He married his wife of 48 years, Rhoda Grazier in Monte Vista, Colorado on March 18, 1972.
Adrian worked for most of his life as a Mechanic and was very dedicated to his job. One of his favorite past-times was working on cars with his son Kenny. More than anything, Adrian loved spending time with his family and enjoyed the many barbecues, camping trips in the mountains and lake trips for water skiing.
He always found time to spend time with his family. Adrian also enjoyed woodworking and completed several different items for his family.
He was a member of the B.P.O.E. 2456 in Monte Vista, Colorado and held many officer positions throughout the years.
In the most recent years, he traveled all about the western United States in his RV with his wife Rhoda.

He is preceded in death by his parents and one brother David Getz.
Cremation was chosen and a Celebration of Life Gathering will be held at a later date due to current restrictions on gatherings and interstate travel for family.
