Michael L. “Mike” Sams, 54, of Ashland, passed away unexpectedly Friday May 1, 2020 in the Avita Health System Galion Hospital.

He was born November 26, 1965 in Cleveland, OH, the son of the late Robert and Bunny (Hazzlewood) Sams.

Michael received his education in Cleveland, eventually relocating to Ashland County. He was a landscaper by trade, and previously had worked for the city of Cleveland as a groundskeeper and in waste management.

Michael was a true history buff. He could tell you the history about anything around you. He loved to work on cars of all makes and models. But most of all he loved spending time with his grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Wendy (Gould) Sams, to whom he was married July 20, 1983. One daughter; Brandi (Aaron) Coffy of Ashland, three sons; Michael (Kimberly) Sams and Mark Sams of Ashland, and Brandon Gould of Mansfield. Six grandchildren; Hayden and Mason Sams, Zephyrus Meadows, Kristen and Emma Coffy, and Braxtyn Gould. One sister; Ann Sailer of Cleveland, and two brothers; Robert (Diane) Sams of Galion, and John Sams of Montana.

Per Michael’s wishes there will be no services. Expressions of sympathy can be made to the family by visiting the funeral home’s website at

We are sorry for the family's loss regarding Mike's passing. We hope that Mike's indelible impression will be imprinted on the lives of the people he touched forever. We hope that the legacy Mike leaves encourages all who knew him to laugh often, look for the small joys in life, and never take people for granted. We are grateful for the little time we knew him. We pray peace for the family during this time. -Brent and Chris Coffy
