Personal History Born in southern Florida, he spent his childhood in the backcountry, woods, and swamps. He spent much of his childhood learning to “listen to nature” as his great-great-grandfather a Miccosukee Indian medicine man used to say. Papou Renfroe taught Samuel much about herbs and the healing properties of various plants this knowledge would serve him well for the rest of his life as he used the knowledge to save a friend on his hiking trip when they were teens. Had Samuel not known that tiger moss stops bleeding and aids in healing wounds his friend would have either bleed or died from the resulting infection?

His father was the only doctor in any of three small towns surrounding the reservation. The Family moved into a restored plantation house on 15 acres of land adjacent to the reservation. In addition to their education, Samuel and his brothers helped run the plantation to provide food and such for not only themselves but also to help supplement the local Baptist mission. He and his brothers learned much from their great great grandfather and father until their father’s death when Samuel the youngest of the group was only 15. Their father contracted] a rare disease on one of his calls to the old-timers on the reservation. The old-timer was isolated and had little or no modern technology.

The funeral for Fred Jr. was on a dark and rainy day. Frank the oldest of the five brothers took a week off from his last year of medical school. Samuel was hurt more by his father’s sudden passing than anyone knew at the time including him. After the funeral, Frank went back to Med. School, Fred III, Cody, Will, and Samuel worked the farm on the plantation for a while. Cody and Will joined the Marines 2 months after the funeral. Samuel, who had already started using chewing tobacco almost daily, sank deeply into depression and began drinking heavily. His depressions lead to more drinking and drinking lead to a fit of rage. His father as a doctor had helped almost everyone in the county at one time or another many time for no cost] or a simple meal but when his father needed help in Samuel’s minds at least no one tried to help him.

He began to lose his faith in humanity. This went on for 2 years until after one night of drinking and being badly beaten in a barroom brawl he passed put near his father is grave where Fred III and his maternal grandfather Elton Massey found him the next morning. They intervened and helped him get his drinking under control. He had always been the most talented in medicine of the group and they convinced him to carry on their father’s legacy and join the Starfleet as a medic, his give consideration over the next year as he became a civilian paramedic.

Two years after the intervention he enlisted in the Starfleet as a combat medic. He was in the top 5% medic class. He served as a medic during the war. The brutally and disregard for life he saw during this enraged him. He had inherited his Father’s moral compass, his father, the late great Leonard McCoy seemed to have a lot in common, and his Father either through genetics or through teaching passed it to Samuel. He relapsed in drinking for a few months after the war but managed to get back on track before it cost him. After he took both, the Starfleet advanced Combat medic and paramedic courses. Although he was top 15% of that class, his professors were amazed at his skills, particularly his ability to stay calm and collected under pressure. He was very knowledgeable about many of the subjects and was a wiz at improvising when a situation called for it.
subjects and was a wiz at improvising when a situation called for it.

He did some guest lecture at the academy. Meeting many of the cadets who wanted to fight the war had left many of the young people cold and indifferent with a distasteful attitude toward life in general. For Samuel’s taste, he also found he was not particularly fond of Vulcan’s. He had many debates with some of the ethics instructors about the merit of emotion in ethical decisions. His southern charm made a hit with most of the female personnel he worked with. He graduated in the top 3% of his class as Advanced Combat Medic and paramedic courses. He served on two-star bases 3 starships, and two other marine units before his current posting.
