Samuel Carl Hooks
A funeral service for Samuel Carl Hooks, 78, will be held on October 21 at 2 p.m. at Hillcrest Cemetery with Rev. Paul Alford, Glenn Lane and Larry Johnson.
The family will receive the friends immediately after the service.
Mr. Hooks of Aynor went to his Savior on October 17, surrounded by his loving family.
Born July 29, 1943 in Horry County, he was the son of the late AD Hooks and Thelma Ray Hooks. He was a veteran of the United States Army and a proud member of the Bayboro Baptist Church.
A pious man, Carl loved Sunday because it meant he could worship in the house of the Lord.
He never met a stranger and exuded love and kindness in everything he did. He loved to read historical books and plant beautiful flowers around his house. His family was his greatest treasure and he loved nothing more than spending time with them.
In addition to his parents, Carl was predeceased by a sister, Alice Hooks Shelley; and two brothers, Eugene Hooks and William Hooks.
Carl is survived by his brothers, Wendell Hooks, Brad Hooks (Faye), JD Hooks (Kathy), Henry Hooks (Shirley), David Hooks (Teresa) and Michael Hooks; sisters, Julia Anderson (Wallace), Dinah Lane (Glenn), Bonnie Johnson and Pat Small (Randy); as well as several nieces and nephews, including special niece, Jade North, and special nephew, Dustin Small, and cousin, Betty Johnson.
