Andrew C. Adams
January 19, 2008 ~ July 26, 2023 (age 15) 15 Years Old
Andrew C. Adams, 15, of Ottawa, passed away on Wednesday, July 26, 2023.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Cremation rites have been entrusted to Ottawa Funeral Home.
Andrew was born January 19, 2008, in Ottawa, IL, the son of Kathleen Scott.
He attended Shepherd Middle School and was a sophomore at Ottawa High School. He enjoyed hanging out with his friends, riding his bike, going fishing, and playing Fortnite. He loved to be with his family. He was the first to volunteer to help any of them out with babysitting or helping in their gardens. He always worked hard. He also loved to drive, since he got his permit, they couldn't get him out of the drivers seat. He had such a personality that he could've been the next Drew Carey. His sense of humor and his infectious smile would light up any room.
He is survived by his mom, Kathleen Scott; his step dad, Tim Kelley; his siblings, Eric Motozapo, Selena (Mitchell) Allen-Motozapo, Alexis Higgins, and Kaylyn Adams; his maternal grandma, Karla (Bray) Higgins; his uncle, Tommy Higgins; his cousins, Tommy, Asia, and Miley Higgins; and his nieces and nephews, JoJo, Louis, and Ameliana Allen.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandpa, Thomas J. Higgins Sr.; and his cousins, Mariah, Damion, and Dakota Higgins.
