Sammie, of Beaumont, went Home to join his Savior on Monday. Hurricane Ike expedited his departure from this earth, but his time in this life was blessed and complete.
As a teenager, Sammie decided to pursue a youthful industry called "the oil fields". He lied about his age and thus began his career at the ripe old age of 15. Sammie devoted 50 years to the oil field with 41 years given to Amoco Production Company.
While working in the Barbers Hill oil fields, Sammie discovered a young lady named Ima Hill at a mutual friend's house during a social. Sammie and Ima cultivated an enduring friendship that harvested a marriage of 52 years.
Sammie endured the unexpected and life altering injury of their only son, Boyd. His unyielding resolve to his son's well being for over 30 years was heroic.
Prior to Sammie's retirement, he decided to build him, Ima, and Boyd a home they could grow old together in. After work, on weekends and off days he built their dream home. His resoluteness created a family gathering site that produced many photo opportunities.
His gardens produced enough food for the masses. Many freezers had plenty of fish. Jars of honey were hard to keep a secret. His bar-b-que chicken at family reunions was always anticipated. His love of tinkering produced many gadgets that one couldn't live without. His love of music and dance gave him and Ima many a fun filled night with friends and family. His love of nature and the outdoors created many enjoyable days in his rocking chair watching his hummingbirds.
Sammie's assured path to Glory was paved by his parents Arthur and Helen Turner Guidry, wife Ima Hill Guidry, son Boyd Guidry, son in law Cecil Parker, brothers Clyde, William, Elmer, and Robert Guidry, and sisters Evelyn Guidry Shaw, Louise Guidry Rhoades Davis, and Lillian Monroe.
Sammie leaves behind daughters, Sharon Parker, Jennie Brady and husband Pat; grandchildren, Chuck Brady and wife Christi, Candace Harmon and husband John, Tammie Parker, Cecil "Bubba" Parker and wife Tammy, Sharon Simmons and husband Robbie and Billie Parker; sisters-in-law, Myrtle Dugat and Dorothy Hill also endure.
