Sam had an avid love for music, especially country and bluegrass. He was quite the picker on guitar. You could always catch him enjoying old westerns and sports of any kind. Sam will be greatly missed by so many. To know Sam was to know the funny jokes he loved to tell and with that, we send you off, dear Sam, and we shall see you in the funny paper.
A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date. Burial will be in the Taylor Family Cemetery in Swords Creek, VA.
