Robert Sampson stabbing: Family pays tribute


The wife of a man fatally stabbed in the street has paid tribute to a “brilliant dad, son, brother and husband”.

Robert Sampson, 63, died after he was attacked on Crookbarrow Road, in Norton, Worcestershire on 16 November.

Deborah Samson said she would love her husband, a man who “who would always put others first”, forever.

Daryl Sampson, 28, of Broomhall Cottages, Worcestershire, has been charged with his murder.

‘Tragic experience’

In a family tribute, Mrs Sampson said: “Rob, sometimes known as Bob to others, was the one person I have only truly felt a connection with.

“Even though he was very private, anyone he let close to him would know the true Rob.”

Amy Taylor, Mr Samson’s stepdaughter, added: “Rob took on the role of being my dad for the past 14 years and without his love, support and guidance I wouldn’t be the person I am now.

“He was a loving and generous person who my mum and I could always rely on if we ever needed anything.

“He would be overwhelmed by the support and love shown to him since this tragic experience and I know he would be grateful to each and every one.”

Daryl Sampson is due to appear at Worcester Crown Court on 21 December.
