"I did not know Sam very well and I don't think he knew me either but after hearing the news it left quite the impact on me. Seeing the the effect it had on others made me realize how important life is. His story gave me motivation to fight my own battle and keep my head up. Sam's memory will live on with those he has touched."

"Sam was always well dressed in a button up shirt.  He led by example and was always willing to take on tasks other students did not want to do.  He brought a calm into the room when he entered.  He will be missed dearly."

"One of those kids where all he needed was the project and the materials , and off he would go, always creating something unique, and really fun to see.  He had a little spark.  It was a privilege to have him as an art student. Sadness at his loss , but will always remember Sam."

"Sam was such a smart, funny and talented young man.  The common thing I keep hearing when anyone talks about him, is his smile-and ability to share that smile with everyone he met.  It is a rare person who can touch so many lives with joy and humor.  I hope that we can all try to capture a small piece of that joyful spirit that shone so very brightly in Sam.  Maybe if we all work a bit, to bring a smile to the world in the ready way that he did, his light will continue to shine within us.  Sam, you will be sorely missed."

"I always enjoyed watching Sam on the soccer field.  He was a hard worker and everyone liked him.  I couldn't help but notice how very handsome he was and always charming.:) I loved that his younger brother Nate was often at Sam's games and that really showed me how much Nate must have looked up to him. One couldn't help but pick up on his playful/ fun loving nature. A tribute to the person that Sam was can be noted by the incredible impact he had on so many in the short time he walked among us. Thinking of you and praying for your dear family."

This tribute was added by Debbie Pettersson on 20th January 2016

"I love watching Sam comming down the culdesac, always a big smile on his face, lighting up any day or situation. Waving and calling out to us from the street, greeting us with funny remarks that we could hear from any room in the house with doors and windows wide open on warm summer days. You did nothing but elevated us. We love you and we'll see you in heaven one day.  Thank you for your blessings. I cherish everyone."
