Leonard Sampson

July 24, 1934 — April 24, 2018

Leonard Lorenzo Sampson, 83, of East New Market, MD, departed this life on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at the Peninsula Regional Medical Center, Salisbury, MD.

He was born July 24, 1934, son of the late Jacob E. and Florence Camper Sampson. He was a graduate of F.D. Sinclair High School, Class of 1952.  In December, 1958, he was joined in Holy Matrimony to the “love of his life”, Marva Jackson.  From this union one daughter, Darlene was born.  Leonard is also the father of one son, Kenneth Elliott, Baltimore, MD.

Leonard loved his family and cherished their love.  His brothers and sisters built a great bond with each other from birth up to this present time.  He always had a sense of humor, even during his last days with us.

Leonard enjoyed company and would claim other people’s children as “His own.” When coming into his presence, your day was complete with wisdom, much knowledge, joy and laughter.  He contributed to the Faith Community Church, East New Market, MD, supporting and rendering service to the church when asked.

Leonard leaves to mourn and cherish memories to his wife of fifty-nine years, Marva J. Sampson; daughter, Darlene D. Sampson; son, Kenneth Elliott (Tamara); granddaughter, Lakeia Brice; nieces whom he helped raise, Faustine Outten (Norman), Glen Burnie, MD and Delphine Jackson, NY; three sisters, Mattie Thompson (James), Delores Henry (Daniel) and Mildred Symonette; two brothers, Jacob and Willie Sampson; two adopted daughters, Elnora Coleman and Pastor Alma Boulden (Charles), The Blake Family, Richard, Marsha, Betsy and Mr. & Mrs. Jock Luthy and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Frederick and Louis Sampson and one sister, Lillie Mae Sampson.

"May the work I’ve done speak for me; when I’m resting in my grave and there’s nothing that can be said; May the work I’ve done speak for me."
