Sam was the guy everybody liked and admired. He was thoughtful and studious. I played soccer with him in high school, part of the first Skowhegan soccer team. He was a good player, certainly better than most of us to this, at the time, new sport. Pam and he were so much alike that their partnership was inevitable yet I don't remember them dating in high school. My heart breaks for Pam. As our SAHS Class of 76 reaches retirement age, we are saddened to lose one of our best.

Sam, was one of a kind! Loyal friend and listener, dedicated worker and 100% family man. Words are hard to find in such sadness but, No matter what, I'll never forget the kind heart, and happiness he brought into my life! Always looked forward to seeing him, and the words of wisdom he shared! I thank God for having Sam in my life, he deserved so much more of life to live!!! He was my bud, and will always have him in my heart. My prayers to Pam, and the girls. He always talked so highly of you all, and loved you sooo much!!! So proud of all of you. He was the best human being, I've had the privilege to know, and to be my friend! Blessed! I'll cherish your smile always!!!
God speed Sam, love ya brother! Aaron Taylor

To Sam's Family
I did not get the privilege to meet you but have heard many stories through Sam. I met Sam in the mill at work and on the mountain that I call The Mecca. We shared our love for skiing and though we only had the opportunity to ski together several times, we found that our passion for skiing and Sugarloaf was a match. We also worked together to make his department a better department for his friends and co-workers at the mill. His ability to listen and understand people while working to address their concerns was his gift to others. I so looked forward to spending time with him at The Mecca and am saddened that he did not get the time to enjoy the many things he intended to do in retirement, mostly enjoy his family and especially his grandchildren. He will be missed by many.

Sam was such a great person that influenced so many. My childhood memories are anchored in the summers at “The Camp” learning to water-ski, ride mini-bikes, shoot rifles at the state fair and skip stones. Sam was always the leader of the gang, offering care for everyone and contributing to the smartest decisions. Visits in our adult years were fantastic and it always felt like going home. These memories have lasted a lifetime and continue with gratitude.

Feeling great sadness for his entire family. Sending our condolences on this tremendous loss. Rocky & Tana Nash

Condolences to Pam and your family.
I’m so sorry to have read of Sams passing. Although I haven’t followed him in the later years I have fond memories of Sam growing up with my children. Living almost next door I had the opportunity to watch Sam and Johnathan grow up right along with my children. Sliding on the back forty, swimming in Sandra/Jeff’s pool, school and many many more.
I know your hearts are broken but thank
the lord we are given memories-
Blessings, Caroline Crowell

Dearest Pam'la and family, My heart is heavy with grief and sorrow at Sam's passing. I have such fun and fond memories ..Sam had the greatest wit and personality..such a fun friend to share conversations with, both fluffy and profound. His sense of humor was priceless. I still think about getting into the car with you two after your if I were going away with you..and I can never hear the words
"cellar" or "pool skinny dipping" without laughing. The "snap chats" will forever be on my phone. All my love my friend, and healing thoughts and prayers your way. Margo

With heavy heart and total
disbelief my lifelong friend is gone!
So many memories from childhood on Waterville Hill,
Playing baseball @ the Beckler’s and Libby’s to riding our bikes kamikazee down Burrill Hill.
I moved to Fla. and Sam wrote me and came to Disney with his family and I skipped school to be there and we had fun!
Returning to Maine we continued our friendship in high school and college years, then I moved, but we always stayed in touch.
Sam was always welcoming and we had endless laughter.
Pam, Chelsea, and Alana I’m so sorry for your loss.
Rest In Peace Sam
