Samuel was born on Aug. 7, 1936, to Samuel and Eleanor Goudy in Battle Creek, Mich. Sam was raised in Battle Creek until the age of 17, when his family vacationed in Sunnyville, Calif., and he decided to stay on the West Coast. In 1957, Sam met the love of his life, Joyce Wright. Two years later, in 1959 they were married. Sam and Joyce had their first child in 1960, they named their daughter Nova Jean. Two years later, their son Timothy Scott was born.

Sam had his own business The Golden Comb in Sunny-ville for seven years. A family vacation to North Idaho inspired the Goudy family to move to Sandpoint in 1969.

In 1970, he opened his beauty salon, Mr. Samís on First Avenue, which he had for 29 years. He later moved his business next to Studio 1 on Cedar Street, where he worked for 12 years, retiring at age 75 in 2011.
