Samuel is survived by his wife of 61 years Audrey; a daughter, Karen Marlin-Sea; and son-in-law David Sea. Further survived by sisters-in-law, a brother-in-law and a number of nieces and nephews.
Sam was born in Spiro Oklahoma on December 23, 1935, to Irene and Henry Marlin. He worked at the Tracy Defense Depot for 30 years, where he worked as a part-time firefighter in addition to his regular duties as a warehouse supervisor. Sam was also a volunteer firefighter for the Tracy Fire Department. Samuel and Audrey moved to Lodi in 2005 to be closer to their daughter and son-in-law.
Sam was a devoted husband, loving father, a skilled carpenter and took great pride in being a volunteer firefighter. He loved traveling by RV with his wife and visited a number of US states as well as British Columbia. He also enjoyed camping and fishing. In his younger years, Sam played guitar and sang his favorite Hank Williams songs with his father and brothers.
Sam will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.
Per the family’s request, services will be private.
