Sam went to live in the Milton Wright Home around the age of four, an orphanage previously located near Greencastle, to which he credits his introduction to Christ. He graduated with the 1957 class of Greencastle Antrim High School. Following high school he attended barber school in Philadelphia.

Sam loved fly fishing and enjoyed teaching others the craft; one week of every year he would teach at Camp Tohiglo. He was a volunteer with Prison Ministry in Washington and Cumberland Counties for 35 years. Above all other loves, was his passion for our Lord. He was a charter member of the Berean Bible Fellowship Church. Sam accepted the Lord and became a Born Again Christian in 1972. He witnessed to everyone he would meet and loved handing out gospel tracts. His favorite Bible passage was Psalm 34, which Sam would have encouraged you to read.
