My deepest condolences to the Mancillas’ family on the passing of Sam. I knew Sam for many years both from working at the State Comptroller’s office and from the times we shared playing softball. Sam was ‘good people’ and I will remember the many great times and good memories we had. May you rest in peace my friend.

I am so saddened to her about the passing of Sam. I worked with Sam at the Comptroller's Office and have known him for over 30 years. Not only were we co-workers, but our bond went beyond that because we played softball together for many of those years that we worked at the Comptroller's Office. Sam was often the organizer/coach for our teams (we'd call ourselves the Enforcers or Revenuers). He loved the game and in his "hey-day" Sam was one of the best players I ever played with. He played shortstop and could place the ball where ever he wanted to! Our games were always a social event since Sam liked to bring his little BBQ pit and cook the guys sausage links that we'd eat after the game. Over the years we exchanged Christmas cards every year even after we both retired. I sensed something may have been wrong this past December when my card to him was returned. May Sam rest in peace, he will forever be remembered as a great guy who would do anything for you if he could.

I knew Sam when he attended New Covenant Fellowship in Austin. He was a kind and compassionate man. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
