Our Lord came to take Rich on March 15, 2020.
Richard was born to Joseph and Virginia (Brown) Sams
on March 21, 1936 in Peoria, Illinois. He is survived by his
wife Carol Branton/Sams and children Rick/Teri Sams and 5
grandchildren, Marci Sams and step-children John/Dawn Branton and 4 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren , James/Shelley Branton and Jason Branton.

Richard spent 50+ years as a pharmacist, working in Wisconsin, Illinois and New Mexico. At one point, he had licenses in 5 states. His love for family was closely followed by his love for his horses and dogs. He was a facilitator for Griefshare, taught Sunday School for years as “Mr. Rich” and was a member of the Lions Club. He ran the sound system in his church in New Mexico and volunteered at the food pantry. He helped with the Men’s Emmaus Walk.

The family is planning a memorial/memory buffet in the immediate future at Westshire Lakes clubhouse, Delavan. We encourage others to share life experiences they have had with Rich. “Among the best things we can give each other are memories” – (Henry JM Nouwen.) Due to the risk of virus to susceptible individuals, we will be letting everyone know when the buffet will be held. If you would like to receive information please send your e-mail to Richard.Sams.Always.Remembered @

My memories of Rich are that he was kind, caring and willing to help people and his church in a variety of ways. His smile and laugh would light up anyone's day. Rich had such a wonderful speaking voice - reading scripture or giving a prayer in church. I remember having dinner at Rich & Carol's and he was soooo happy grilling outside (and the food was delicious). Rich's personality and life was so diverse. It was enjoyable to listen to him.
