In Loving Memory of Mr. William Sample, 3/1/47 – 3/1/20

Mr. William with the late Barry Kranich

No Limits Eastern Shore is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our dear friend and longtime No Limits member William Henry Sample. Mr. William, as he was known to us, left this world on the same day that he entered it, on March 1.

William Sample was a kind and thoughtful man who loved the Lord with all his heart. He loved listening to gospel music and he had a beautiful voice that he would lift in praise. He will be very missed, may he rest in peace.

Please enjoy a video of William singing one of his favorite songs at No Limits a few years back.
