February 9, 1960December 20, 2013

Samuel Anthony Massaro, III, beloved son, brother and father, left earth for heaven on December 20, 2013. He was born on February 9, 1960. Sam fought his COPD, complicated by the flu and pneumonia, valiantly. Sam is survived by his mother, Virginia; sister, Deborah; sons, Samuel IV and Lyhue; daughter, Jennifer; step-daughter Cassi West; granddaughter, Isabella Rose and a whole host of aunts, uncles and cousins who all miss him tremendously. Sam's furry children, Doberman, Linus and alley-cat, Lucy miss him too. Sam loved his family and his many friends very much and we are so blessed because of his strength of character and generosity with his time and talents. When he was well he could fix anything. He always had time for everyone in his life. As of late, he would "get his Jesus on" by watching Joel Osteen every Sunday. Services will be held at Forest Park East, 21620 Gulf freeway, Webster,Texas 77598, (218) 332-3111 on Saturday, December 28, 2013 with visitation at 10:00 a.m. and a service of Christian burial at noon.

Some of life's greatest lessons come from the ugliest adversities. 2 years ago my perspective quickly changed when I was faced with my father's sudden death. This tragedy sent a very powerful message. Out of pain I have learned to love my family & friends deeper and the severity of their importance to me. Out of sorrow I have learned to spread compassion and benevolence knowing that all creatures inevitably perish. At a complete loss, I rediscovered my own values. Although under terrible circumstances, my life has changed in so many ways. 730 days of missing him has felt like a lifetime. But through all the pain I find comfort in embracing the lessons he has unintentionally taught me.

Dad.
some days I avoid my feelings just so that I dont break down. Life is unfair sometimes. I cant understand why god decided to take you so young. Our relationship was very unique and I pray every night that you know how much I love you. In your absence I have learned more than you could imagine. About love.

I have learned to truly value your loved ones and to let them know every day. Because life really is short. I cant think of any better way to honor you than to live by that and to spread kindness and humor.
I think of you every day.
I hope that your birthday in heaven is better than anything this earth could offer you. You have been my guardian angel since the day you left us and I feel you in my heart often. I love you dad. Happy birthday.
