Timothy (Timmy) Samuels

Dunmore, PA December 23, 1985 ~ August 7, 2018 Date of Service: August 12, 2018

Timothy (Timmy) Samuels, 32, of Dunmore, lost his long, hard-fought battle with depression on Aug. 7.

Timmy was born on Dec. 23, 1985, in Scranton. He was the son of Edmund and Maribeth McGraw Samuels. Timmy was a 2004 graduate of Dunmore High School and earned his degree in engineering from Penn State University. He worked at Tobyhanna Army Depot, spending time traveling the world with the Department of Defense. He was currently employed as a relay test technician at PPL. 

Timmy deeply cared for his beloved dog, Tex, spending most of his spare time with him. Timmy was very passionate about cars, family, peanut butter cups and, most recently, woodworking, crafting tables and countertops. He could build you a flamethrower, a potato gun, a mini-snowman, fix your car and wire your house and never ask you for anything in return. He put so much passion into everything he did and then some. Timmy was the sweetest, kindest, smartest and most loving, compassionate friend to all who met him. Loyalty ran through his veins. He was always making sure that everyone was OK and allowing people to succeed through his own sacrifice. The world was a better place because he was in it. He will missed by everyone who had the opportunity to meet him. He was truly one of a kind.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his sister, Heather and companion, John; his brother, Nick Ranella and fiancée, Alyssa; his maternal grandparents, James and Jacqulyn McGraw; aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews; and countless friends. 

He was preceded in death by his infant brothers, Eddie and Jimmy; paternal grandparents, Edmund F. Samuels and Ann Marie Scaccia; cousins, Jack Froese, Harriet and Mary Hughes; and nieces, Everleigh and Hadleigh.

A service will be held Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home Inc., 318 E. Drinker St., Dunmore.

Friends may call from 2 to 5 p.m. at the funeral home. Interment is private at the convenience of the family. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the donor's favorite charity that does your heart good.

I read about Timmy this morning in the Times. I was so saddened and distraught that such a young life who was suffering is gone. Though I never had the good fortune to know Timmy, my heart goes out to his family. I live for hope for the many thousands like Timmy and I. God bless you all.
