Alex Sampson Jr., also known as “Cooter”, was born on June 21, 1944, to the late Alex Sampson, Sr. and Leona Harrison-Sampson. Alex was processed in death in 2013 by his wife Betty Mitchell-Sampson. Also proceeding his death is his brother David Sampson, his sister Mattie Lee Williams, and one daughter Margaret Sampson.
Alex Sampson attended and graduated A.L. Corbett class of 1963. At an early age, he accepted Jesus in his life to be his Lord and personal savior. He was a man of God and loved to serve the Lord. Earlier in life, he joined Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church. He later joined the church choir, “The Voices of Praise”, and then branched out on his own with his own group, “The Voices of Faith.” Our dad loved to sing. Almost everywhere he went, he was requested to sing a song. His favorite song he sang almost everywhere he went was “If you let God come into your life you know that he will wash you whiter than snow”. Alex was employed by Wagener MFG (Wagener, SC), Michelin (Lexington, SC), Jennings Sanitation (Wagener, SC), and KMS (West Columbia, SC).
Our dad was a fun and loving man who always liked peace. He leaves to cherish his memories: his children, his daughters Joanne Sampson-Ginyard, LaWanda Sampson, Chandra Harrison, his sons Kevin Mitchell, Angelo McCutcheon, Jason Williams, Antrelle Harrison, and Tryone Gilbert, his sisters Min. Delores Sampson, Brenda Sampson, Willie Mae Brown, and one brother Norris Sampson, two best friends Donnie Leach and Little Adrian Clark.
We, the Sampsons, also would like to thank Lexington Medical Center, MSA Hospice, Lexington Cardiology, Lexington Nephrology, and Right At Home. We would also like to thank everyone for their calls, texts, visits, prayers, and everyone that took part in taking care of our father. You will always have a special place in our hearts.
