Sam was very much a family man, a loving husband and father. He spent his working life as a carpenter but his love of working with wood carried over into his retirement where he could be found in his workshop making folk art out of wood and listening to CIFA. He also enjoyed hunting and being in the woods. As a devout Catholic, Sam was active in the church until his 80s. He will leave a big void in our lives and we will never forget him. xo
