Adrian Malik Rhoades was born October 18, 1996 in Norfolk, VA to his mother Eileen Rhoades. He unfortunately departed this world on Saturday October 19, 2019 while celebrating his 23rd Birthday. He was a graduate of Lake Taylor High School Class of 2016. He then attended Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) where he became a certified Welder earning his Associate Degree in Occupational Science Maritime Welding Technology.

Adrian went by the nickname “ADOG” or as the ladies would say ‘Big Daddy Adrian”. He enjoyed hanging out with his friends, playing his video games and joking people. He was known for calling somebody either ugly, fat or dirty because he thought he was oh so handsome. Adrian always stayed in the latest fashion from head to toe. He was always an independent person because in his mind he was a “savage”. He was loving and affectionate would never let you leave his presence without him getting a kiss and hug no matter how hard you push, kicked, scream or threaten him and if he ever felt disrespected by anyone he was always ready to defend himself and quick to say “who you talking to”.

Adrian was a loving grandchild, nephew, son, brother, uncle, friend and a soon-to-be loving father to his unborn child. His memories will be cherished by his Grandmother: Odell Dillard, Mother: Eileen Rhoades, Siblings: Elaine Rhoades, Micah Jordan Jr., Corey Jordan, Jonathan Jordan, Jayla Riddick, Porsha Jordan, Rayvon Riddick and Raymon Riddick, Aunts/Uncles: Carrie Rhoades-Grice (Melvin Grice), Keaushell Rhoades-Farrow (Brian Farrow) and William Rhoades (LaRoyce Hankins), Nieces/Nephews: Naudia Stallings, Legacy Brown, Jonathan Jordan Jr., and Kyro Brown followed by Great Aunts/Uncles, Stepparents, Stepbrothers/Sisters and a host of cousins and friends who loved him endlessly.
