faith, were born, and you couldn’t wipe the smile off Adam’s face. His face would light up as he talked about the babies and their antics. He was thrilled to finally be a daddy. Unbeknownst to him, he only had ten months of pure joy to spend with his new family.

Years back, when Adam was a teenager, after a house fire, a lady firefighter asked him to help roll up hoses. Adam didn’t want to help this particular night. So, being contrary, he wiped ashes from a hose onto his face, as if he rolled up hoses. She never knew otherwise.

Adam was an avid hunter and loved the outdoors. He taught his wife everything he knew about hunting and sat with her until she finally killed her first deer. Now each hunt was an adventure with these two, and you know a woman can’t keep quiet long. Well, Adam would constantly tell her that she had to be really quiet. Then, low and behold, Adam needed a snack and all you could hear was a honey bun wrapper. Just imagine the look on her face when he started tearing into that honey bun.

Words could never truly capture the type of man that Adam was. You just had to know him. And if you knew him, you loved him. Our hearts are forever broken, but Adam lives on in their babies and in our hearts.
