Adam Thomas Samora

July 17, 1981 ~ August 25, 2023 (age 42) 42 Years Old


Adam Thomas Samora, also known to his many friends and family as Zozo, 42, unexpectedly passed away on Friday, August 25, 2023, in Albuquerque, NM.

Adam was born in Alamogordo, NM on July 17, 1981.  He is survived by his longtime Girlfriend, Shantele Santillanes; his mother, Debbie Serna and husband Alex; his father, Tommy Samora; his 3 children and 2 stepchildren, Anastasia, Gianna, Gabriel, Sammy, and Daniel; sister, Shonna Samora; 3 nephews, Demitrius, Alex, and Dominic; and a large and tight knit family of aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Adam was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Rito and Julia Samora and maternal grandparents, Ray and Marjorie Wells. 

Adam worked as a tile installer most of his life, but his passion lay with many other artistic areas that include drawing, air brushing, painting murals, and tattoo art.  There was nothing he couldn’t do in the artistic realm.  He also had a passion for restoring and customizing classic cars.
