Sam was one of the finest men I have ever met. He knew that to succeed in business you had to have integrity and would operate on a handshake. He loved his children and grandchildren and especially loved his beautiful wife. Sam's passing leaves a hole in our lives.

I recall Sam introducing himself, "Just remember 'Tall Whisky' and you'll remember my name." Sam is the only person I know who took his mother-in-law on his honeymoon. He was a good friend, compassionate support, and the only church treasurer who never gave me flack. We loved him and Ethel ... both.

My sympathies, Lori, in the passing of your Grandpa. .I know he meant so much to you. You two had a very special relationship, and I’m sure shared many happy moments. To Jake and Sam, my loving thoughts are with you as well. Mike, I know you feel the loss as well. My prayers to all of you.
