In the early 70s Sam came into my office wearing his big grin and bearing some architectural drawings, which he rolled out on my conference table. "Let me show you The Bustle," he enthused, revealing one of his many unconventional but not-at-all crazy ideas. This bus was designed to carry state employees who lived in Portland to work in Salem. The vehicle would store their bicycles inside the back of the bus. Disembarking in Salem the passengers would ride their bikes to work. Reverse the process to return home. Thus, I was introduced to "The Bustle," one of Sam's contributions to mass transit, and many examples of word play.
I will miss this unique and wonderful man. My condolences to all who knew him for our loss.

As my professor, Sam not only taught me about English, but also about responsibility in life; the responsibility for action, and the cost of inaction. Thank you, Sam.

I am a Park Ranger at the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and knew Sam when he was at Multnomah Falls. What a wonderful character! One of things that I will always remember about Sam is his desire and push to allow us to wear the old Forest Service "Campaign" hat. He got approval to do that and then provided me my very own hat. I think of Sam every time I see or wear it. I'm sure he's up in Heaven badgering God to make something up there better. He will be missed.
