David Sampson Jr., 78, of Charlestown Twp., passed away on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at University Hospital in Ravenna.

David was born at home on February 9, 1940 in Palmyra, Ohio to parents David and Leeta (Middleton) Sampson Sr. David was retired from Trexler Rubber in Ravenna after a 34 year career as a welder, machinist and fabricator. He loved to repair tractors, mow the grass and just be outside. He built his own house and as a “Jack of all Trades” could fix or fabricate anything. David was also the owner of Sampson Welding. He really loved barber shop singing and enjoyed his longtime participation with the Warren Stephen Foster Chorus, the Akron Derby Town Chorus, the Country Gentleman Quartet and the Dandy Demons Quartet. His children fondly remember the men practicing in their kitchen. Most of all he provided a wonderful, loving home for his family.

Also surviving are his grandchildren: Meganne (Jason) Braddock, Amanda (Craig) Gilli, Zac Dailey, Amber (Travis Adkins) Dailey and great-grandchildren: Aurora, Carson, Wyatt and Connor.
