While not having children of their own, Sam was a mentor and friend to nieces, nephews, cousins and children of friends. He was very active in St. Germain and the surrounding communities. He was a teacher for years in Dundee, Illinois until committing fully to running the resort year-round. His sense of humor, wit and spirit of fun will be sorely missed by friends and family alike.
