Full Name Adrian Lee Stroup
Date of Birth Wednesday, March 8th, 1939
Date of Death Thursday, October 26th, 2017
Place of Death Dora, NM

Adrian Lee Stroup was born March 8, 1939, in Portales, to the home of Audrey Pauline (Beeman) and Robbie Lee Stroup and died at his home, early on the morning of Oct. 26, 2017.

His early years were in the Hiway community. However, the family left on two different occasions and moved to Merced, CA to work in the fields because of drought conditions here. He graduated from Dora High School in 1957.

After graduation, Adrian worked at a dairy in Clovis, before going to work for the Roosevelt County Telephone Co-op as a lineman. In 1969, he purchased the service station in Dora, and established Stroup Oil Co. After 23 years, he left the service station and began ranching in partnership with his brother-in-law, and his sister. He finally retired in 2002 due to his deteriorating health.

On June 13, 1959, at the Dora Church of Christ, he was married to his wife. He was a faithful member of the church all his life. Adrian was a Lifetime Member of the NRA, and had served his community for two terms on the city council.

He loved to go camping, hunting and fishing with friends and family. Adrian also enjoyed hunting for arrowheads and reading. When the need arose, he was handy with a needle and thread, and even knew how to crochet.

He is survived by his wife of more than 58 years, a son and daughter-in-law, a daughter, three grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and a sister.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Donny Ray Stroup.
