Dear Kathy and Family,
Please accept our sincerest condolences on the passing of Sam. We knew Sam only briefly, when he assisted Dean Lemon on a basement remodel project in our Manheim Township home; however during this short time we came to know and admire him as a very kind, caring, humble, and gentle man. With love and respect, Ken & Linda Husler

I would like to extend my condolences to you on the passing of Sam. I will be out of town, and unable to attend services. Although it has been a while since we’ve crossed paths, there are so many great memories over the years. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of Sam.
In 1964 my family moved to the Park Plaza community and Sam was one of the first people that I met there,,,we became good friends, although he was a bit older than I, we seemed to get into several interesting situations..all of which are memorable..

Condolence from Steve Palkovic on March 16th, 2013 1:00 pm

Hi Sam. I can see that smile on your face, as you float around the clouds of heaven. When you read this, you will have even a larger grin.
I can see the smile on your face back in the days when you played football at Manheim Township, and some coach would yell wipe off that smile. A few minutes later it was back you your face as you drop a team mate to the ground. Your opponents would look puzzled as you helped him off the turf. I am sure all your great friends will miss that smile, I know I will.

Coach Steve Palkovic

P.S We still live in your old stomping grounds of Lititz Pennsylvania. I will say many rosaries for you each time I go for a walk.
