Sam “aka punky” was always smiling. He loved his family, and most of all his children. He enjoyed hanging out with his brother in-laws.  He enjoyed going off roading and it was an adventure. There was never a dull moment when he was around. Most times everyone laughed so hard, and sometimes until they cried. Sam always had his speakers blaring with a variety of music. Those who knew him knew he would play the air guitar to go along with the music.  Sam loved going to the drags and watching the cars that were “wicked” and would say they are “all bad, A”. Sam loved taking his kids, nieces and nephews, and siblings to go on an adventure. That adventure was off roading in any truck that he owned, but the most memorable to most was his little red Chevy and his bad truck that was white and lifted. Anyone that went over to his house knew he always had his music playing and his bon fires. He was one of the kindest souls but would always greet everyone with a “what’s up, A”. He loved to be with his family and around others, and would invite them to his bon fires and Matanzas.

Sam had man accomplishments; but most of all he loved the derby he built when he was young.  Many had many fond memories of him with that derby. Crystal was the professional driver because she was the only one that could control it right. Into his adulthood he would later give that derby to his kids, nieces and nephews. He was always smiling, and boy was that smile contagious! He loved his rocket stove that he built and having bonfires. Some would call him a pyro; but mostly, he loved fire. He just loved the way the flames looked. His biggest accomplishment of all was his kids and grandkids. He took pride in all his work and was pretty handy!

Sam was the only brother of 3 sisters who he loved deeply, and they loved him. His parents loved him, and he loved them, of course he was a momma’s boy “aka hito”

At this time, we ask that you leave a comment of your best memory of Sam. He will be deeply missed by family and so many friends. May we all treat others with kindness and greet others with a smile, like he always did.
