The memory of his kindness, wisdom & infectious laugh will remain with me.

Rest in Peace to a man who brought so many together.

Sam will continue to be with me on top of the BF Goodrich semi at each and every race! I will always treasure my years working with Sam. He truly became my race dad over the years! May you Rest In Peace Sam but always racing toward that checker flag! 💔🏁

I will always remember and be grateful for the time we girls had when we went to visit Sam and Terry in London. Sam took time off work and drove that big car of his all around London serving as not only the chauffeur but an excellent tour guide.
My condolences to their son and family.
