Class of 1969

Posted on: 10/24/2018 11:24:01 AM

James Adrian Poindexter POINDEXTER JAMES ADRIAN Age 65, of Monroeville, was called home to rest with the Lord surrounded by his devoted wife, loving family, and friends on January 1, 2017, at Forbes Regional Hospital. Adrian gave his life to Christ 22 years ago. His devotion to his family and firm belief in God supported him and provided peace during a brief illness. Mr. Poindexter was born on November 21, 1951, in Wilmerding to James Arthur Poindexter and Geneva Wright and resided in the Monroeville area for most of his life. After the death of his mother when he was a toddler, Adrian was raised by his maternal grandparents, Theodore and Alberta Wright, but he continued to spend as much time as possible with his father. Immediately following his graduation from Gateway High School in Monroeville, Adrian joined the United States Air Force and served a three-year tour of duty in Vietnam. He was honorably discharged in 1972. Adrian's passion for life and adventure could always be seen through the inquisitive way he envisioned the world. He supported his curiosity with his love of NASCAR, boating, motorcycling, rollercoaster riding, and traveling, but his greatest passion was photography and this was evident as he built a very successful business, AP (Almost Perfect) Photography. Adrian had a way of capturing love and beauty through his lens. He was well known throughout the Pittsburgh region as a professional photographer who specialized in weddings, educational fundraisers, family reunions, proms, and cabarets. For almost two decades, he served as the official photographer for Hightower Scholars, Inc. and many Narcotics Anonymous regional, local, and state chapter conferences and conventions. For 20 years, Mr. Poindexter worked for the Borough of Monroeville. In January 2016, he retired and began working for Elite Coach Limousine, Inc. He was a frequently requested driver because of his warm and inviting personality, and a smile that lit up the room.
