Samuel “Sam” Charles Coughenour, at age 66, was called home on Monday, July 9, 2018. Sam was born on February 13, 1952, in Fairmont, West Virginia, and has two surviving brothers, Allen Kenneth Coughenour and James Robert Coughenour II, and niece, Susan Elizabeth Cooper. He is now reunited with his mother, Margaret Martha Emma Coughenour, and his father, James Robert Coughenour who preceded him in death. Sam never married and had no children, but he was a beloved uncle and brother.

Sam graduated Valedictorian from Washington High School in 1970. He went on to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics from Arizona State University. Sam worked for the City of Phoenix IT Department for over thirty years and retired in November 2008.

Sam was an avid sports fan of Arizona sports which included the Cardinals, Diamondbacks, and ASU Sun Devil Football. He had season tickets and never missed the chance to travel to Tucson to watch his Devils beat the UofA Wildcats. Go Devils! He loved to vacation in Las Vegas, Laughlin, and Lake Tahoe. He and his brother, Allen, would go to Reno, NV, for March Madness, and he never missed a chance to see his favorite band, The Moody Blues, in concert.

Sam was a very giving person and he will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.

Services will be held on Monday, July 23, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. Refreshments and fellowship will follow the service.

The service will be at West Resthaven Funeral Home, located at 6450 West Northern Avenue, Glendale, Arizona.

There are no words to express the loss that now exists, beginning the moment you were called home. To not see your sweet smile, feel your warm hug or hear your comforting words again are only bearable knowing where you are is pain free and filled with all the joy you truly deserve. Missing and loving you today, tomorrow and always. May you Rest In Paradise my sweet friend.

Sam was my best friend of over forty years. He was Best Man at my wedding and he even helped me get a job with the City of Phoenix (back in the late 70's). He and his brother, Allen, and our families always went to ASU Football games together for many years. We also went to as many Moody Blues concerts as possible. He was a very smart person, graduating with Honors from both high school and college. It just seems so surreal. I can't believe we will never see each other or go to concerts or vacation together again. I will miss him very much! Miss you bro'.
