    Dear Shelly,
    We were devastated to hear of Sam’s passing. We only met him once or twice, but we remember him well. That just goes to show what a charming and outgoing personality he exuded. Our deepest sympathies go to you and your three children. We are currently in Australia so will miss the funeral, but our love and thoughts will be with you.
    With deepest sympathy,
    Shirley and Gary Leswick (Julie’s parents)

  7. On behalf of the employees of Ocean Construction Supplies, I would like to send our heart felt condolences to the family members that were blessed to have Sam in their lives.I only had the honor and pleasure of knowing and working with Sam for a very short time and was looking forward to Sam’s return to Ocean. Please allow me at this very difficult time to send this little prayer.

    God looked around his garden
    and found an empty space.
    He then looked down upon this earth
    and saw your smiling face.
    He put his arms around you
    and lifted you to rest.
    God’s garden must be beautiful
    He only takes the best.
    It broke our hearts to lose you,
    But you never went alone,
    For part of us went with you,
    The day God called you home.

  14. I am deeply saddened and shocked to hear of Sam’s passing. Although I have not talked to Sam in many years he was in my thoughts often. Sam and I went to grade school and high school together in Windsor Ont and were together just about every day. My sincerest condolences go out to his family. He will be forever missed but not forgotten.

  15. Shocked to hear of Sam’s passing. We lost contact with each other many years ago. Growing up and hanging out through high school he always made me laugh. My condolences to his wife, children, sister and Mother. God Bless.

  16. Sam’s passing is shocking and disheartening. Through grade school and high school he always managed a joke or to get a smile out of me. My sincerest condolences go out to his family.

  18. I don’t know if you still check this… But the other day I was thinking of Sam and all that he had done for me. I miss you guys and I know we haven’t been in contact for a while, but Sam was the best man I know and I think of him almost everyday. It’s a little late but I give you my fullest condolences for your loss…
    I’m sorry I haven’t contacted you guys since, but Jack, Shelly, Silver, and the one I yet to know – Liam, I am very sorry for your loss and all that you have been though. Sam was an incredible man, I still remember when I was young he was always taking care of me and my diabetes. I’ll never forget him and all he did for me. If you would like to contact me my number is 604-315-4569. Once again, I miss you guys, and I loved Sam. I ran out of words so the best I can say now is sorry, and I hope to hear from you guys soon and that you are doing alright now. Sam was the last person to deserve this, and he passed much too soon. I know, just by the way he was, that many will miss him and like me – are heartbroken that he is gone.
