Sam was a long time member of Glenmary Council Knights of Columbus and growing up in the council I knew him most of that time. He was always pleasant to chat with and catch up on things. While he was not as active in his later years I would see him often at church or other functions. He will be remembered in daily mass at our supreme headquarters. I would like to express our deepest sympathy to your family during this time of loss.
Dear Anna, Gerry and girls,
My sympathy to you all at Sam’s death. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless, Fr. Tom
Sam was a wonderful man and we were all blessed to have the opportunity to work with him. His work ethic and determination were always an inspiration. We will truly miss him and his wonderful family that were always so devoted and kind.
With sympathy, your friends in the therapy department
