Samuel Broughton Deal, 94, passed away peacefully on the morning of May 16th, 2017 at his home in Leesville, SC.  He was preceded in death by his wife of 55 years, Patricia Oliver Deal.  

Sam was a devoted husband, father, and brother.  Son of the late Samuel Caldwell Deal and Anna Dorn Deal, he was born in the Callison Community of Greenwood County, SC in 1922.  After graduating Clemson College with a degree in Chemistry in 1943, Mr. Deal joined the U.S. Army, where he fought in the Battle of the Bulge, receiving both the Bronze Star and a Purple Heart.  He retired as a Lt. Colonel with the U.S. Army Reserves. 

Sam received his Master’s Degree from Ohio State University and pursued his career as a Chemical Engineer for RCA in Lancaster, PA.  During his 40 year tenure at RCA, he obtained numerous patents in the development of color picture tube coatings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

He enjoyed his family, was an avid reader, coin collector and family historian.  His other passions were traveling and ushering at his local church.
