Samuel August Romeis was born in Elmore, Wisconsin on Jan. 30, 1915. He was the last of six children born to Rev. Sigmund and Bertha (Schmidt) Romeis. He was raised in a loving family where Christ was loved, honored, and worshipped.
Sam and his widowed mother moved to Sheboygan in 1928 and attended Ebenezer Reformed Church where he was confirmed and was very active. He graduated from Sheboygan High School in 1933 and attended Lakeland College. He was a Boy Scout Troop leader and also active in the German Brotherhood Band, playing the trumpet. He also played piano and would sing occasionally at weddings.
Sam served in the U.S. Army during WWII on campaigns through France, Belgium and Germany with the 34th Signal Construction Battalion. After Germany surrendered in 1945, his outfit was transferred to the Philippines in preparation for the invasion of Japan.
In 1946 he married Esther Befus of Sheboygan and they had two adopted children: Sam and Kay. Esther preceded him in death.
Sam was self-employed and operated gas stations/auto repair shops in several locations around Sheboygan, the last one being in the 2100 block of N. 18th St.
Sincere thanks to the staff of Sunny Ridge, 2nd floor West, for their kind, tender care of Sam and the Aurora Medical Hospice Care staff who made his final 3 weeks comfortable and his passing peaceful.
A memorial service will be held Monday, March 19 at 11:00 a.m. at the Evangelical Free Church, 1710 N 15th St. Pastors John MacDonald and Bennet Anderson will officiate.
A memorial fund has been established in his name for Gospel For Asia.

Sam will be remembered by all who knew him as a kind, quiet, gentle, unassuming man who would never cheat a customer and would always go the extra mile to help someone out. His sterling character was always evident as he lived out the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
