He was thoughtful and caring, he always looked to the needs of his fellow man. A very important part of Sam’s life was attending and participating in stomp dances. He was proud of his children, Echohawk and Catauyah. The Great Spirit took Sam under his wings on November 12th, 2012 in Tulsa, OK. Sam was 47 years old. He will be greatly missed by all who looked out their kitchen window, and saw Sam’s smile coming up their driveway.

Those left to cherish his memory include his son, Echohawk Keetoowah Kingfisher of Shawnee, OK, and daughter, Catauyah Talula Kingfisher of Siloam Springs, AR.

I haven't seen Sam since we were kids at Greenwood, but he always had a smile, was friendly, and well liked. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing.
