He wasn't truly happy unless he was working on a project of some kind. He loved all animals, especially horses, and was a long-time member of White Lake Riding Club.  He had a generous heart and a helping spirit. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and loved, boating and camping and traveling. Sam loved his music and could often be seen dancing in the living room with Sherry. As a part of his final wishes , Sam wanted all to enjoy food, music and dancing.


He is survived by 6 siblings: Colleen, Mae, Norma Jean, Don, Donna, and Gordon, his sons, Samuel Dean (Bunny), Todd (Deena), and daughter Andrea Garnet Sames  (Steven) 9 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.
