Samuel Louis Boone was born to Kenneth Boone and Paralee Boone on February 16th 1961 in the Cook County Hospital, Chicago Illinois.

Samuel or “Louie” as he was lovingly known by his family, graduated from Thornton High School in Chicago, Illinois, and went on to serve faithfully and honorably in the Armed Forces of the United States of America, retiring from the Navy on the 1st day of July 2005. 

Samuel’s professional journey as a civilian started at the Newport News Shipyard and in 2003 began to serve at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. As he pursued his professional discipline in the field of Engineering, and with much discipline and dedication to his craft, Samuel was steadfast and positioned himself to be promoted from Nuclear Machinist to Nuclear Inspector.

Samuel was born again on October 2nd, 1988 when he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. This is when Samuel became a “Man of God” and this was when his life passions were ignited and so began his Christian walk, work and labor of love. Samuel’s ministry of love was in street preaching, handing out gospel tracts, Saturday morning “door knocking” visitation, and 15 years of pouring into men through his Jail Ministry at the Norfolk Jail. Samuel graduated from Liberty Live School of Ministry in June of 2022, he was overjoyed.    

The impact of Samuel’s life has been expressed by his closest family members as having shined so bright with a magnetic passion for his family. Truly a larger than life personality, exemplary man, funny, energetic, dramatic and loving with an infectious smile. He loved basketball, pouring into people, taking everyone out to lunch and his King James Bible. 

Samuel leaves behind to forever cherish his memory his God given wife Elizabeth (Lisa) Batista-Boone, his beloved daughter Xiomara Boone-Hernandez, and his step-sons Ramon and Brandon Figueroa. He also leaves behind to celebrate his memory his brother James,  sister Jeraldine, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, brothers/sisters in Christ, friends and neighbors. All of which he loved and in return loved him genuinely. What a love story!     

The family of Samuel Boone will have a private visitation amongst themselves. On Friday, October 14th, there will be a reception hour from 10:00-11:00 AM at the Liberty Live Church in Greenbrier Chesapeake with church doors opening at 10:00 AM. Funeral services are to follow at 11:00 AM. A private graveside for Samuel will be held at a later date at Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery, Suffolk, Virginia. Please contact Colony Beach Florist (757) 490-3533 to make flower tributes. The service at the church will be live streamed, viewers can view the stream by clicking HERE and proceeding to the Greenbrier Campus stream.

Even as we mourn the loss of this Great Man of God Samuel Boone from our presence on October 06, 2022 at 4:20p.m., we simultaneously celebrate and rejoice in knowing that he transitioned and is in heaven safe and secure for eternity in the arms of Jesus. 

This is not the end…
