Sam Eskew


 ESKEW, Sam Hatton, age 73, of Estill Springs, passed away on Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021, at St. Thomas Rutherford. He was born on July 31, 1948, in Lebanon, Tennessee, to the late Alfred Eskew and Martha Isabel Stephens Eskew. He was a member of the Winchester First United Methodist Church and attended West End Baptist Church in Tullahoma, with his wife, Pam. He retired from Bell South after 33 years of service and was lovingly referred to by his family as “Mr. Fix It.” He could fix anything. And if he couldn’t solve the problem, he would read books until he figured it out. His favorite television programs were the History Channel, military documentaries and westerns. Sam enjoyed collecting a lot of different things, especially cars and motorcycles. He loved spending time with his granddaughters and traveling the world with his family to various places such as Europe, Australia, and Mexico. He will be remembered as having a fun, unique personality and was tough as nails. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Jeanette Eskew. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Pam Eskew of Estill Springs; son, Alex (Jamie) Eskew of Estill Springs; granddaughters, Ellie and Avery Eskew; sister, Stephenie Swann of Decherd; nephews, Stephen (Mary) Swann of Decherd, and Joseph “Jedd” (Meredith) Swann of Decherd; great-nephews, Tyler Swann of Decherd, and Bryant (Emily) Swann of Tullahoma; and great-great-niece, Harper Swann.
