Samuel was a young boy with a wild streak. He loved to give his mother a hard time. He was taught early on the importance of hard work by his father and continued to be a great role model for his two sons. His father worked as a coal truck driver in Haysi, VA. And after his dad’s passing, most people knew Samuel with the nickname, RingEye after his fathers old cb handle. Growing up in a small town, he loved to help friends and neighbors however he could, never expecting anything in return. Samuel loved to work with his hands, creating one of a kind masterpieces or gifts for those he loved. He also loved to teach his boys all about cars, four wheelers, or anything with a motor. He grew up in a Christian home and church and continued it in raising his boys. He loved his wife and boys and tried to give them everything life has to offer.
