Samuel Abel Mendez, Sr., 62, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, October 30, 2021, in Laredo, Texas.
“Sammy” dedicated his career to helping others as a registered nurse. Every doctor, nurse, and patient that knew Sammy loved him. He was greatly appreciated by all.
Sammy was an avid Cowboys fan and jokester. Everyone that knew him will remember him by a joke that he once told them. One of his favorite pass times was hanging out with friends and riding his motorcycle.
Sammy, you will be greatly missed.
