Sam, 82, was born August 11, 1937, in Bessemer, AL to Mary Lou Hunter and Willie C. Harris, Sr. The family later relocated to Toledo, Ohio, where he met and married Helen Greenlee. To their union two sons were born, Gregory and Reginald.

Sam was a faithful member of The Calvary M.B. Baptist Church where he served on many auxiliaries including the Senior Usher Board. Sam was a committed member of the Lions Club-Toledo Chapter and retired from Interlake Steel after many years of dedicated service.
