Early in life, Sam determined an education was not required, opted out, and joined the workforce. He spent most of his working years in agriculture where he earned a solid reputation due to his strong work ethic. Despite not having attended schooling, his natural instincts enabled him to be one of the smartest men we knew. Sam possessed a great deal of knowledge and potential. He excelled in areas such as home construction, creating/rebuilding projects, and auto mechanics. Sam found a passion for Tejano music, learned to play several instruments, and was a member of multiple local bands. When he was not performing, he enjoyed watching other Tejano performers and dancing to the music he loved.
