Samson Edward` Bellack

June 7, 1982 ~ January 4, 2021 (age 38)


Samson Edward Bellack was truly a light in everyone’s lives.  He was a great inspiration to people who knew him and had a knack for making others feel good about themselves. Samson took his native name The Provider very seriously and was always ready to provide to the best of his ability. He had a smile that was contagious and shared with everyone he met.  He loved being surrounded by the woods and the mountains, which he considered his second home.  He did just about everything there, hunting, fishing, hiking, and gathering his favorite fruits: wild blackberries and huckleberries.  Once gathered, his mother would make his favorite pies and he would savor the delicious wild flavors.  Sam enjoyed fishing with his cousins at the Duwamish River. He was a carpenter by trade and helped part time building the casino and a few homes on the plateau. He had a love for dogs, and they always seemed to be near him, but his greatest love was reserved for his son Gavin.  Sadly, Samson died on January 4, 2021 at his home in Auburn.  He was 38 years old.  He is loved, missed, and remembered by his son Gavin Bellack of Bonney Lake, WA; parents Edward and Valerie Bellack; and siblings Jillian and George Bellack. I’m devastated to have to share that my brother, Samson Bellack, has passed away. He was one of my closest friends. This hurts me to the core and I’m still trying to process it. I can’t begin to tell you what a positive impact he had on me. He always pushed me to the limits of my abilities and tried to show me that I was capable of exceeding those limitations. We did everything together. We used to go off-roading, hunting, fishing, hiking, swimming/floating the river. Even if I wasn’t physically capable of doing some of the things that we did, he would still teach me so I would have the knowledge to teach others. He taught me a lot about native culture and helped me grasp a better understanding of who I am. He saved my life on more than one occasion. He always tried to remind me to smile even when I didn’t feel like it. He always tried to teach me to lift up others and put out that positive energy into the world. He is one of those few friends that would have your back through it all. He always tried to lift up the people around him. He was one of the few people that believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. He used to tell me that I was going to be a big star on the stage someday. He was very proud of my accomplishments. The hardest part about working on a career and establishing a place in life is sometimes you grow apart from the people that matter the most to you. I’ve spent the last few years focused on my work and I’ve allowed it to take a precedence over what truly matters, which is family and friendship. It is moments like these that give a painful reminder of that. 2020 forced me to stay home and one of the few blessings that came from it was that I was able to reunite with him. We went to the river a few times over the summer and it felt like old times. We spoke on New Year’s Eve and talked about hanging out this week. I wish that I would’ve had the chance to see him one more time. We may not be blood related but we are family forever. I miss you so much Sam. I love you brother! I don’t have too many pictures of him and I together. I wish I did. What I can say is, the reason we don’t is because we lived so much in the moment, we didn’t stop to take a picture of it. I feel like that is a lesson of life we should all learn. Life is to be lived not documented. These pictures I have of him are from when I performed at Hempstalk 2015. We took the Amtrak down to Portland and toured around on the Lyon Pride bus. It meant a lot to me that I was able to include him on what he said I was destined to be, but truthfully, I would trade all of my life achievements away just to have my brother back. I would do anything to trade places with him right now.  Rest in paradise Sam. Thank you for all that you did for me. May the memory of your legacy of greatness live forever. Whoop whoop! ❤️
