Samuel loved working on the farm with his amigos, and his friendly demeanor and unwavering dedication earned him the respect and affection of his colleagues.
Samuel was a man of many interests, all of which reflected his love for the simple pleasures of life. He loved fishing and hunting, and he deeply valued the time spent with his family and friends during these activities. Samuel's love for music was well known, and he enjoyed listening to a diverse range of genres including Mexican, Country, and Gospel music. His love for these genres reflected his Guatemalan heritage and his appreciation for the culture of his adopted country.
Samuel Bartolon was a man who embodied friendliness. His warm smile, hearty laugh, and genuine interest in others made him a joy to be around. He was the kind of man who could strike up a conversation with anyone and make them feel like they had been friends for years.
