Sammy Sipes Obituary

Sammy Sipes was born on March 12, 1954 and went to be with the Lord on February 20, 2023. Sammy was known by many and loved by many many more. Few people could hear the name Sammy Sipes and not know him in some way or form.

Sammy believed a man was only as good as his word and he lived his life accordingly. He was many things to many people.

Sammy was a quiet man, a logger, a fisherman, an avid camper, a jokester, a friend, a brother, a father, and a husband. Above all Sammy was a man who loved the Lord and loved his wife.

Sammy married Polly and embraced fatherhood of three little girls., Evelyn, Melissa, and Maria. Years later and with a lot of love in between they had a son, James. He then adopted his brother Clint and Kyle along the way.

Sammy had no quit and he expected the same from those around him. He gave as good as he got and in the process, gained the respect and love of any who came into his life.

Sammy lived a full and happy life and will be missed by too many to count, but his memory will live on in the hearts of those that knew him best: his wife, his children, and his grandchildren.

Sammy is proceeded in death by his parents N.E. and Ruby Sipes and a sister, Pam Sipes.
