He was a good and devoted husband whose life centered on his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, his home and family. Sam is preceded in death by his mother Flora Sanchez and father Arthur Sanchez of Albuquerque, and his sister Joan Fisher of Kerrville, Texas.

A special thanks to his many, excellent doctors, hospital staff at Lovelace, and especially his dear friend and doctor, Dr. Brent Frame.
