Samuel was born June 12, 1974, in Litchfield, the son of Steven and Connie (Myllykangas) Rossman. He grew up in the South Haven area, and graduated from Kimball High School in 1992, where he had been an active participant in Kimball Cubs High School boys’ sports, along with volunteer coaching for the younger girls.

He was baptized and confirmed in the Christian faith, and was a member of the Lake Union Covenant Church in rural South Haven at the time of his death.

Samuel was united in marriage to Crystal Fraser March 10, 1999, in Minneapolis. The couple made their home Kimball.

Samuel had been employed for several years at Hutchinson Technology Inc., Fingerhut in St. Cloud, and for the past several years, had been employed at Malco Products Inc. in Annandale.

He enjoyed meeting new people and could always start up a conversation, and enjoyed holidays and special events with family and friends.

Samuel was a great practical joker, always pulling your leg and giving you a hard time. He had a passion for collecting super hero comic books, car shows, and NASCAR racing. He was a sports fan and could often be found watching football, baseball, hockey, and basketball.

Samuel loved football, coached JV football, and was a member of the Kimball Cubs High School football coaching staff from 2004 until 2014, when he had to resign due to his health.

He will be missed by his family and his many friends.

Samuel is survived by his two children, Ariel (Kirk) Pramann, and Kyrie Rossman, both of Kimball; parents, Connie and Steven Rossman of South Haven; sister Jaclyn Rossman and significant other, Pete Flatten of Kimball; sister-in-law Bonnie Rossman of St. Cloud; and several nieces, nephews, aunt, uncles, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by a sister, Jennifer (Rossman) Johnson; a brother, Patrick Rossman; maternal grandparents, Gordon and Lillian Myllykangas; and paternal grandparents, Edwin and Marie Rossman.
