Samuel was a kindhearted person with a bright smile and a contagious laugh that would brighten up any room he walked in. He was an amazing father to his three kids, whom he loved and cherished the most. He was a humble, wonderful, hardworking man, and did everything in his power to make sure his kids and family were taken care of.
Samuel was the type of person you couldn’t forget because of his high spirit and ability to leave an impact on others. In the words of his brother Tevin, Samuel was the type of brother who annoyed you, but you couldn’t help but to love him; throughout all the fights and laughter he had with his sibling he truly was a gift from God, and it was an honor to be his baby brother/twin.

He held multiple jobs throughout his life - Popeyes, Oneida Center, CWS garbage company, Lutheran Home, and Texas Roadhouse.
