This undated photo released by Cindy Shelton shows Adam Weise. Weise, 24, was killed in the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion. Weise was so proud of the little house he'd bought in Yorktown, Texas, that he didn't mind the 10-hour drive every three weeks to get back to work on the rig. His other prize possession: A black, four-wheel-drive diesel pickup truck he'd dubbed "The Big Nasty." "It was every boy's dream," says his mother, Arleen. "It's the kind of truck he always wanted, and he got it." Growing up without a father, Weise learned to hunt and fish from his grandfather. The youngest of four children, Weise was a star player for the Yorktown High School football team, known as a member of the Wildcats' "fabulous five." He went offshore not long after graduation in 2005 and was a floor hand aboard the Deepwater Horizon at the time of the disaster. (Cindy Shelton via AP)
