Adam Andrew Pysz

Newport, N.H. — Adam Andrew Pysz, 17, of Reed Farm Road died Friday, Nov. 16, 2012, from injuries sustained when struck trying to move a deer from the road on RT12 in Charlestown, N.H.

Adam was born in Lebanon, N.H. on July 8, 1995, son of Lorraine (Stacy) and Andrew E. Pysz. He was baptized at St. Patrick’s Church living in Newport all his life and looked forward to graduating with the Newport High School Class of 2013. His plans after that were to take off a year, live in California and then enter military service. Adam enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, go-kart racing, playing pool and loved welding shop at school. He once said that he “was a man of few words,” and that rang true to his character. He truly cared for all animal life and raised a countless variety of creatures in and around the house. Family and friends were most important to him with several close friends that were like brothers to him.

He is survived by his mother, Lorraine Padova and her husband, Michael, his father, Andrew E. Pysz and his wife, Suzanne; paternal grandmother, Ellen Pysz; maternal grandparents, Harry and Avis Stacy; maternal step-grandparents, Annie Padova and Jerry Padova; two sisters, Kennedy Elizabeth and Anna Evans Pysz; a step-brother, Michael Keith Padova; two aunts, Sandra Carleton and Susan Sanderson and her husband, Mike, all of Newport; and several cousins. He was pre-deceased by a brother, Tyler Maryn and his paternal grandfather, Eugene Pysz.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012, at St. Patrick’s Church, 32 Beech Street in Newport. Fr. Robert Biron as celebrant. Burial will follow at St. Patrick’s Cemetery. A reception will then be held at the Newport Moose Club.
