He grew up in Redfield and graduated from Dexfield High School with the class of 1980. While in school, Sam enjoyed all sports especially wrestling, track, and football.

Throughout his life, Sam worked a variety of jobs around Dallas and Polk county. He was a life long member of the United Methodist Church in Redfield. Sam enjoyed many things in life, but none of them were more important than his three daughters, family, and friends. He loved watching his beloved Vikings, Iowa, and Iowa State, gardening, and was an avid reader.
