Edward Adam Hatton, 43, of Lexington, Kentucky passed away unexpectedly at his home on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. 

Adam was born in Mount Sterling, Kentucky on May 31, 1976 to Larry and Margaret Hatton. He spent his childhood growing up on Dairy, Tobacco, and Horse Farms in Central Kentucky.  He spent his teenage and young adult years in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Adam was a proud graduate of Fort Defiance High School in Fort Defiance, Virginia. He also graduated from Virginia Tech after studying Engineering and Ag Business. 

Upon graduation, Adam began a career with Big Ass Fans. He served the company in a variety of management roles, quickly becoming a well-respected example of determination and solid work ethic. Many people relied on Adam for a down-to-earth, common sense approach to any problem. Adam was a proud member of this team and valued the relationships that he built during his time with the company.

Adam was a lifelong farmer and developed his solid work ethic from working with his father from an early age. He was an animal lover, another attribute developed from his life on the farm. He loved horseback riding on the trails in the George Washington National Park and participated in Jousting Tournaments as well. Later in life, Adam developed a love for ATV trail riding, often taking weekend trips with his family to Tennessee. 

Adam was a devoted family man. His willingness to help and mentor created a special bond between him and his nieces Taylor and Sydney Hatton. While his approach came across as too direct for some, many more will value his opinion and outlook for the rest of their lives. 

He is survived by his fiance, Kara Harman; mother, Margaret Sams Hatton; sisters, Carol Hatton and Jill Hurt (Jason Hurt); brother, Glenn Hatton; nieces and nephew, Taylor and Sydney Hatton, Katie Newby, and Michael, Carolyn, and Sophia Hurt; and grandmother, Maggie Hatton. 

He is preceded in death by his father, Larry Hatton; brother, Jason Hatton; grandparents Edward Hatton and Walter and Mary Sams.

He truly loved Boomer, Josie, and Bean. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Lexington Humane Society. Per Adam’s wishes, there will be no services at this time.
