Samuel Galaviz

September 9, 1981 -

April 1, 2021

Sam was born September 9th, 1981 to Daniel Galaviz and Vickie Holderman of Medford. He spent most of his life here in the Rogue Valley, where he met his wife, Jamie Galaviz. In March of 2019, Sam and Jamie were married after 12 years of raising their girls together. Sam worked for Lithia for 21 years, beginning as a lot attendant for Nissan, then working for Lithia corporate offices, and finally being promoted to Used Car Manager for Lithia Toyota.

Sam's passions in life were simple: family and sports. Whether it was a family barbeque, camping trip, golf tournament, or a beloved Ducks game, Sam brought his own larger-than-life personality and zest for life to each and every moment.

Sam is preceded in death by his father, Daniel. He is survived by his wife Jamie; his daughters Jocelyn, Madison, and Allison; his mother and step-father Vickie and Tim Holderman; his grandchildren Izekiel and Ke'Alohilani; his siblings Jason Smith, Chantell Manninen, Daniel Galaviz, Danielle Conte, John Galaviz, their spouses, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Sam was an incredible husband, father, son, "Pop-Pop", brother, uncle, and friend. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Sam on April 10th, 2021 at 4pm at White's Farm; 4017 West Main Street in Medford, Oregon. Sam will be interred in a private ceremony at Memory Gardens in Medford.
