With broken hearts, we say goodbye to our Sam who passed peacefully on September 4, 2019 at the age of 27. Sam was a compassionate and loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandson and cat-dad. He was bright and jovial, bringing his lopsided grin and enthusiasm wherever he went. He approached life with passion, whether he was brewing a decadent pour-over coffee, devouring science fiction novels or competing in a game of pool. He was finding success in his work life, advancing his career in banking. Beneath all this Sam struggled; he could not overcome his pain and he took his own life. We know Sam is at peace now.
Sam is predeceased by his loving grandparents Florence, Doug, Audrey and Alex, and his aunt Kristina. He will be eternally missed by his mother Sharon, father Dave, sister Joy (Michael) and nephew Maxwell. Also leaving to mourn his aunt Pamela (Todd), cousins Ayla, Mark and Claire and the extended Hopley family.
Friends and family are invited to gather at 7:30pm in Bannerman Park on the evening of Tuesday, September 10, 2019, to share memories of Sam.
Donations can be made in Sam’s memory to local community organization Thrive at www.thrivecyn.ca.
