Obituary Notice

Richard “Dick” William Sampson, after a valiant battle with pneumonia, succumbed on January 2nd, 2013. He was born in Ironwood, MI, June 15, 1921 the son of James and Frances (Hudy) Sampson.
He attended Gogebic Community College and Michigan Tech to study Electrical Engineering before joining the Army Air Corps in 1941, where he was stationed in Italy with the 15th Air Force, 463rd Bomb Group. Dick served as Captain and received two bronze medals for his innovative ability and devoted crew, before his retirement as a Major. At Michigan Tech, after WWII, he received a Mechanical Engineering degree and went to work for 40 years with Michigan Gas and Electric Company, which later became part of American Electric Power Company. Dick served as President of the Michigan Power Company in Three Rivers as well.
Dick was active in his parish helping select property for the present Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. He served on the board at Glenn Oaks Community College and was past President of the Chamber of Commerce in Three Rivers. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus and a mission advocate for CFCA. Dick was deeply devoted to his Catholic faith and conservative ideals.
Dick built his own home on Fisher Lake, which was enjoyed by his kids, grandchildren, and many friends every summer. Dick was both elated and aggravated during his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events and extracurricular activities. His love for sports built the passion in which he shared with many of his children and grandchildren, The Chicago Bears, Blackhawks, and White Sox. Many Sundays were spent watching, listening, cheering, and grumbling with them. After retirement, he enjoyed being a “snowbird” at Orange Beach, AL with many new friends and a new parish of St. Thomas by the Sea. He loved God, his family, and his country.
Dick was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Margaret D’Amour ; brother, Raymond; daughter, Marianne Gleason , daughter-in-law Rebecca Weidenbeck Sampson; son-in-law, Scott Goldstein.
Dick leaves to cherish his memory - his wife of 64 years, Joan (Donnelly) Sampson; brother, Robert of Kennett Square, PA; brother- in- law, John Donnelly (Ann Nee). Dick’s main concern and joy in life was his children; Emily Engel, Maureen (Bill) Fosdick, of Williamsburg, MI, Kateri (Tim) Klein, of Frankfort, MI, Jim (Susan O’Brien), of Tampa, FL, Bernadette (Tim) Simon, of Eagle Vail, CO, Tony (Kathy Griffin), of Three Rivers, MI, Mike (Yvonne Little), of Dimondale, MI, Ric Jr. (Stephanie Foster), of Three Rivers, Mary Jo Goldstein , of Ann Arbor, MI, and Danny (Aaron Snyder), of Kalamazoo, MI.

As a member of the Radeloff family, I am deeply saddened by the news of Mr. Sampson. I grew up thinking Mr. Sampson was the "Godfather" of Fisher's Lake. I will miss seeing Mr. Sampson mowing the lawn on his riding lawn mower wearing that ever so bright smile and sharing a wave! Once every summer I would catch Mr. Sampson outside and get all the latest news on the Sampson clan. He was always so proud. Fisher Lake will not be the same! My prayers go out to the rest of the Sampson family.

We were saddened to learn about Dick passing away. He was loved by so many people in Three Rivers. Both Dick and Joan were very helpful and kind to me when I was the Administrator of Immaculate Conception School for nine years. You will always remain in my heart as well as your family. I will never forget the time the kids and grandkids came to my mother's place the first Christmas after my father passing away and singing to my mother and I. We have been truly blessed to have the entire Sampson family in our lives. I shall picture Dick in my mind's eye sitting in the pew at I.C. Church the last time I was there.
