We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Sam. He was a friend of my father in law Howard Kochheiser. I remember they could both tell a story and were always working on something. I also remember Sam liking his sweets. Prayers to his wife and the rest of his family. Sincerely Jerry and Cathy Littleton Dardnell Kochheiser (Howard’s wife)

My husband Jerry and I met Sam through my father in law Howard Kochheiser. Howard and Sam spent a lot of time making maple syrup cutting and splitting wood and anything else they could get into. I remember Sam liking his sweets too. He was always friendly and kind and sharing vegetables and anything else he had. We are so sorry for your loss. Jerry & Cathy Littleton Howard’s wife Dardnell Kochheiser

Our hearts are broken at the passing of our brother. Sam was just Sam. No put on just a loving brother. Faye, Gleason, Donna, Amanda and me all put our trust and hope in the Lord Jesus our saviour. No words can express our lose and our ?. We lost our youngest brother Malcolm not to many years ago in a tragic accident and it's our oldest. God's grace is prayed for for Judith (Judy) at this time and may God's comforting hand be upon her as well as his remaining sisters and brother. Sammy this is good-bye. It's only time for your body to rest and bye the mercy of the Father we hope to see you again. Tell Daddy and Malcolm that we are still holding on to Jesus. Rest my beloved brother, your time has come. I love you always. Theta

So sorry for your loss Judy. I remember a time when you and Sammy would come to moms, and we played board games for hours.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

We were surprised and sorry to hear from Gleason of Sam's passing. Roger has worked with and knew Sam for over 50 years. Sam generously shared his garden vegetables and many stories. Sam would bring JFG Special Blend coffee back for me from his hunting trips. I just told Roger I was ordering the cabbage rolls from church for Sam as he liked them. Roger and I will really miss Sam but he'll always hold a special place in our hearts. Remembering Sam and family in our prayers. Rest in peace Yosemite Sam.
