Samuel John Oden Memorial Fund

Proverbs 16:3  "Entrust your works to the Lord, and your plans will succeed."

The Samuel John Oden Memorial Fund
has been established to honor Sam’s life and celebrate the special love that he had for kids, family, friends, and animals.


A free spirit and adventurous soul, Sam was a bright light whose smile would light up a room. He cared deeply for everyone and took pride in everything he did.  

Because of his love for helping and working with children, the Samuel John Oden Memorial Fund has been started as a way to donate funds to special programs that will continue Sam’s wish to help children, and bring happiness to their lives.

Through this fund, we will continue to support causes that Sam was passionate about.  Family, faith, and friends were the foundation of his character. We sincerely appreciate all contributions to honor Sam’s generous heart and compassion for others.  While his time here may have been cut short, our goal is that this fund will help his spirit to continue on.

Thank you for visiting this website and remembering Sam. We will continue to share stories, memories and photos, as well as updates on how you can help to support this fund.


Our family extends our sincere appreciation for your support and prayers which are very meaningful and provide strength as we continue to honor Sam’s life.
