Samson Abdul Muhammad

Samson Abdul Muhammad, 78, of Searcy, Arkansas, was born to Emmitt and Sarah (Paskell) Johnson in New Edinburg, Arkansas on June 16, 1938. He departed this life on December 4, 2016.

Samson served his country in the United States Marine Corps. He was an entrepreneur who owned and enjoyed his landscape design business. In addition he was employed for many years by Dr. Porter Rodgers.
He was a lover of nature and had a passion for teaching and sharing wisdom with all that he came in contact with. He could teach any life lesson using a bonsai plant and anyone who came into contact with him was changed after experiencing his life lessons.

Samson married Maryam, his best friend and the love of his life, on November 4, 1962. He is survived by his wife, his brother, Emmitt Johnson, Jr., his sisters, Ivy Johnson, Doris Rainey, Genora Hall, his son, Omar Muhammad (Cindy), and his grandchildren, Shawnice, Frederick, Zakeel, Kayla, and his great grandson, Austin.

I, as do all my family, have warm and wonderful memories of Samson.
Mine in particular was when he used to help me with my horses. When I needed help, I knew just who to call. Samson was never flustered and had such a kind smile and encouraging words. It won't be the same without him.
May he rest in peace. Heaven must have needed a strong, and talented man. Love to you Mary and Omar.
