Samuel Etheredge Death – Obituary, Funeral, Cause Of Death
My friend Samuel Etheredge died last night from Covid. We worked together for years at DSS. Working at DSS is like being in the military in some ways: you see things that “civilians” will never understand and it forms a bond that lasts forever. Sam’s been in the hospital for a few weeks. I have not said anything because his family wanted to keep things private, but behind the scenes “Team DSS” was busy praying.
Sam was one of those people who was larger than life. Always doing a million things. Always had a smile and a laugh. The best “work husband” a girl could ever have. I’ll never forget us going to the craziest funeral ever with six foster kids. We took our badges off so not only were we trying to wrangle six teenage drama queens falling down in the aisles, I had all the ladies at the AME church glaring at me thinking Sam and I were dating. (Let’s just say when the PREACHER giving the eulogy says, “We’ve all done some good and we’ve all done some bad. X did more bad. Let’s move on”— you know you are at a DSS funeral.)
Whenever one of us would get upset at work, he’d always tell us “Every day no kid dies, we win.” I still think about that at least once a week. We really needed to hear it some days.
Just weeks ago Sam was giving me hell about letting the shih tzus ride in the Corvette. He thought I wasn’t respecting the car. (Of course he drove a teal camero back in the day so no room to talk! We both loved to drive fast and knew every speed trap in SC. Thank goodness we worked at DSS back before cell phones, because we could make a Chevy Impala FLY thru the Pee Dee.)
I just can’t believe he’s gone.
