He grew up in both Ottumwa, Iowa and Tampa, Florida, graduating from Middleton High School in Tampa in 1975. Sam was a longtime employee of the Railroad and in the most recent years worked at General Motors and then as a contractor. Sam really enjoyed his Budweiser and loved the Kansas City Chiefs and Iowa Hawkeyes! You could definitely find him watching football on the weekends and if not football then some baseball or a good western show. He always kept up on his grandchildren and how they were doing in softball and baseball, checking every weekend for new stats or accomplishments. Sam loved his family and friends.
