Adam Wayne Vittoria

Adam Wayne Vittoria was loved by many people. He was born December 23, 1970 in the city of Lancaster, CA to his parents Glenda and John Vittoria. For most of Adam’s childhood his family resided in Kernville, CA; this is where him and his three brothers, Scott, Josh, and Joesph grew up. In 1979 his family moved to Oxnard, CA. When he was a young adult he met his soon to be wife, Melissa. Later they had their first child and then were married. After some time they had three more children. Adam’s favorite past time was fishing, he loved to fish at the lake, river or to go deep sea fishing off of the Channel Islands. If you ask his nieces and nephews they will say that he took pride in everything he cooked and their favorite was his spaghetti. His recipe is secret still to this day. Many around the Kern River Valley know Adam for his involvement in AYSO and reffing high school soccer. He supported youth football and little league, he did this as his boys grew up and he also coached volleyball and subbed for security at Kern Valley High. Everyone that saw him was always greeted with a warm smile and hug and a genuine conversation. He had a great sense of humor, he always tried to make others laugh. One thing Adam loved was not only to watch movies, new and the classics like John Wayne’s; was to quote them and to quiz your knowledge of movies, “you’re killing smalls” “we’re burning daylight” “it’s called a lance, hello” “stay golden pony boy” “all I see is stars. And you will see a lot more of them if you don’t get a move on” Adam was always very giving to those in need. Adam dedicated his life to Jehovah in 2016. He instilled his faith and love for the truth in his children and family. His favorite scripture and future promise was Isaiah 65:21,22. He loved Family Dinners with his sister in-laws family on Sunday, he often invited others to join, it brought him comfort knowing everyone was under one roof. He worked as a second generation painter and took much pride in his work until he was no longer able to so, he got his dream job as lead painter at CSUB in 2022. Adam passed away June 21, 2024 at home, after a year long battle of stage 4 liver + bile cancer. He was preceded in death by his brother Scott Vittoria. He is survived by his wife Melissa Vittoria of 30 years, his children Danica, Brandon, Devon, and Mia. “It’s not how you are buried. It’s how you were remembered.”
