January 7, 1966 - July 14, 2017
Samuel Wesley Belcher, 51, of New Castle, formerly of West Clifford, Pennsylvania, went home to be with the Lord on the evening of Friday, July 14, 2017 at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital following a lengthy illness. He was born on January 7, 1966 in Scranton, Pennsylvania, a son of the late Charles Wesley Belcher and Elizabeth May (Porter) Belcher. Samuel was their fifth child. Sam enjoyed growing up on their family farm located in West Clifford Township surrounded by animals. He attended Clifford Elementary School, Mountain View Junior High and High School. He graduated from the Tunkhannock Pilgrim Holiness School. He attended God's Bible School and College in Cincinnati for one semester in 1991 where he met his wife, Cheryl Lynn (Raines) Belcher. They began dating in April of 1996 and were married on April 26,1997. God blessed their home with four beautiful children, Elizabeth Ellen Belcher, Charles Jay Belcher, Rachel Lynn Belcher, and Andrea Marie Belcher. In addition to his wife and children, Sam is survived by a sister, Una (husband: Ross) Kennedy, a brother, Martin (wife: Perlita) Belcher and a sister, Samantha Sullivan; a niece, Erica and three nephews, Michael, Chad and Thomas; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and many beloved friends. Sam was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Clara Louise Belcher. Sam's favorite scripture verse was John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." Please pause for one minute today and think about eternity and whether you are prepared for it. In Sam's own words, "It is the only thing in life that really matters."
