Samuel Crabtree

Born
Died

I miss talking about our dreams for the future. I miss being able to pick up the phone and talk to him. Mostly I miss that he has not been able to be there for our son. My son missed out on having a father.

Tell us about your loved one.

Sammy was my son's father. He was a carpenter by trade. Sammy had a good heart. He was a man of few words, but when he spoke it was deep or very funny. He had been known to give homeless people his food, and he loved animals. He struggled with addiction to alcohol for many years. He later became addicted to RX drugs. Sammy lost the battle at 32. Way too young. He never got to see his son grow up. RIP Sammy Crabtree. Forever in our hearts.
