Samuel “Sam” Anthony Maggio was born on January 21, 1930. A resident of Vinton for 65 years, he passed away on October 25, 2020 at the age of 90.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 49 years, Janice Maggio, children: Sammy Maggio Jr. (Vickie), Mike Maggio (Cheryl), Cindy Maggio, Kim Maggio (Kevin Augustine), Carlo Maggio (Kalli), and brother, Billy Maggio (Netchanok); grandchildren, Sammy Maggio III (Tiffaney), Shawn Maggio (Rachelle), Chad C.

Sam was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Rose Maggio, brothers, Kenneth Maggio and Charles Maggio, and children Gregg Maggio and Ricco Maggio.

As a graduate of Natchitoches High School in 1949, Sam excelled in basketball, baseball, football, and track. As a young man, he worked for Marathon Oil Company and continued on this path for 40 years. As a community supporter, Sam coached recreational sports, drove the school bus for Our Lady’s School, was an active member of the Knights of Columbus, and served as the Justice of the Peace in the community of Vinton.

Sam was young at heart, and always lived life to the fullest. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, playing golf, and anything outdoors. His favorite thing to do was “drinking Miller High Life at B&B and dancing with Momma.” He will be remembered as never meeting a stranger, and never having an enemy. His free-spirited personality will be missed by many.
