So many countless memories with this man.. Nothing but adventures from jump.. From rollin between Nashville and Atlanta, him getting "into" things and involving me.. One time living in Lebanon, he takes the caprice to the store or wherever, lol.. Sam rolls in the drive way runs in the house throws me the keys and says "you were driving!!" Before i could say anything, police were in the driveway looking in the car... Dang it man!!! Altho thru the years we didnt talk much, when he showed up at my door step in Iowa in December 2016, he sparked something and within a couple weeks me and the kids headed to Missouri, where we made a life together.. Man, had it been a dollar coaster.. We tested our patience with each other daily... But he also held daily classes in passing along his knowledge.. I never met someone so full of knowledge of any and everything and eager to pass it along.. He had an immense amount of love for God, his family and anyone else that crossed his path.. One of few that would drop everything to go help someone else even if that someone wasn't a friend or even someone he knew.. There was no end to what he would do or go thru to make sure what needed to be done was done or even what was wanted... I will forever be grateful for all he had taught me, i will carry it on for the rest of my days... He is and will be missed.. I love you Sam!!!

Sam taught me a lot about life and showed me a lot of the things i know now. One of my favorite things he taught me was to make the best of what you have, and to not be materialistic. One of my favorite memories with him was when we first moved to Missouri in January of 2017,, and we were driving down the road trying to find a bathroom and he made me laugh so hard I yelled "stop you're hurting my pee" and he always uses to tease me with that after it happened because it made him laugh so hard when i said it that day because that's definitely not what he was expecting. And no matter what time of day it was or where i was, if i called him and needed help, he was there to help as quick as he could be like in October 2019 when i hit a raccoon on the interstate on my way home from work at 3am(night shift), i ruined my radiator and my car overheated and he was the first one I called, him and mom were sleeping but they found a ride to me within almost 5 mins and were to me in 20. He really was a life saver and a darn good father figure to me. I am so thankful to have shared so many countless moments and memories with him.
