Dillow-Taylor Funeral Home Obituary

Samuel was born on May 2, 1950 and passed away in October 2017. Samuel was a resident of Jonesborough, Tennessee at the time of passing. Raised in a military family, he graduated in 1968 from Frankfurt High School-Frankfurt, Germany and spent some of his formative years living at Fort Richardson and Wildwood Station in Alaska where he discovered his love of fishing. Sam served as a Sgt. in the Air Defense Artillery branch of the US Army as a HAWK missile radar technician. "What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes part of us." Sam's spirit, joy, and talents will be celebrated on Friday, November 3 at Dillow-Taylor Funeral Home in Jonesborough with visitation from 5:00-7:00 and an informal service to follow. Memorial contributions in Sam's honor may be made to the Washington County Humane Society.
