Following retirement, Sam lived a quiet life, enjoying woodworking, card playing, attending flea markets, camping and spending time with his family including, many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, Sam was preceded in death by brothers Lawrence, Enio “Ray,” Anthony, and John; and daughter Gayla.
