Sam was a loving husband, father, and the worlds best Pa-paw. He was a transmission mechanic by trade. He hated to sit still and loved to tinker. He especially loved planting his garden every spring, making sure to always plant tomatoes. His grandkids were the light of his life. He fought long and hard with every adversity thrown at him over the years. He never gave up and would not go down without a fight. He will always be a positive inspiration to his family and friends.
