I am very sorry for your loss. It's not easy losing someone we love to death. Acts 24:15 tells us that soon there will be a resurrection of our dead loved ones. So please take comfort in the thought of seeing Thomas again.

Dear Liz and Tim, We were so sorry to hear of Tommy's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We were visiting Nick in Denver when he let us know. We loved Tommy. He certainly brought joy and laughter into so many lives! Much love to you - Nan and John Vonesh

How sad! I am very sorry for your lost. I am really touched by Mr. Sampson's obituary. He was truly a good person! How comforting it is to know that He is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every wonderful detail about him, and bring him back again to live on this earth that will be free of sickness, suffering and death. Please visit www.jw.org to see how this wonderful promise from God will soon be fulfilled.

I am regretful to hear about the loss of your dear loved one. How tragic, tears flow automatically when we lose a loved one due to the pain we feel inside. Within your grieving and recovery, may Gods’ mercy surround you. John 5:28,29 tells of a resurrection; ‘A better place.’

My sincere condolences to the family, it is so unfortunate to read about Tommy because we are the same age. The good part though is our loving heavenly Father promises to do away with death for good (Isaiah 25:8). That is a promises we all look forward to seeing fulfilled.

Thomas Michael Sampson, 27, died suddenly on January 1, 2018 at Memorial Hospital.  He died peacefully with his loving family at his side.

Tommy worked as a bartender for Chart House Restaurant, where he adored his co-workers, boss, and patrons.  He had extraordinary people skills and a huge, friendly, loving personality.  He truly loved engaging with people and found something to like and admire in everyone he met.  To be with Tommy was to laugh with Tommy.  He was the personification of a good time.  He prided himself on the positive, calming influence he brought to help resolve conflicts.  If one measures a person’s success by how many lives he touched, how much joy he brought to others, and how many life-long friends he had, Tommy died a very wealthy man.

Tommy grew up in Northern Virginia and graduated from James Madison High School in Vienna.  He was an excellent athlete, an accomplished lacrosse player in high school, and loved and played many sports – especially golf – throughout his life.  He was an avid, life-long fan of the Washington Redskins, Nationals, Capitals, and Wizards.  He cherished his time with family and loved ones, and loved playing guitar and chilling at the family lake house in North Carolina.

Tommy moved to Savannah in 2014 and immediately fell in love with its charm, history, and people.  Fulfilling his passion for lacrosse, he helped coach the Benedictine Cadets JV lacrosse team.  He enjoyed performing on his guitar and singing at the Tree House and other local venues.  But mostly, he just enjoyed being with his family and friends, especially with a Bud Light in his hand.

Survivors include his parents, Tim and Liz Sampson of Savannah; sister Claire Sampson of Savannah; brother Scott Sampson of Arlington, VA; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Tommy’s friends are welcome to join his family in celebrating Tommy’s life at his After Party on February 6 from 3-6 pm at the Plantation Club at The Landings in Savannah.  In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Tommy’s memory to the Humane Society of Greater Savannah (humanesocietysav.org).
