Shared many times with Sam at the 1790 from 1977 till I was temporarily reassigned to Florida in 1987, then when I moved back in 2003 to Savannah. Always chuckled watching him duck to come in the door at The 90. He was always a gentleman and kind. He is missed.

Sam was a great friend from early childhood. He had a marvelous sense of humor and was well liked and highly respected by all who knew him. As young boys growing up on 45th , Sam and I got into one kind of mischief and then another. It is a wonderful that the Ardsley Park neighborhood survived our mischief. My condolences to Diane, Morgan and Sam’s extended family. John Cay

Sam, The Man, was just that; a great friend! From the days of the “45th Street MorBell”, created by Sam’ and Charles’ chemistry skills, to our parallel business careers, I always found a good and stalwart friend in Sam. He will be missed by many more than just Diane, Natasha, Morgan, other family and close friends. You all have my condolences! Randy Booker, Sr.
