He was educated in the Newport News, VA, Memphis, Tennessee and Hampton, Va., public school systems. Samari was a freshman at Hampton High School, Hampton, Va.
Samari loved people, and people loved Samari! His smile would light up a room, a kid that never met a stranger. Those that knew him loved him. He was a jokester, a prankster and a nerve wrecker...just happy, always happy. Where there was Samari there was fun. A very patient person, especially with his nieces and nephew who all adored him, a helping hand when needed. He was loved by many and truly will be missed.
He played baseball (little league) and football. Football is where his light shined the brightest! He was a member of Hampton Roads Hookies and while residing in Memphis he played with the Memphis Ravens.
