Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
My sincerest condolences to the family of Sammy Baugh. Everything I have heard about him makes me wish that I would have met him. Sammy Baugh will live forever!
Dear David and family, my condolences on the loss of Sammy. I did not know him, however, my aunt Marie Baugh and Grandpa Ace Baugh had some clippings in their bible which I just recently found. Im not for sure what the connection may be but wanted to pass on my symphaties. God Bless. Allen firstname.lastname@example.org
Our deepest sympathy to you and Jeremy and the whole Baugh family. Mike has always been proud to know your Dad and he enjoyed meeting him and staying at the ranch. Our love to you.
In Heaven, God will restore Sammy to the legendary days of his strong and vibrant youth. There will be new victories for a man life never defeated, only the time expired. God Bless you again Sammy. You were one of a kind.
My deepest sympathy to your family. In times such as these, I often find comfort in the Holy Scriptures. Psalms 55:22 says for us to throw our burdens upon Jehovah God and he will sustain us. Also, we gain encouragment from John 5:28&29 where we are given the hope of seeing our loved ones again. I hope you can find the comfort you need from God's word the Bible.
Dear Baugh family, some of my fondest memories of working with Stephen Baugh for 15 years was the sharing of family stories. My heart is sad that we have lost a legend and you have lost your patriarch. Enjoy all of those special memories of good times past. May each of you be comforted by the love, thoughts, and prayers of friends.

Please accept my deepest sympathies.
Thanks for the memories. Proud to be a Baugh. Rest in Peace Sammy.
Dear Mrs. White... I just wanted to send out my condolences to you during this difficult time... I don't know if you remember coaching me so long ago in jr high school and sharing many memories with Cody as we grew up in Rotan, with Jennifer, Terry Jane and the whole Rotan bunch. I remember one time in particular going out to your Dad's when Cody was in high school and getting in plenty of fun trouble...lol... Your dad was always cutting it up and having a good time...Especially at Hoss's having coffee. That's how I will always remember him just a good old boy and legend in his own right. I just want you to know that I'm thinking of you during this difficult time and am praying for you and the rest of your family continually.
Slingin' Sammy Baugh was the kind of athelete all of us wanted to be. He was also the example for many to follow and will be from now on. Thank you for the many years of enjoyment on the football field. Rest in peace gentle giant and may God grant you family comfort and peace.
My memories of Sam go way back since I grew up in Rotan, I met him at a young age and instantly admired him. To a little skinny kid in the country of West Texas he was more than a great football player. He was also a very good roper. We got to see him rope not play football but he was always willing to show how he could throw a football or kick.
May God be with his kids and grand kids in this time. I know you will miss him as many of us will. So to Tod, Stephen, David and Francis my heartfelt sympathy
What a great player Mr. Baugh was. May God bring peace and comfort to his family. With deepest sympathy
Good memories from Sammy helping coach our Little League Baseball team, The Prune Peddlers. We didnt even know he was famous!
To the Baugh Family, I extend my sincere sympathy.
Sammy was a hero of my youth growing up in Sweetwater. One of my most thrilling moments came in the mid forties when my dad and I met Sammy in a cafe. Dad, Clay Reeves,was a year ahead of Sammy in high school and knew him from those years. I peeked out from behind Dad, for I was very shy in the presence of this great man, and accepted his slingin' hand to shake. Thanks, Sammy, for all the excitement that you brought to fans of all ages and the pride that you brought to our community.
I'm proud to have a degree from TCU and know that you went there too and won a National Championship in 1935. You were truly an original and one of the greatest athletes to ever play any sport. RIP fellow Horned Frog!
Growing up in Ft.Worth and down the street from TCU it was impossible to not know about Sammy Baugh. He really was 50 years ahead of his time. In my mind he is the Babe Ruth of NFL quarterbaks. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
To Buddy's children......As children my brother (Dale), sister (Beverly) and I visited the ranch. We're cousins, our grandfathers were brothers. Your dad was such a delight whenever I called him and it was always a great source of pride when someone would ask if I was related to the GREAT Sammy Baugh.
We have LOST A "GREAT AMERICAN". I have said a special payer for the Baugh Family
My deepest sympathy to the Baugh family. You don't know me but I'm sure my father, Pat Preston (#53 Chicago Bears '46-'49) played against Mr. Baugh during the 40s. These football heroes that helped pioneer the sport are becoming few and far between. God bless.
What an honor it is to share kinship with this hero to my family. My father taught me to admire him as a good example to follow.
Heart felt sympathy to the Baugh family and friends in your loss.
God speed to one of the truly great ones.
REST IN PEACE SAMMY BAUGH
Thanks for your contributions to Football and sports in general. May God rest your soul.
No greater warrior ever there was. My humble condolences to the family and friends of Special Sammy. God Bless
As a little girl, I also played at Sammy's house, played pool and played around the ranch. My cousin's worked for the ranch and I went to visit them in the summer during the mid 1960's. He was a great man!
I met Sam's son Stephen, my freshman year at Texas Tech...Fond memories of Bledsoe Hall and enjoyed the "Tall Tales" Stephen would tell about his wonderful father. Rest in Peace, Mr. Baugh, and God Bless You.
Rest in Peace, Slingin' Sammy Baugh. You were the best.
To the children of Sammy Baugh - Tod, David, Stephen and Frances:
My deepest condolences on the loss of your dad. I never met him, but I did know your mom and you kids growing up in Rotan.
May God wrap His arms around you in this sad time and just think of all the memories you have of this great man.
My love to you,
My sincere sympathies to the Baugh family from a life-long Redskins fan living deep in "enemy territory" (Dallas) I know that Texas and the Washington Redskins were in his heart long before there ever was a rivalry and Washingtonians will always be grateful to "Slingin' Sammy!" God bless you and comfort you in your loss and may you always find joy in the remembering. Thank you for sharing him with us.
You were the best. Keep on slingin them footballs in heaven my man!
RIP forever with angels.
A true west Texas legend, on and off the field. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
Mark Little & family
I'm proud to be a TCU alumnus because of all-time greats like Sam Baugh. Tiny TCU on the Fort Worth prairie received nationwide acclaim in the 1930s because of Sam's exploits. Your legend will not be forgotten.
My family is from Rotan,Texas and they always talk of their hometown hero. My Aunt used to work for Sam Baugh and my dad tells me stories of playing at his house when he was young. We were just there 2 weeks ago, and drove down Sammy Baugh Blvd. Our prayers go out to your family.
In 1966, I went to work in Temple's Santa Fe Hospital. Coffee break conversation always focused on football, and the old timers often seemed to bleed TCU purple. Wondering why, I soon found that those older Templeites still claimed ownership of Sammy Baugh, and they always spoke of him with extreme reverence.
Yet, For my wife his legend transcends football. Robert Duvall once implied that Baugh was the prototype for his character, Gus, in the Lonesome Dove saga. She "loved" Gus, so I guess Sammy Baugh by inference. If Duvall's suggestion about his Gus protype is true, both he and Baugh have done much to perpetuate forever what we Texans consider to be true Texan prototypes.
I was about ten years old when Sammy retired, but I have heard about him all my life. May he rest in peace, and comfort. That will be something that the NFL never made provisions for, for the players of Sammy's era. Thank You so much Sammy for your contribution not just to football, but to life in general. You will always be remembered. Bob(Jacksonville, Florida)
In 2006, while researching my Apple Family Tree, I visited my Dad's cousin, Harold Apple, in Sweetwater, Texas. Harold showed me a 1999 photo of him and his friend, Sam Baugh. Harold was so proud to know Sammy and told me all about his famous friend. Harold passed away that same year - he and his famous friend will visit again.
The greatest QB of all time. Had also
signed a baseball contract with the
St Louis Cardinals. Decided after one
year his future was in Football. I was
thrilled we were able to retire his TCU
number. I will always appreciate
Milton Hamm for helping to make that
happen. Rest in peace Sam.
I did a drawing of the great Sammy back in 1949..sent it to him and he autographed it to me personally and today I bring it out of my scrapbook and place a small flower underneath...the best.......Nino
To the family of Mr. Sammy Baugh, you have my deepest sympathy.
God Bless you Sam.
YOU were the GREATEST !!

I was born in 1948 so I never got to see Mr. Baugh play in person, but my father did and he insists Sam should have won the Heisman. My son gave me an autographed picture of #33, and it holds a place of honor as one of my most treasured TCU memorabilia items. We Horned Frogs have lost a legend.
Thank you for everything Sammy Baugh.
Sincerest sympathies to your family.
I saw him play in 1943 for the 1st time . I am fortunate to have and autographed football from him.
MY FATHER-IN-LAW GREW UP IN FT. WORTH, GRADUATED FROM TCU, AND LOVED WATCHING SAMMY PLAY FOR THE FROGS. HE SAYS THERE WAS NO ONE BETTER THAN SLIGNING SAMMY BAUGH, EITHER IN COLLEGE OR THE PROS. HE WAS AND SHALL ALWAYS REMAIN MR FOOTBALL IN THE HISTORY OF T.C.U. GOD BLESS YOU SAMMY.
We'll miss you. Thanks for everything you did for TCU.

My condolences to Mr. Baughs family. Growing up I herd his name mentioned from sports announcers often. He was well known around the other football teams fans just as well as the Redskins fans. A legand. A true pioneer in the game of football in every since of the word. But more than a football player, a gentleman. "You'll be sadly missed Sammy, but never forgotten."

I remember trading five NFL cards for one Sammy Baugh when I was a school kid in New Orleans back in the early 50s. Sammy Baugh was what football was all about. My memories of Mr. Baugh will never fade.
Our sympathies to the Baugh family on your loss. Please find comfort in all your precious memories.
(2 Cor 1:3,4)
Rest in peace Sammy Baugh.
My prayers are with Sammy's family. God Bless.
Sammy Baugh was the father of the forward pass in the NFL, he could do it all, the ultimate football player and a legend for all times. Rest in peace Sammy, you were quite a guy.
