In the years since graduation, I always wondered what happened to Sam.  He was one of those people whose memory always brought a smile - he was a genuinely good guy.  Sad news.

I find it interesting that both he and Sherry Obendorfer worked at Eaton for over 30 years and died one day apart.

Rest in Peace Sam...
