Obituary of Sam Bates Jr.
Sam Bates Jr.
April 17th, 1939- August 25th, 2023
Sam is survived by four sons, two daughter in laws,
ten grandchildren and his first great grandchild to
join us soon. Sam served our nation with the
Navy's Fighting Seabees stationed in Rota, Spain.
He was a pilot, entrepreneur, husband, father and
grandfather. Sam loved the outdoors, working on his
tractor and more than anything flea markets. He will
be missed dearly by friends and family but we take
solace knowing he is resting peacefully in Heaven.
