Samuel Lafayette “Sam” Poore III, 63, of Virginia Beach, passed away July 31, 2022. He went to be with the Lord, with family by his side, after a valiant battle with cancer.

Sam was one of a kind, affectionately referred to as “Big Daddy” and “Brother Monk Monk”. He grew up in Virginia Beach, attending Princess Anne High School and spending the majority of his adult life as a residential and commercial painter, owning his own business for decades. Sam had a magnetic personality, always quick with a joke and an arsenal of entertaining stories. He had a huge heart and never met a stranger.

Uncle Sammy was a very loving man with a huge heart. He would do anything for anybody in a moment’s notice. I still remember when I was younger Sammy would watch us, protect over us, and always made sure we had a great time. The thing I will remember most about Sammy was his ability to brighten someone’s day and make them laugh. He was the funniest person I’ve ever met in my life. I will cherish the times I spent with him throughout my life and can’t wait to see him again one day. I love you uncle Sammy.… Read more »

To The Family of Samuel (Sam), Judy sent me the obituary this morning, I am sorry to learn of his passing. May God be each of you in the coming days, and know that you will see him again over there along with others who have gone on before in a much better place than we are today. God bless each of you and take care of one another and please continue to be safe.
