Samuel Mason Harrington of Euless, Texas, passed away on January 18th in Euless, Texas. PawPaw will always be remembered as a loving son, husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather to all that knew and loved him.

PawPaw was the most honorable man we have ever known with a true heart of gold. That made everyone feel so welcome and he never failed to make you laugh hysterically. He was awarded the presidential citation for extraordinary heroism while in the 222nd infantry of the army, he was a honorary deputy sheriff for Dallas County, and so much more. Also a huge part of him was his produce company in Dallas Farmers Market, Harrington Produce.

Sam is survived by his loving wife of 69 years Mary Ruth Harrington of Euless, Texas; his granddaughter Crystal McGee Harrington, his great grandchildren Tony Bednarek, Taya McGee, Isys McGee, and Romello McGee. He was preceded in death by this family.

The visitation will be held from 3-5 o'clock pm on Sunday January 21st 2018 at the funeral home. The funeral service will be held at 12:30 on January 22nd 2018 at Bluebonnet Hills Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow in Bluebonnet Hills Memorial Park with a reception to follow at Bluebonnet Hills Funeral Home.

"Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval,somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!"
