Samuel Boyd Rios, 23, of Scranton died unexpectedly Wednesday, Dec. 27.

Born and raised in Scranton, son of Sharon Boyd and the late Armando C. Rios, he was a member of Holy Rosary Church and educated in Scranton public schools. He had been employed by Aramark at the University of Scranton and Ogden Home Improvements. Sam enjoyed listening to his music, playing video games and taking walks with his brother, Zach.

Words cannot express how much you are loved and how much you will be missed. You touched the hearts of so many people, who you met in so many different ways. Mom and Zach feel you may be unseen and unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed and so very dear. To the moon and back our Sweet Sam.

Also surviving are a brother, Zachary J. Rios; two uncles, Robert and wife, Betsy; and Ronald; an aunt, Maureen Bennett Reggie, all of Scranton; and several cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ronald J. and Evelyn Boyd.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Saturday at 9:30 a.m. in Mary, Mother of God Parish, Scranton. Arrangements by the Thomas J. Hughes Funeral Home Inc., 1240 St. Ann's St., Scranton.
