Sam was a deeply spiritual man who shared God’s love with others. He was an inspiration to all who knew him and was loved and admired by many. Whether in the mission fields of Honduras, Guatemala, Peru, Central Indiana Church of God Camp Grounds, or Brown County; the impact of Sam’s life will be felt for years to come.
