Hamed Adam Hamzehdoost GROTON – Hamed Adam Hamzehdoost, 23, of Reedy Meadow Road, passed away on December 31, 2016. Born on May 16, 1993 in Sacramento, CA, he was the youngest child and beloved son of Cynthia Pitkin and Ahmad Hamzehdoost. Hamed attended Isabelle Jackson Elementary School in Sacramento before moving to Groton. While in high school he participated in cross country, indoor and outdoor town soccer, World Cup Soccer (NH), and town basketball. He was a Life Scout in Troop 28 in Dunstable. He graduated from Groton-Dunstable Regional High School in 2011.

After studying for a semester at Middlesex Community College in Lowell, the open road called to him and he completed his first solo bicycle trip across the country to California, visiting friends and family along the way. His next adventure was a solo trip across Canada, ending in Oregon. Hamed returned to Middlesex Community College in Bedford to study biotechnology. He also worked part-time. Hamed was a lover of all things organic, playing music from his guitar, drums, and harmonica, learning yoga, reading at the library, and spending time in the great outdoors. Always looking for adventure he tanned a wolf hide, built teepees and lean-tos, and re-designed his bicycle. He was a kind and gentle soul with a contagious smile.

Survivors include his loving sisters Katie Hamzehdoost of Groton and Kiana Hamzehdoost of Brooklyn. In addition he is survived by his mother's relatives: his grandfather Dr. Richard W. Pitkin of Corinth, aunts and uncles Rebecca P. Fasulo and her husband, David of Corinth, Alson W. Pitkin of Corinth, M. Jennifer Palumbo and her husband, Frank of Canton, and Alex C. Pitkin and his wife, Shari of Somerville, MA, and cousins Daniel and Amy Fasulo, Myrrh Pitkin, Francesco and Cristiano Palumbo, and Samantha and Spencer Pitkin, and great-aunt Jody DiLoreto and her husband, Daniel of Rochester. Loving relatives on his father's side include his grandfather Hamzeh Hamzehdoost of Tehran, aunts Razieh Shaffii and her husband Dr. Shaffii of El Macero, CA, and Mina Koocheki of London, Homa BetGeorge of Turlock, CA, cousins Marzieh Shaffii, Shaima Shaffii, and Sohail Shaffii, Ovace Modabber and Mariam Modabber, and half-brother Charles McLaughlin and his wife Sherrie of San Francisco and niece Adeleigh.

By picking the faded blue
Of the last remaining aster flower
To carry again to you." … "Late Walk" by Robert Frost
