Samuel (“Sam”) David McCuistion, age 56, passed away at his home in New Orleans on March 16, 2020. Although Sam was born in Louisville, Ky and graduated from Memphis State University, he adopted New Orleans as his home soon afterwards where he established himself as a landscape architect. Sam is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Bill and Emma McCuistion, his nephew Dylan Thomas McCuistion, and his niece Izabell McCuistion, all of Clarksville, Tennessee. Sam is also survived by his loyal companion Igor, a rescue dog from the SPCA, without whom Sam was rarely seen. Sam will be remembered for his overwhelming love for Igor and before Igor, Gotham and Hebert, as well as for his talents and skills as a landscaper and gardener, unique style and aesthetic, biting sense of humor, dramatic recounting of stories, his love of music and music videos and generally colorful personality. Sam’s remains will join those of his parents, Samuel Don and Una “Vicki” McCuistion, who preceded him in death in Maryville, Tennessee at Clark’s Grove Cemetery. Igor will be moving to Clarksville with Sam’s brother and sister-in-law.
