Samuel "Sammy" Medrano Obituary

Samuel "Sammy" Medrano, age 43, passed away on March 10, 2024, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Born on September 7, 1980, in Corpus Christi, Texas, Sammy was a radiant beacon of kindness and enthusiasm throughout his life.

Sammy was the beloved husband of Phoungeune Lisa Medrano; with whom he shared a life full of love, laughter, and cherished memories. He was the cherished son of Raul Sr. and Herlinda Medrano, a brother who set an example of strength and compassion for Raul Medrano Jr., and the brother who shared an unbreakable bond with his sisters, Rosalinda “Rosie” Ordonez (Eric) and Yvette M. Quijas (Dominique). Sammy also leaves his nieces and nephews behind to cherish his memory; Raul III Medrano, Richard Medrano, Benny Lozano Jr, Laura Lozano, John David Lozano, Joseph Quijas, and Constance Quijas.

Sammy's passion for life was evident in his love for fishing and music. He could often be found by the water's edge, rod in hand, waiting for the next big catch. A loyal Cowboys fan, Sammy's spirited energy was contagious, especially on game days when his enthusiasm could light up the room.

Those who knew Sammy will remember him as the epitome of friendliness. His selfless nature was apparent to all, as he frequently placed the needs of others before his own. His spirited demeanor was a source of joy and inspiration, and his absence will leave a void in the hearts of those who loved him.

Sammy's legacy is one of unwavering kindness and generosity. He lived life with a purpose, spreading happiness and forging friendships that stood the test of time. His spirit will continue to live on in the memories of his family and friends, and his influence will endure through the countless lives he touched with his warm smile and generous heart.

As we bid farewell to Sammy, we celebrate a life well-lived, a journey marked by genuine connections and selfless love. His passing is not an end but a transition to a place where the fishing is plentiful, the music never stops, and the spirit of camaraderie endures forever.

A service to honor the life and legacy of Samuel "Sammy" Medrano will be held at a later date, where family and friends will gather to share stories, laughter, and tears, commemorating a man who was truly one of a kind. Sammy's memory will be eternally cherished, as he continues to guide us with the light of his spirit.
