Alexander Francis Samas,

A loving husband, father and grandfather who’s faith guided him through

He was a man of faith, dignity, humor and strength. His love of life was contagious, he brought
Joy to all he met.

His last big fish landed his picture on a Sport magazine….”86 years young and still sticking the sea bass”.

His 3 “ holes in one” made him very proud and someone to respect on the course.

His cooking left everyone asking “what’s for dinner”….and, “when will you open your own kitchen to the public”.
He did In fact cook for the public every day, he delivered his goodies to his loved neighbors, along with a morning joke.

Strong and with unbending character. His love of life, family, and the Lord was an example for all.

He spent his retired years committed to volunteer work at the St Francis Home in Santa Ana, working to
