Adam Robert Dreeszen, 27, a courageous warrior in his fight against esophageal cancer, lost his battle on February 5, 2019. Adam was born June 4, 1991 in Spirit Lake, IA to Robbin (Soat) and Dan Dreeszen. As a Shriner’s baby, Adam knew well how to overcome obstacles. He graduated from Spirit Lake High School where he was active in wrestling, football, track, and 4-H. He continued his studies at DMACC, graduating as a Certified Ford Master Technician and worked for Shade Tree Auto.

Adam married his sweetheart, Kaylee Koster on October 13, 2018. He was a devoted husband who so deeply loved his wife that only death could separate them. Adam was a hard-worker, but knew how to have fun. He enjoyed trucks, go-kart racing, long motorcycle rides, ice cream, and time with the couple’s 4-legged child, Kuma. Adam and Kaylee were active in their church and life group.

Adam is survived by his wife, Kaylee Dreeszen; parents, Dan and Robbin Dreeszen; sister, Danielle Dreeszen; parents-in-law, Don and Robin Koster; brother and sisters-in-law, Lucas (Candace) and Adam (Kayla) Koster, Lacey (Ben) Holmes, and Kane (Jennifer) Koster; and many loving family members and friends too numerous to mention.

Visitation will be held Friday, February 8 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Hamilton’s on Westown Parkway, 3601 Westown Parkway in West Des Moines and the funeral service on Saturday, February 9 at 10:30 a.m. at Valley Church, 4343 Fuller Road in West Des Moines.
