Lewis Andrew “Sam” Gallion, age 86, of Hancock, Md., passed away on Thursday, July 5, 2018 at the Meritus Medical Center, near Hagerstown, Md.

Born March 10, 1932, in Berkeley Springs, W.Va., he was the son of the late Charles G. and Goldie (Harden) Gallion.

He attended school in Berkeley Springs.

He was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, serving from 1956 through 1958. Following his military service, he was employed with Hepburn Orchards, in Hancock, until his retirement.

Sam enjoyed watching baseball, old westerns, and country music shows on the television; and taking rides into the country looking for deer; but he especially enjoyed his family visits on Sundays.

He is survived by his loving granddaughter, Angela McBee, whom he raised, and her husband, Derek, of Hancock; a step-son, David Leach and his wife, Rose, of Texas; one sister Mildred, eight grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; and many very special people who welcomed him into their family.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Lorraine Gallion, who died in 1988; his special companion of thirty years, Jessie L. Bishop Gallion; three brothers, Charles, Emerson and James; five sisters,  Hester, Nonnie, Thelma, Hazel and Helen; a step-son, Thomas Leach; a daughter, Gloria (Gallion) Anderson; and a step-grandson, David Leach, Jr.

The family will receive friends on Sunday, July 8, 2018, from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m., at the Grove Funeral Home, 141 W. Main St., Hancock, and for one hour prior to the funeral services.
