Obituary for Samson Veillard

Samson Veillard, the son of Prudencia Staniclas and Orius Veillard (deceased) was born in Arcahaie, Haiti on July 18, 1931. Upon the untimely and early death of his father, Samson assumed the responsibility of caring and providing for his mother and his siblings. This experience would shape the hardworking family man he came to be. At the age of 25, while working as a construction worker in Artibonite, Haiti, he would catch a glimpse of a beautiful 19 year old, who captured his heart and soon became his bride. Saimphanie Veillard, whom he would give the pet-name “Dou”, would fulfill the vows she made to him, and faithfully remain by his side for 54 years. Seeking to provide a better life for his family, Samson migrated to Westbury, N.Y. in 1979. He worked as a Machine Operator at Uniflex for 22 years. After a long battle with cancer, the Lord would call him home on Wednesday, February 10, 2011 at the age of 79. A man devoted to his family, Samson leaves a legacy of love and peace. Admired by family and friends alike for his generosity, Samson gave unselfishly. He didn’t have much, but he shared what little he had with just about anyone in need. He was an advocate for justice, a peace-keeper, a sage, counselor, and comforter. Samson loved to laugh. He loved to please, and was rarely, if ever, critical of people. He didn't have an unkind bone in his body. Expounding on these values, in 2008, Samson came to accept Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. As he continued in his battle, a day wouldn’t go by where he wouldn’t ask a visiting friend or family member to join him in prayer. With all his might, he wanted to live and fought the cancer that robbed him of his life and robbed his family and friends of the most amazing man. Deeply loved and unforgettable, Samson will be greatly missed. Mourning his death:
