Sam was born in Kermit, TX to Willie May and Franklin Homer Shirley on October 1, 1942. He went to school in Odessa, TX. He worked in construction for most of his life, always working hard to provide for his family. He loved to joke and make people laugh, and could often be found spinning around the dance floor to a good country and western song. He was a veteran and served in the United States Air Force. He was a good Christian man that loved the Lord and his family. His smile and love will be greatly missed.
