Sending our heartfelt love, hugs and prayers. Always remember our times at small group. Sam was a true gentle man. Also how he would dress as a clown for the children. Glory has gained another angel. Levi & Peg Beiler

I am so sorry to hear of Sam's passing. Many years ago we bowled at the Christiana bowling alley. It was always fun being around Sam. His laugh was infectious, he was a good man and will be sorely missed

I am so sorry about the loss of your Dad.  He was such a fun and spirited person.  I have many many childhood memories of things our families shared.

He really knew how to be a friend.

Dear Ellen and Family,

So many memories over the fifty plus years. My friend Sam and I "caught up" on our relationship, especially the last seven years. A few visits and a ton of phone conversations. Our prayers are with the entire family for the peace that transcends our understanding in Jesus Christ. Love you all!

Joe and Cynthia Ranson
