In 1962 Sammie relocated to White Plains, New York to join his mother and sisters, Marylou “Dziko” Emu (Joseph) and (preceded) Janie Mae Leisir (Ralph)

When he arrived in New York he worked as a stock person for Macy's for 9 years. He was a proud employer for AT&T for 34 years. Sammie had an entrepreneurial spirit and owned “Sammie’s Cleaning Service” for 15 years.

On November 26, 1980 he was joined in holy matrimony to his beloved wife Sandra Bowen. They have resided in Elmsford, NY since 1987 where they built a home together and created wonderful memories.
