Sam was an avid music lover and frequented many concerts such as The Midnight and Coldplay. He had a vast appreciation for reading any and all books; Stephen King, Harry Potter, GOT, and his favorite, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. He was a season pass holder with The STL Symphony Orchestra and loved classical music. He had a wonderful collection of nerdy (yet super cool) memorabilia. He loved art and history and couldn't get enough of learning. He enjoyed the outdoors and camping. He absolutely loved coffee. He was just getting into candle and soap making. He was a man of exuberant wit and immense brilliance.
A memorial open house gathering will be held in the lower level of Tompkins by The Rack house on Main Street in historic Saint Charles, MO on September 26th from noon-2:30 PM. He started a volunteer team with MO Stream Teams, so donations and/or volunteering with this organization in his honor is greatly appreciated.
