In memory of
Charles "Tim" Samora
The Man, The Myth, The Legend. ""The Man"" Tim could have been a Myth but became a Legend on Nov. 11, 2016, in Albuquerque. Tim passed suddenly due to health complications. His love for God truly took him to heaven. He was born Sept. 17, 1966, in Farmington to Ben Sr. and Dorothy Samora. Tim had a love for coffee and sweets, he made sure he had both every day. A member of SMW Local Union 49, he was a master sheet metal Journeyman, he grew up learning from the best, his dad. Tim lived life backward, at a later age he went on to get his GED in 2011. He then attended SJ College and in 2015 received his Associates Degree in Applied Science. He was truly proud of his accomplishments. At the young age of 50, he lived life to the fullest. He always made sure to tell his family he loved them, no matter what! He knew each day may be the last. He loved with all his heart and was beyond proud of his grandson, ""Little Man"" Nixon. His Son and daughters were his world, he would go to the moon and back for them. He fell in love with his wife ""Sweetie"" 23 years ago, it was love at first sight for him! In sickness and in health, he cared for his parents and in laws like no other! He had a special place in his heart for his mother and as his fathers' caregiver, he loved him unconditionally. Being the youngest in the family, he had a special bond with each of his brothers and sisters. He had a nickname for all his nephews and nieces. He was an outstanding man, always was a MacGyver when it came down to figure out and fixing things. He loved to tell stories and get stoned when he would find someone to listen to him. WE LOVE YOU! Tim was preceded in death by his mother, Dorothy Samora; father-in-laws, Steve Garcia and Leo Martinez; sister, Katie. He is survived by his wife, Stephannie ""Sweetie""; son, Timothy ""That's Why"" Samora; daughters, Brandy ""Mort"" (Daniel) Castel De Oro and Katie ""Miko"" Samora; father, Ben Samora Sr.; mother-in-law, JoAnn Martinez; brothers, Ben Jr. (Toni) Samora, Joseph (Kim) Samora and Chris (Carmen) Aragon; sisters, Kathy Milazzo, Teresa (David) Padilla, Annette (Sam) Cordova and Anna Kerr; and four grandchildren.
