Adam Fewster

Adam Lee Fewster, 46, passed away peacefully on April 19, 2024, surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with glioblastoma.

Adam was born in Rock Hill, South Carolina on October 6, 1977, which is where he spent his childhood and teenage years before moving to Athens to attend to the University of Georgia in 1997. From an early age, Adam was known as a funny, kind and outgoing person with a smile that could melt hearts. He was easy to love. An exceptional and versatile athlete he was, and always a sharp dresser, especially proud to wear the Vineyard Vines brand so dear to him. One could say he had swag, yet he was notorious for being sockless his entire life. He was handsome but even more beautiful on the inside. Many classmates considered him the “Alpha” of the group.

During high school at Northwestern, Adam continued his love of sports where he was the quarterback for Northwestern’s football team and the point guard for their basketball team. In Athens, Adam was a member of Sigma Nu fraternity and loved attending college football games in the fall and going on spring breaks to Lake Tahoe. After college, Adam met Molly Hunter in Charlotte, North Carolina and they later married in Pinehurst on July 26, 2008. In 2011, they welcomed their only daughter, Hunter Elizabeth Fewster, and moved to New Canaan, Connecticut in 2013 where Adam worked with Vineyard Vines. Adam embodied the vv motto that “everyday should feel this good.” His personality, passion and work ethic were exemplary. His teammates and customers (Barstool Sports, The Kentucky Derby, America’s Cup, the Red Sox Management and everyone in between) loved and respected Adam so much.

Adam had a warm, inviting demeanor, he loved to be around people; he was always comfortable and happiest when surrounded by family and friends. A friendly Southern transplant in New England, he was well known around New Canaan and loved walking around town and meeting new people with his dog, Charlie, and most recently, his big black lab, Teddy. He had a huge heart and loved dogs, especially Baylor, his beloved Weimaraner whose tag he still kept with him on his key chain.

Hunter, his daughter, was the absolute light of his life and Adam spent many weekends on the sports fields supporting Hunter and her athletic endeavors, including coaching her teams to several flag football championships. Adam was a huge fan of New Canaan sports and loved taking his family to football games and sporting events in the community, and especially loved to play basketball with his nephew, Jackson. Adam had a love of travel and treasured his family vacations to Sea Island, Pawley’s Island SC, and trips to Italy. He loved fiercely, whether it was his faith, beautiful family, close knit friends, GA “Dawgs”, sporty vintage cars, coaching, golfing or fishing. He was “All In” when it came to matters of the heart.

A devoted and loving husband, he and Molly were married for 16 years and they attended Saint Mark’s Episcopal Church, which was an important part of their life. It was his faith that allowed him to live life fearlessly and full of hope. Adam’s optimism and beautiful perspective throughout his life were cherished by everyone that was lucky enough to call him a friend. We celebrate his life here on earth and take comfort in knowing that we will be reunited in heaven.

Adam was preceded in death by his father, James Francis Fewster III. He is survived by his wife, Molly Hunter Fewster and his daughter, Hunter Elizabeth Fewster of New Canaan CT; his mother, Geraldine (Gerri) Levy Fewster of Charlotte NC; his brother James (Butch) Creighton Fewster and Allison Fewster sister-in-law of York SC; nephew Jackson Cole Fewster and niece Charley Ann Fewster of York SC; his uncle, Martin B.
