Sam lived his life to the full - you have to listen to this man's story. He was a schoolboy when the Second World War broke out, an underage member of the Home Guard and an underage member of the Royal Navy. Sam started life as he meant to go on - at full throttle. The love of his life was his wife Margaret who he was devoted to. Sam had some interesting stories to tell about the war years and life after war. He was a mill worker and then an Insurance man. Everyone knew Sam for his singing; his entertaining; his poetry and his wonderful paintings. I would often bump into the 93 year old Sam in Yeadon Morrisons and when asked "How are you Sam?" the reply was always "Well, I am over 90 and doing my own shopping in Morrisons, so not bad!"
Sadly, Sam died on the 8th April 2020 a victim of Covid-19
