Sammy Edward Oden

MIDLAND - Sammy Edward "Junior" Oden, 66 of Midland, died in the Midland Regional Medical Center Apr. 22, 2017. He was born Apr. 5, 1951, in Colorado City to Edward and Amber Wagner Oden. He was a man who enjoyed the finer things in life, whether it was traveling around the country, going to watch live performances in the theatre, or going to sporting events. On his trips he always made sure to take a camera and take lots of pictures. He especially enjoyed his trips to Colorado and the train trips to and from, where he would take in the scenery and enjoy looking at all the beauty that God created. When not traveling he could be found in the theatres in Midland, taking in a Rockhounds game, or at the Cotton Bowl which was a tradition he hadn't missed since 1985. He is survived by his life-partner of over 35 years and best friend Ron Grubbs of Midland; brother Tim Oden and wife Barbara of Westbrook; sister Maritha Blalock of Stanton; four nephews, three great nieces, great nephews and by many cousins and dear friends. He was preceded in death by his parents. A graveside service was Apr. 24 in the Westbrook Cemetery with Pastor Paul Smith of Calvary Baptist Church officiating. Arrangements have been entrusted to Kiker Seale Funeral Home.
