Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Psalm 116:15
Sam was born on December 03, 1949 in Houston, Texas. He was the second of four children born to Fidel Meza Mireles and Alice Rodriguez Mireles who were Native Texans whose families have a long history in the State of Texas which he loved. When Sam was 19 years old he came to Galena Park, Texas, where he met the Reverend Clark E Lott, Sr. PhD.; pastor of Grace Tabernacle Church. His life would never be the same. That year he met the Lord and was Baptized in Jesus Name. He also met his devoted wife Sandra Rone Mireles. They were married on September 09, 1970 in Galena Park. Sam and Sandra were also members of Life Tabernacle Church under Pastor James L. Kilgore for many years.
Sam was trained to be a skilled draftsman who began his career at Dow Chemical. He loved drawing and used these skills for the rest of his life in his career as a General Contractor. He shared his love of building with his three sons, who consulted him on the finer points of building projects that came up through the years.
