He was educated in the public schools of St. George, Dorchester County, South Carolina. Some of his friends may remember him as a school bus driver. After he became grown, he left St. George to seek employment in New York. He worked twenty-five years at H.G. Greenwald and twenty years at Columbia University where he retired and moved back to South Carolina. While living in New York, he met a young woman, Louise and a courtship developed that led to marriage that took place on Thursday, December 31, 1959. To this union, one daughter was born.
Samuel dedicated his life to Jehovah in the late sixties and remained faithful to the end. He was always present in the service until his heart began to fail. He too has completed this life in reference to Timothy 2:14 which states “I have fought the fine fight, I have run the race to the finish.”
