Sam grew up in North Pelham, but also lived in Welland, and Dain City before finally settling in Wainfleet. Sam was a jack of all trades. You could find him always working at something, usually a vehicle and he was forever helping others. Sam also loved spending his time camping. He worked at Ken’s Salvage for a few years before starting at General Motors where he retired after 30 years of service. Sam will be sadly missed by all those who knew him.

The family would also like to recognize and sincerely thank the entire team of Dr’s and Nurses at the Walker Center and the 3B oncology unit at St, Catharines General Hospital. Sam was especially grateful to Nurse Binni for his devoted care and compassion.

All will be welcomed to visit Sam’s family on Friday March 15, 2024 from 2-4pm and 6-8pm at Lampman Funeral Home, 724 Canboro Rd, Fenwick. A service will take place at the Meridian Center Pelham Saturday, March 16, 2024 at 11am, 100 Meridian Way Fonthill (Pelham Arena) followed by an interment at North Pelham Cemetery.
