Samuel Paul Jimenez Jr., 54, Sparta, died April 18, 2003 in his home. He was born April 20, 1948, in Tampa, Fla., the son of Samuel Paul Jimenez and Orchid Stewart. Survivors include his mother, Orchid Stewart, Ozark; his father, Samuel Paul Jimenez, Sr., Miami, Fla.; two daughters, Samantha Broomfield, Miami, Fla., and Heather Elbert, Silver Springs, Md.; a step-son, Kenny Glossip, Springfield; three grandchildren, Khameche Broomfield, Tahjee Broomfield, and Jaquaid Broomfield; a sister, Orchid Soller and husband Lloyd, Ozark; three nieces, Lori Ann Kaufman, Lisa Marie Hall, and Lyn Janice Grisham; a nephew, Lloyd Ralph Soller, Jr.; three great nephews, Curtis Lee Hall, Blake Christopher Soller, and Kyle Joseph Soller; and many, many friends. A son, Eric Dean Jimenez, preceded him in death. As a young man, Jimenez served his country in the U.S. Army during the Viet Nam War and was a very proud member of the 82nd Airborne. Throughout his life, he was blessed with many friends, who not only shared his zest for life and his passion for Harley Davidson Motorcycles. His life was highlighted by several cross-country road trips. With his saddlebags packed tight and sleeping bag strapped to the back of his bike, he would set out to feel the wind on his face and hear the methodical rumble of his bike. While he often sought out magnificent destinations, those who knew him well understood, it wasn't just the destination, but the call of the open road ahead that always seemed to be singing his name. Jimenez had a unique quality that enabled him to live his life as a free spirit, in his very own way. He will be dearly missed and never forgotten as he rests in peace.
