1953 SAMUEL 2024


April 10, 1953 — February 11, 2024

Samuel S. Williams, a beloved member known for his career in construction, has passed away at the age of 70. Born on April 10, 1953, in Navasota, Texas, Samuel was a vibrant and charismatic individual who left an indelible mark on the lives of all who knew him. His passing on February 11, 2024, has left a void that can never be filled.

Throughout his life, Samuel made countless memories with his ability to engage with anyone he encountered. He possessed an extraordinary knack for striking up conversations and making people feel heard and valued. His warm personality and infectious sense of humor made him the life of every party he attended. Whether it was exchanging stories over a fishing trip or sharing laughter while grilling at a barbecue, Samuel's ability to connect with others was truly remarkable.

Born and raised in Texas, Samuel found joy in activities that embodied the spirit of the Lone Star State. He had a passion for fishing and often found solace casting his line into calm waters, surrounded by the beauty of nature. When he wasn't angling for the perfect catch, Samuel could be found singing and dancing to music that spoke to his soul. His love for music transcended genres and brought people together through shared melodies. It was on the dance floor where he radiated pure joy and spread contagious happiness to everyone around him.

Samuel's career in construction was an essential part of his identity. Through dedication and hard work, he built a legacy that exemplified his commitment to craftsmanship. His skill set contributed to numerous projects that shaped communities near and far. Each structure he helped erect carried not only its physical weight but also Samuel's unwavering determination and unwavering pride in his work. Truck driving became his second career with United Van Lines where he later retired.

A man driven by love for his family, Samuel considered raising his children as one of his proudest accomplishments. His devotion extended beyond immediate kin, as he watched his family grow to include grandchildren and great-grandchildren. These precious relationships brought him immense joy and were a testament to the depth of his love. His legacy will forever live on through the lives of those he cherished so dearly.
