Sam was born on July 4, 1930 in Boone County, Missouri, the son of the late Alfred S. Rees and the late Martha Elizabeth (Boucher) Rees.

He and his wife Joe Ann (O’Neal) Rees were united in marriage on June 15, 1954. She survives his passing.

Sam served in the United States Army, Fort Riley, Kansas from 1951 until 1953. He worked for the United States Postal Service in Columbia for 39 years as a mail carrier, supervisor and Post Master.

He also liked to scuba dive, hunt, fly fish, and spend weekends at the family vacation home at Lake Ozark. In 1966, he received the Sharp Shooter Trophy form Camp Perry, Ohio.
