Samuel M. Weston was born July 31st 1950 in Logan, Utah to George Wesley Weston and Theda Mattson. He grew up on the family ranch chasing cows, getting into trouble with his brothers George and Tom, and teasing his sisters Christine, Alice, and Shelly. Sam had a soft heart and a generous spirit. He served in the National Guard until his honorable release in 1976 . He also served as a deputy sheriff and sheriff for Rich County. Sam had an entrepreneurial spirit, owning several businesses, including a packing plant and construction company, before he rediscovered the joy of his childhood and became a rancher and part owner of Yellowstone Ranch near Lander, WY. In his spare time, he enjoyed hunting, swimming, fishing, and snowmobiling. He and Rose Cox had two beautiful children, Megan and Benjamin. They enjoyed playing cards and chess as well as hunting, fishing, and just hanging out as a family. Sam had a boisterous, contagious laugh and there isn’t a child in his life that doesn’t have found memories of his playful spirit and good natured teasing. Sam passed away Oct. 26 2016 in Coolidge, AZ at the age of 66. He will be dearly missed by his daughter, Megan (Frank) Hernandez; his grandsons, Frank T. (Maria) Hernandez, Eddie (Chandi) Hernandez, and Colten Hernandez; and his great granddaughters, Cynthia, Kamiryn, and Benzleigh.

He is survived by his mother, Theda Weston; siblings George (Cathy) Weston, Tom (Vickie) Weston, Alice (Kent) Argyle, Shelly (El) Mettman; and brothers-in-law, Chuck Webb.
