I always had the greatest times with Sammy and John in their backyard pool! Sammy had a great sense of humor and treated me like family :)

Wade invited me to go to Vegas with them one summer. The whole planning process was so fun. And the thing I was most excited about was white tigers at the mirage (I was16) I think Sammy and Susie were just as excited for my excitement. To our surprise the damn tigers were on vacation. So on our way out Sammy woke us all up extra early so he could take me to this amazing sculpture of the tigers to have a picture. There are so many..... but this is one of my favorite ♥️ Love y’all

My wife, Norma and I send our deepest condolences to the Baker family for the passing of Sam. Sam and I worked together at the Northeast Substation and I always considered him an outstanding officer. The citizens of Houston could rest assured that Sam’s presence on the streets made it that much safer. He was not only an outstanding officer, he was my friend. Rest In peace, Sam.
