I remember growing up with Sam in Chariton, IA. We had so much fun with all of the cousins; eating Sunday dinner at Momsie Clothier's and then to the movie and popcorn thanks to the dime supplied by Momsie, boxing when you received gloves as a gift, the time you rode your bike to the farm. I got to ride a bike and Sam got to ride the horse. Sam was very personable and fun at family gatherings.

Our sincere sympathy to Rusty and Tom and the rest of the family. We are sending our memorial to Denver Dumb Friends League.

It does seem so many years ago that we were playing kick the can in their backyard.....and seems like yesterday. Sam was a FUN cousin. My condolences to his whole family. Cousin Martha

I remember visiting Sam's business as a teenager with my parents when we travelled to Denver to see Sam's parents my uncle Gordon and aunt Bernice he was gracious and gave me a nice tour, even though it was busy there . Also enjoyed seeing him at family reunions back in Chariton. Iowa Sam often had a funny story or interesting tale to tell. I do not know if anyone remembers the state trooper story, it was very funny at the time. It seems on the way back to Chariton for a family reunion both Bill and Sam were stopped by the same trooper a few hours apart, Bill being first he said he talked himself out of the speeding ticket. When the trooper pulled over Sam and saw the Clothier name on his license having stopped Bill a few hours earlier. The trooper just ask if he had a brother named Bill and was going to Chariton, Sam said yes the trooper just gave him back his license and told him to get out of there. Even though there is significant age difference between us, and our paths did not cross much in last several years, he always treated me like a brother. I also valued his visit last year to Burlington , Iowa when my sister Betty Morlan was in hospice.
