Samuel William Munoz, 16, of Howard Lake passed away Sunday, October 14th, 2007 in Minneapolis. Sam was the beloved son of Kristine and Terry Munoz and brother to Amanda and Joshua Munoz. Though Sam spent just 16 years with us on this earth, his life brought great joy to those who knew him. Sam was and incredible son, brother and friend. His zeal for life and deep faith in Christ touched so many. Sam loved people.
God blessed Sam with a tender and compassionate heart that enabled him to love others and care for people in difficult situations. Sam recently said that his favorite place in the world was Guatemala where he spent time the last two summers serving children of Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos, a home for abandoned and orphaned children. Sam was a solid student who aspired to be a Pediatrician. Sam felt that being a doctor would give him a great opportunity to serve God by serving children locally and abroad. Sam loved baseball and had set a goal of earning a college scholarship as a ballplayer.
We will miss Samuel tremendously. We take comfort in knowing he is now in the arms of our Heavenly Father. We are grateful for the time that we have all shared with Sam who lived his life well.
