Born November 8, 1926 in Ash Fork Arizona died April 19, 2016 in Duncan B.C.
Raised in Harrington and Calgary Alberta. Sam spent his adult life as a commercial fisherman.
Predeceased by his wife (Pat) Clairellen Maxine and daughter Pamela Ann. Survived by daughters Sylvia Jeanette of Duncan and Sandra Gale of Chemainus.
He inspired his family, and those close to him as a role model of integrity, determination, independence and strength.
Beyond a successful fisherman he was a shrewd business man who was always willing to share his wisdom with a story or anecdote for nearly any life situation. As evidenced in the legacy that follows him – he instilled in those around him an entrepreneurial spirit, balanced with prudence and responsibility.
He will be missed.
Funeral and reception will be held at Sands Funeral Chapel, 187 Trunk Road in Duncan on Monday, April 25, 2016 at 10:00 am, followed by interment at Mountain View Cemetery in Duncan.
Flowers gratefully accepted at Sands Funeral Chapel.
