    Kind thoughts will always come to mind when thinking of Sam. He loved his wife and missed her terribly. We had many, many talks about Sweet Beth. He loved both his sons and his life was being a part of their life. He was always in contact with the boys, needing to check in with the boys, wanting to be sure the boys had what they needed. Sam suffered the loss of Beth and I don’t think he ever got over her not being there with their boys. We had good talks, he was a good friend to myself and my husband! Sam and Gary could talk for hours about their bikes or could be together for hours and not talk at all. Each time we heard a bike come by the house, we would check to see if it was Sam. That feeling will be missed, as will our talks, his advice on snakes, where to find them and more important, where not to look if you didn’t want to find them. He was our expert on all things reptiles and turned over every big rock in our yard trying to find something under that rock to take home.

    Sam will be missed by Gary, Liz and myself and I pray Latham and Will know what a good friend he was to a lot of people! Once he found out I liked these little pies he got from a curb market by the house and when they had them, he always brought me some as I did not make stops at that store, nor would I buy them for myself. But Sam knew I loved them and he just wanted to see me smile. He was a good guy!

    What a liveable guy Sam was. He was a character and always fun to be with. Our connection to Sam was through music and he was an excellent banjo player. I know life was difficult for him after Beth died. May he rest at peace now. And I hope Latham and Will will feel the spirits of both their parents going forward.

    We just now found out and our hearts are broken. We lived by him for 15 years and had just moved a couple months ago and had seen him and his smile right before we moved. I wish we had known of his passing before today. Praying for Lathom and Will right now.
