"He was a pure soul with a huge heart and loving testimony of Jesus Christ. Dear Adam, we will love you forever," wrote Steven Keele after Adam Renik's death on his birthday this Monday.
A Payson teenager died while walking to school Monday when he was hit by two cars.
Adam Renik was well-known in his Payson neighborhood and was an active member of his LDS Church ward. An emotional Carrie Peacock said Adam was at her house Sunday collecting fast offerings for the church.
"He was saying how excited he was to turn 14 so he could be his dad's companion to go home teaching. I mean, he was just devoted and kind and an amazing kid," Peacock said while wiping away tears.
