Forever remembered by his infectious smile and servant’s heart, William Adam Wooten went to be with Jesus on December 24, 2020, at the age of 37.

Adam made a statement when he came into this world weighing 10 pounds, 4 ounces on May 24, 1983. He was born in Iredell County and was the son of Ronnie and Ann Wooten of Statesville. He was a graduate of North Iredell High School, Mitchell Community College and Gardner-Webb University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in science. He was a first-degree black belt, an accomplishment he was most proud of at an early age. He married Erin Parker Wooten and together they had two daughters, Kinsley Mae Wooten and Abigail Quinn Wooten.

During his free time, he enjoyed woodworking and hanging out with friends and family. He was well known for his impressive storytelling and ability to remember movie lines! He followed in his dad’s footsteps, working for EnergyUnited in the propane division, and was recently promoted to senior account manager at Thompson Gas. But many will remember his charming personality as a server at Carolina BBQ, Logan’s and Twisted Oak, whether you had the pleasure of having him entertain your table while taking your order or hanging out with you after the place closed.

In addition to his parents and wife, Adam is survived by two daughters, Kinsley Mae Wooten and Abigail Quinn Wooten; two sisters, Melani W. McCulloch (Matt) of Cornelius, Stephanie W, Zboyovski (James) of Raleigh; three nephews, Maximus and Mylo McCulloch, and Will Zboyovski; one niece, Eva Zboyovski; maternal grandmother, Oleatha Goodin; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Graveside funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, December 28, 2020, at Hams Grove Baptist Church Cemetery with Rev. James Bumgarner officiating. Adam will lie in state at Hams Grove Baptist Church from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Monday.

Adam’s ability to light up a room coupled with his witty humor and charismatic personality made him loved by all who had the pleasure of meeting him. Making others feel like the most important person in the room was a genuine talent. His light was bright, addicting and one of a kind. His presence will truly be missed!

  5. My sincerest condolences on the passing of Adam (Mr. Wooten) as I was proud to call him every night in class. It was a pleasure to have him in class and teach him. I remember how he glowed the night he got his black belt and how he represented the meaning of a black belt in his life. He will be missed and remembered always.
