Samuel “Sammy” Ray Argo was called by our Lord on Wednesday, August 17, 2022 after a long and courageous battle with lung disease. He carried his Cross with dignity and grace. He was met in heaven by his parents., Bernard “Buddy” and JoAn Argo, and his brother, Pete Argo. Born May 29th, 1960, he was raised and lived his whole life in the South Valley of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Sammy is survived by his wife of 40 years, Veronica, children: Renee (Danny) Ayala, Davin (Alexandria) Argo and Calandria (Clint) Reno. He also leaves behind four grandchildren: Ayla, Adelynn, Aloryss, and Caroline, whom he loved dearly, sister MaryAnn (Gene) Sanmann, brother Bert (Stacey) Argo, and sister-in-law Charlene Argo, as well as numerous family and friends.
He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially while taking trips to Elephant Butte Lake. He took pride growing green chile in his garden and inviting everyone over for a roasting party. You could always find Sammy tinkering in his garage and enjoying an ice-cold Corona.
