Sam was one of the first people who I met after moving to Joplin. He was at the gas station every morning. Helped me fill my tank or wash my windows. He even came to my house a time or two to help with other projects. He was a very nice man and the world was a better place because he was in it. Rest in Peace Sam!

Sammy will be missed. He was definitely one of a kind, and he cared deeply. So sorry we can't be there for the service. Love to you all.
