Timothy Franklin Sampson, 56 known as Timmy of Cambridge Maryland departed this life on Thursday June 13, 2019 at University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Dorchester in Cambridge. He was born on Thursday June 28, 1962 in Cambridge to Jeanette Loretta Elliott Sampson and the late Herman Franklin Sampson.
As a young child Timmy was raised and educated in Cambridge where he spent all his life including a solid foundation in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Growing up, he attended Zion Baptist Church. He had such a hobby for electronics- realistically he probably had as much an inventory of video cameras, TV’s, VCR’s and other related devices than the manufacturer itself. It was nothing for Timmy to take apart, fix, and reassemble anything electronic.
Though a man of few words he was a Jokester in his own right. He loved to have clean fun with the people he was around whether it be telling his sisters he smelled them before he saw them or asking whoever he was talking to, have you had your soap and water today, or telling Cierra he knew she was rich because of all of the working she does. There was not a conversation he had that he didn’t mention his granddaughters, they were his pride and joy.
Timmy made several memories like the soap and water jokes, the McDonalds visits with extra extra onions on his double cheeseburgers to be cherished by; his daughter, Cierra Marie Sampson of Cambridge; granddaughters: Jalayah, Darnjanae and Cierra N. Sampson; his mother Jeanette Elliott Sampson (Dwight) of Federalsburg; his siblings: Kenneth Elliott (Tamra), Yolonda Dommon (Anthony), Janet Cephas (Lance), Constance “Connie” Evans (Glenn), Herman Sampson Jr., Dwight Sampson (April) all of Cambridge; 14 nieces and nephews, 20 great nieces and nephews; aunts and uncles: Constance Lamberson (Wardell) of Ft. Washington, Michael Elliott (Glee) of Baltimore, Rodney Elliott (Lilly) of Cambridge; his father and mother-in-law, William and Hazel Ellis, and a host of other in-laws, and cousins, other relatives, and friends. He is also survived by extended family including a special friend, Shelia Blake, and the entire Bradford House Community where he was also known as “Spoony.”
He was preceded in death by his father, Herman F Sampson Sr., his wife Louise “Linette” Ellis Sampson and his grandmother Elsie who he had a special bond with.
Throughout all of life’s ordeals, Timmy remained consistent and kept the thought- “I’m ok, I won’t complain”
