It is with a heavy heart that we pass along the death of a very long time supporter of Southern Southeastern, Sam Spruell. Sam, a farmer from north west Alabama was a huge supporter of the activities of Southern Cotton Growers over the years. He served in many capacities including President.
Sam was always a cut-up and no matter how serious an issue could find some light in the conversation… even when he was mad or didn’t like the way things were going. He had a keen understanding of numbers and could figure just about anything on a pocket calculator including the most complex farm bill changes. He knew exactly the impact on his farm.
He always spoke from the heart and you always knew where you stood with Sam. Sam passed away on January 7 after a lengthy illness. Sam will be missed.
