Samuel was born on May 17, 1928 and passed away on Friday, March 9, 2018.

Samuel was a resident of North Carolina at the time of passing.

During this time, he felt called to the ministry so he enrolled at Duke University, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy.

Following high school, Sam served in the U.S. Navy from 1946-1948.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Habitat for Humanity or St. Andrew's UMC Room in the Inn.
