Adrian John Frank Poirier, 25, passed away on May 6 at his home in Rock Springs from complications of a long-term illness.  

He was born on April 3, 1998 in Rock Springs, the son of Christian Douglas Poirier and Shawn Marie Surber. 

Adrian attended schools in Green River and graduated from Expedition Academy with the class of 2018.
