Sam was longtime employee of Trailmobile in Charleston, IL. He had an appreciation for all kinds of trucks and four-wheelers. Sam went on many off-roading and mudding adventures, a passion he shared with his wife, children, and grandchildren. He was also a proud winner of the 2nd Class Mud Run in Neoga, IL. When Sam wasn’t out in the mud or tinkering with his trucks, he and Cheryl loved to go dancing and listening to country and rock and roll music. He harbored the times spent with his family and friends. With his gregarious personality, Sam did not know a stranger, and could often be found brushing elbows with all walks of life. He provided a sense of ease and comfort to his loved ones and he will be lovingly remembered. Memorials in Sam's honor may be donors choice.
