Samuel Patrick Horton was born June 13, 1957 in Quincy, Fla., the son of Steve and Hazel Goodwin Horton. He worked as a carpenter for M.R. Butler Company and was Methodist by faith.

Sam had a heart for others. Many in North Florida and South Georgia knew him to be that guy always lending a hand. He enjoyed the outdoors and camping in cooler weather. Sam & Maggie blended two families twelve years ago and family gatherings took on a new meaning. Watching the children and grandchildren explore the outdoors and learn his carpentry skills brought joy to his heart.

Survivors include his wife of 12 years, Maggie Horton; his children, Phyllis Kelley of Chattahoochee, Fla., Paula & Curt Capps of Blountstown, Fla., Pam Kelley of Sneads, Fla., Robin & Tony Jones of Quincy, Fla., Phil Kelley of Greensboro, Fla., Rhonda Horton of Chattahoochee, Ronnie Horton of Quincy, Amber & Michael Hagan of Hosford, Fla. and Tiffany & Daniel Johnson of Bainbridge, Ga; his siblings, Verdie Mae Hodges of Chattahoochee, and Steve Horton of Greensboro; his twenty grandchildren; and his five great-grandchildren. Sam was preceded in death by his parents.
