Tyler’s Adam Nunn, 96X Hottest Bartender Contestant, Dies in Car Accident at Age 27
Adam Nunn, a popular Tyler bartender who competed in our 96X Hottest Bartender Contest earlier this year, died Saturday night in a car accident in Flint.
According to media reports, driver Nathan Lebrun, of Flint, was driving down Farm-to-Market Road 2813 when he failed to make a turn and overturned his car off the road. Nunn was in the passenger seat, and was pronounced dead on the scene.
Lebrun is still in the hospital in serious condition.
Nunn had previously worked as a bartender in Tyler at Where’s Rufus and in Gresham at Half Moon Grill & Saloon — where he took some awesome pictures with us for our Hottest Bartender Contest.
All of us at 96X extend our hearts and prayers to Adam’s family and friends — we had a great time in the little time we spent with Adam taking his picture. And we also extend our best wishes to Nathan and his recovery.
Memorial services for Adam are 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21 at Burks Walker Tippit Funeral Home. The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until the service starts.
RIP, Adam. God speed.
