Sam and I worked together at Standard Register for many years. He was one of the nicest people I ever knew, always approached life with a smile, with confidence, and with joy in living. He had such a kind heart, and was always willing to help whenever needed. I was proud to call him Friend, and along with so many others, I will miss his genuineness, his ability to look on the bright and often funny side of life. He will be missed by so many.

Michele sorry to hear of Sam's passing. The residents of Acheson Deer Trail Condo Association appreciated Sam's mowing and faithful work taking care of our lawns. He was always there for us, and always with a smile. God Bless
