I am so glad that I was able to attend the service for Sam this morning. What a wonderful tribute delivered by Col Fred Butler, family, and friends.

I am proud that I got to serve with Sam at the Pentagon. It was a pleasure to be around him, both professionally and personally. He set the standards high, and everyone looked up to him for advice and guidance. He served with such dignity and respect that we soon nicknamed him "Senator Sam," a nickname that fit him perfectly. He was the epitome of an Officer and a Gentleman. All of those who served with Sam will treasure those memories forever - I know I will.

Good morning,

It's fair to say that Sam was one of the most positive influences on my Air Force career. He was the "source of all knowledge" at the Pentagon when I began working with the FAA 39 years ago, and he guided me through the rough spots as I learned, but never really mastered, his phenomenal blend of technical knowledge and sincere personal warmth. A delightful and thoughtful friend, whom I will remember always with great affection. Our prayers are with your family.

He was my childhood hero.
He was my Air Force inspiration.
He was my Uncle.
He was my friend.
