Samuel James Lester South
Samuel James Lester South was born in Clarinda, Iowa on June 2nd, 1956. He died on November 6, 2019 at Cypress Grove Rehabilitation Center in Evansville, Indiana.
Sam could never pass up a scenic route during a drive, a quiet pond for fishing, a cold morning for hunting, or telling a good (maybe a little exaggerated) story. He didn't know a stranger and gained many friendships along his journey.
Sam is survived by his two children, Ryanne (Caleb) Shatava and Michael (Jodi) South; along with five grandchildren, Lucas, Aiden, Elizabeth (Shatava), Kinley and Aubrey (South); and his brother David South. He will also be remembered by many nieces, nephews, neighbors, and friends. He is preceded in death by his mother and father (Harold and Mary South), his sister Jane Andrew, and his brother John South.

Memorials can be directed to his daughter or son at 522 N. 17th St. Clarinda, IA 51632
