      Sammy was born June 12, 1935, in Voss, Texas the son of the late Isaac and Mary (Owen) Pate. He graduated from Mozelle High School in 1953 as the highest ranking boy in his class. He played football, basketball, and was active in the 4-H program where he was the Gold Star boy one year. He raised sheep on the home ranch in addition to working in the oil fields in Coleman County and the surrounding counties. He married Lois Cullins in 1955, and they had 3 children, Stephen, Jean, and Leona. He served in the U. S. Army from 1958 until 1960.

Sammy continued his cattle operation until the end of 2013 when he had to sell his cattle due to health problems.
