August 24, 1940 - August 13, 2018
After graduating from Niagara Falls High he served four years in the US Navy where he learned his photography trade. Sam's last duty assignment was in Hawaii where he met Shannon.

He also served for many years as a hockey coach in the Niagara Falls youth hockey programs.
In 1985 he relocated with his family to Las Vegas, NV where he entered the field of commercial real estate and continued to work until his passing. Sam will be missed by many.
