Sammy attended school in Smithfield, Utah. He had many things he cherished in life, but his grandchildren put the biggest smile on his face. He loved attending their cheer performances, dance recitals, football games and their birthday parties. They will all miss him very much. He loved his Corvette, Harley Davidson and watching the Cowboys every chance he got. He also enjoyed lifting weights, camping, a good BBQ and being with all his family. He loved family gatherings at “The Ranch.” He had many friends always stopping by just to say “Hi”. You know you would always get a scare, a joke or dog jaw when close to him.
Sammy was employed previously at Le Grand Johnson. Later on he owned his own fencing business, MJS. His last employer was Staker Parson, where he was a loader operator for the past 15 years. He truly enjoyed his job and coworkers.
