Sam Spratt | Morris Nilsen Funeral Chapel

October 17, 1995 - May 19, 2021

Samuel Andrew Spratt

Beloved son, brother and friend, age 25, of Richfield. Sam was crazy smart, handsome, funny, incredibly loveable and a joy to be around. His presence brought wonderful things to wherever he was.. He was loved by so many people, just for who he was. The dog whisperer, the baby whisperer, the young man who it was a joy to watch eat, if nothing else for the sheer astonishment of where did it all go? He was taken from us way too soon and will be deeply missed every second of every day. Survived by mom, Jeanne Spratt; dad, Michael Spratt, brothers, Ryan Spratt and Charlie " Duck" (Jess) Spratt; loyal fur-baby, Bandit; fur-niece Lilo; fur-nephew, Luka; Colorado family; work family at Omni Logistics; and numerous relatives and friends. Preceded in death by Gisela Hardie.

  2. Kellan A Gill says:

    Sam was truly a great friend to me we had some of the most epic comic book and anime conversations that led to the Deep philosophical long drawn-out talks about life I will forever treasure those times love you Sam rest in power

    • Taylore Leviton says:

      I didn’t know Sam Spratt that well but he always brought joy to those around him, his friends would get so excited when he entered class in high school, he was nice to those around him even if they were just fellow classmates, we never became close friends but it was fun to be on the theater crew and seeing him and the cast of plays or musicals just having a good time, he always brought a chill and happy energy wherever he went. RIP you were truly gone too soon

    • The McKay Family says:

  5. Marjorie Edwards-Toepel says:

    Dearest Jeanne, Michael, Ryan, Charlie and Jess,
    Sweet little Sammy cemented a place in my heart when as a little guy, asked for his “blueberry water”
    ( water served in a blue glass) during our visits. Sam’s smile, quiet good nature and sense of adventure
    ( especially on the big wheel!) are special memories of him.

    Heavenly Father, keep and carry Sam’s precious family in their sadness and loss. Cover them with your great wings of love, give their weary hearts rest and their minds sound sleep. Lord, lift their eyes so that they may catch a glimpse of eternity, and be comforted by the promise of heaven.

    Sending you love,
    Marjorie and family

  6. Lynnette Phenix says:

    We knew you most as the sweetest (and youngest) of the neighboring Spratt boys. That same sweetness followed you into adulthood. May you rest in power in God’s arms, Sam.
    And to you Jeanne, Mike, Ryan, Charlie and Jess, and the extensive Spratt family, we offer our very deepest sympathies. May the love of friends give you comfort; may the love of God give you peace.
    Your Bloomington neighbors, Bob and Lynnette Phenix

  7. Eric says:

    I worked with Sam in Colorado at QBP and he always has good topics to talk about no matter how abstract the content was! Such a kind caring and supportive guy! Always came out to our shows and had fun. Rest in paradise buddy you will be missed and you definitely will leave a void on this planet, but have definitely left an impression on me and I’m sure others!

  8. Pat & Pat RIckert. says:

    Jeanne words cannot express the sorrow in our hearts for you and yours.

  9. Len Hardie says:

    So sorry to hear such sad news. Sam was caring, loving, kind and sensitive to everyone he knew. Sam wil forever be in our hearts. And Gisela knew his heart. I pray God to hold you close during difficult days.

  10. Alexis Patillo says:

    Sam was one of the sweetest, most caring and kindest souls I’ve ever met. I used to always tell him he was an angel. He will truly be missed by everyone who had the blessing of having him in their life. He had so many plans for his future, that’s been taken from him far too soon. I send my deepest condolences to his friends, families and loved ones. I don’t know what Sam believed in as far as the afterlife, but I hope he’s in the best part of whatever comes after life on earth, he deserves it.

  11. Rodriguez-Schrader Family says:

    In this sorrowful time, we would like to extend to you our heartfelt condolences. May our Lord comfort you and your loved ones.
    Rodriguez-Schrader Family

  13. Doug Mostrom says:

    So many memories of Sam way back when he was just a little tike….5-8 years old…living across the street from us.

    Jeanne, Ryan and Charlie…we are all heartbroken for each of you! You are in our thoughts and prayers and know you will always be able to put a smile of your face every time you think back on memories of Sam. He is safe and now your angel looking down and able to keep you safe.

    All of our love,
    Doug, Kim, Mason and Mya Mostrom. ❤️

  14. Marriah Anderson says:

    Sam didn’t have to be close friends with someone to make their bad day turn into good. His smile and genuine personality was beyond contagious. He held such a huge heart for anyone and everyone. He will be very missed beyond measures and I am so sorry for your loss. It was truly an honor and pleasure to grow up in grade school together and meet the amazing young man he was. Sending prayers and hugs.

  15. Josette Repke says:

    Jeanne, I’m sorry for the loss of your youngest son- I grieve with you as I can’t imagine how you are handling this loss as I can’t imagine losing my own children. I think of you often and pray that you will get through this year!
