A Time to be Born.
Adam Bryce Crewell was born February 7, 1977, in Columbia, South Carolina to Elease Scott Crewell and Alonzo Crewell. Adam, affectionately known as “Gap” and “Life of the Party” had a heart of pure gold. He retired to his Heavenly home on Thursday, October 7, 2021.
A Time to Live.
At an early age, Adam was baptized at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Eastover, South Carolina. He sang for the Lord along with his siblings on Sunday mornings. He was an active member in Sunday School and often attended several church services on Sunday mornings with his grandmother.
Adam was a man of strength, astounding wisdom, and abounding love for his family and friends. He touched the hearts and minds of many. Adam had a true spirit that compelled you to gravitate towards him. His great sense of humor, strong will, and eagerness to assist were some of his greatest attributes. Like his grandfather, Adam was also a jack of all trades. There was never a challenge that he was willing to turn down. Adam was truly confident and comfortable in his skin. He yearned for everyone around him to find solace in themselves. In addition, Adam strived to be the best version of himself and often pushed those around him to be the best versions of themselves.
Adam was a proud product of Richland County School District One. He attended Crane Creek Elementary School and Alcorn Middle School. He was a proud 1995 graduate of the mighty Eau Claire High School. Adam made a profound impact on the athletic department at Eau Claire. He was a prominent member of the Junior Varsity Basketball Team where he won his first championship ring in 1993. He later became a member of the Varsity Basketball Team. The team went on to win back-to-back State Championships in 1994 and 1995.
Adam had a profound love for baseball. His baseball career started at an early age playing t-ball, minor league, pony league and major league baseball in the community park. That early love for the sport laid the foundation for greatness. He became a standout member of the baseball team at Eau Claire. Adam was one of the best first basemen to grace the fields of Eau Claire. He attracted the attention of several recruitment scouts early in his career. He received an in-hand offer from the Pittsburgh Pirates, but God had other plans for Adam.
Adam took great pride in how he presented himself to the world. That sense of pride did not go unnoticed. Adam won the superlative “best dressed” his senior year.
Adam married his high school sweetheart, Raven, in May 2004. They were together for 27 years or as they would both say, “their entire adult lives”. He was the proud father of four children and proud grandfather of two beautiful little girls.
Adam attended Benedict College and later went on to join the work force. He was employed by Orkin, Dillards, and The Department of Corrections. In addition, he spent a long tenure of his professional career with Just Care, Inc. where he formed life-long friendships. Adam later went on to obtain his commercial driver’s license. Shortly afterwards, he went on to haul freight for Senn Freight Lines, LLC. Adam recently stepped out on faith to pursue a long-term goal of entrepreneurship. He founded Triple 8 Freight, LLC, where he served as proud owner and operator. Adam loved being on the road. He recently started referring to himself as a “walking navigation system”. He would often jokingly boast about his professional driving skills. He was adamant about keeping freight moving. He was a loyal carrier for 2Berry Transportation and Cardinal Logistics. The road will truly never be the same without him.
Adam enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, lounging around the house, riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, and traveling in his leisure time.
