Samuel’s Story

Samuel Florograph

Samuel gave freely and frequently and had every intention of making the world a better place for everyone. Sam gave his time, money, smile, humor, compassion, empathy and ultimately, himself. Even as a young person he was passionate about how one could continue to help others even in death. You see, when Sam was in middle school, he had written a paper about the impact of organ donation. In the years since his passing his family has learned that through bone and tissue donation, a part of Samuel Lee Becker lives on in 109 recipients.

Celebrating the gift of donation, Samuel Lee Becker was honored with a memorial floragraph portrait on the 2022 Donate Life Rose Parade Float.
