The Sampson family gained a guardian angel on July 9th, 2020 at the age of 46. Samuel Robert Sampson (Sam), was loved by many throughout the Big Hole Valley and surrounding communities. Sam grew up with the support of his community in which he returned whole heartedly. Life didn’t always come easy, but he had six reasons to push on. Sam is preceded in death by his mother, father, uncle, and one brother. He is survived by his adopted father, his six kids; Kylee (24), Samantha (23), Kylie Jai, (18), Breeonna (15), Tayler (14), and Trevyn (10), four sisters, two brothers, one aunt, two uncles, six nephews, three nieces, two great nieces, three best friends and their families, and numerous cousins. Upon Sam’s request there will be no services held. The private spreading of ashes will be held at a later date.
