Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 27, 1893, USA
Death: Oct. 31, 1963, USA

Sam Shoemaker was an Episcopal priest who was important in the development of US Oxford Group, based in NY. Also one of the main contributors to the founding principles of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Bill W, cofounder of A,A credits much of what AA is based on to Rev. Shoemaker. Additionally he gives Rev. Shoemaker a large part of the credit for the development of the 12 steps of AA. Rev. Shoemaker's tireless efforts in helping the sick and suffering man, whether an alcoholic or just spiritually in pain, set the example for those that came after him.

Rev. Shoemaker is buried in a family plot to the right as you enter the parking lot, in the cemetery yard closest to the church itself. A tall pinkish hue obilisk stands at the center of the plot.

Father: Samuel Moor Shoemaker Jr, born 1861
Mother: Ellen Ward Whitridge Shoemaker, died 1954
