Cemetery) in Kenedy, Texas. It is directly across the street from the
Adrian was born April 7, 1943 in the Rio Grande Valley (I believe in Rio Hondo). He died late Monday night Jan. 2,2006 at the Kenedy Manor Nursing Home on highway 181 just south of Kenedy.
Adrian was a musicologist and playwright. He provided information to Linda Ronstadt on her album "Canciones de mi padre" (song eleven) "La barca de Guaymas". Ironically it's a song, a slow waltz, about a sailor returning home with death in his soul.
Adrian was a member of the Baha'i Faith and had a Baha'i graveside funeral. As far as I know, he is the first Baha'i to be buried there. It is a pauper's grave.
In his love and pursuit of music, Adrian did not concern himself with material wealth. In 1996, his collection of over 12,000 songs recorded by Mexican Americans from the 1920s to the 1980s was placed in the Southwestern Writers Collection at Texas State University-San Marcos.
