The two things Sam loved most were his family and his church. He loved to meet new people and welcome them into the church family. He wanted everyone to feel welcome. He also loved the outdoors and looking at old cars. Any time he saw an old classic car he would stop to take pictures. If he saw the owner he would ask them if they wanted to trade, but of course they never did. He loved to joke around with people.
