  1. I just found this out today, he was a good friend. He was Shawnee and I used to work with him on raising money for charity. He also used to be the head of Eagle River Indian Council, a group that he formed to help others lean about their Native American culture and heritage. at one time in his life he was also a preacher, Rev. Freeland. He was also a good friend to my dad Ed Frazier, now is setting by the Council Fire with the Creator. His has ended one journey and now begins another, is now reunited with old friends and family. I knew Sam for many years, and if his family ever reads this and it they could contact me, I would like to hear from them. My name is John Frazier but known by the Freeland family by my native name Black Crow, my #(937)527-7081. In our culture there is never no words for goodbye, do na da go hv i (until we meet again) old friend.
