Adam was born July 9, 1999 at Knoxville, TN to Conrad and Starla (Hawk) McNutt. He received his early education in Knoxville, before moving to Scottsbluff in 2016 and graduating from Scottsbluff High School with the Class of 2018. He was enrolled at WNCC to start in January of 2020. For the past 3 years, Adam was proud to have worked as a cook at the Kentucky Fried Chicken in Scottsbluff. He was a great employee and was a very hard worker; all his co-workers adored him. He had a big heart and made a big impact on anyone he came across in his short lifetime. He always had a smile on his face and if you said he couldn’t do it he would prove you wrong and get it done. He loved football and was the biggest Tennessee Volunteers fan (GO VOLS!). He always had everyone’s back. If you knew Adam it was like knowing the President. He touched many lives and left behind many memories. He was an active member of the Lakota Lutheran/Intercultural Church.
