John was born February 20, 1940 in Burkburnett, Texas, the 8th child to Edwin Ezra Sampson and Amanda Octavia Evans. He was raised in a loving Christian home with several brothers and sisters;  Eddie, Buddy, Joe, Dan, Violet, Jean, Dorothy and Elsie. John attended school in Gunter and White Settlement, Texas. A good puzzle always made him smile. He enjoyed the beauty of God’s creation and spending time with others. John realized at an early age he loved to work and the sense of accomplishment it brought. He loved working with tools and his hands. John was a master builder. As a tradesman he was an all-around Handyman, Master Electrician and a General Contractor. As a Carpenter, John built many things;  churches because he valued the freedom of worship, schools because he valued the education of children and office complexes because he thought people should work.

As an Electrician, John could wire anything. He got a kick out of wiring up huge machines then bringing them to life. He always made sure people had light. As a man, he brought that same power to everyone around him. Let’s “give em a hand”. John walked with a confidence wrapped in humility. He loved a good joke, and sometimes he liked to pull your chain!

As a Handyman, John loved helping others. He added a little bit of happiness to others’ lives in things he built. He made special things for special people such as: pantries, kitchens, bathrooms, ramps, stools, stairs, toy boxes and many other things. He tried to live a life that pointed others to Christ by loving & helping people.

He believed God the Divine architect of all things loves you; and sent His Son Jesus to die in your place, so we could be forgiven our sins and live with Him in heaven. John is home, Amen!

He believed God uses our lives to tell a love story. Not with words but through the things we do. Johns stories were told by his actions not words.

He believed God stood for justice, mercy and being humble. That you should stand for something and have a point.Like the steeple of a church. If you look carefully at the steeple on this church you’ll find John’s fingerprints are there. He still reminds us this is not our home. Look up to the heavens, one day, through our faith we will all get home.

Jo0hn is survived by his wife, Virginia Dell Sampson of Morgan; brothers and sisters, Joe Sampson, Jean Fewell and Elsie Calhoun; children, Angela and Bud Barnett of Stanton, TX., Tanya Nutt of Rosebud, TX., Johnny and Toi Sampson of Covington, TX., Terry Taylor of Stanton, TX., Dan and Carol Sampson of Rosebud, TX., and Amanda and Lowell Scott of Rosebud, TX.; 30 grandchildren; 35 great-grandchildren; five great-great-grandchildren; along with numerous family members and close loved ones.
