Samuel Rain Dokka passed away at the age of 25 years old on Wednesday, May 17, 2023. Though he left this world far too soon and it will never be the same without him, he left this world for a better place. He was a humorous, loving son, brother, father to his dog and friend to many.
He will be missed everyday by his father, Aubrey Dokka, his stepmother, Jessica Dokka, his mother, Chandra Robinson, his brothers and sisters, Hannah, DJ, Jacob and Kia, his step-sisters, Sky and Hannah, his Uncles and Aunts, Greg and Robin Dokka, Gerald and Kim Dokka, Gary Dokka, Michelle Dokka, and many friends who loved him.
Sam was a kind, gentle soul who made friends everywhere he went. His kind heart would light up a room and lift your spirits. Sam loved all animals and was a loving father to his faithful companion, Milo. Sam loved crystals and going on rockhounding adventures. He loved musical festivals, nature, art and spending time with the people he loved. Sam was recently baptized at the Cody Cowboy Church in Cody Wyoming by his pastor and mentor, Pat and Renee Alphin.
Since Sam's passing, many have written about how special he was and how fortunate they were to have known him. They reminisce about his ever-present smile and the warmth, depth and intelligence behind it.
Most of all, they recall the sheer pleasure of his company, how good he made them feel, how free they were to be themselves around him and how much they will miss him. Sam cared about people in the purest way. He loved them for who they were and because he wished the best for them, and without asking anything in return he would give you the shirt off his back. Those who knew Sam, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.
He will be missed dearly by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
