Sammy had a host of friends that he had made over the years through his employment with Coca-Cola (as a young man), as a coal miner at Standard Sign, Leslie & Grace Coal companies, and finally finishing his working years at Kellogg's. Some of Sammy's dearest friends were attained through his love and desire to serve the Lord. He was proud to call Grassy Freewill Baptist his home church since September 1979 and loved each and every person in that congregation. Sammy loved to garden and delighted in sharing his harvest with others. He loved to mow grass and keep his yard looking great. Sammy's real passion was spending time with his children & grandchildren, especially his time every Saturday night with his grandson, Jacob Justice. Sammy was so proud of his family and never failed to tell his children and grandchildren what they meant to him, even up to his final days. His daughters describe Sammy as their hero.
