He graduated Gordon High School in 1963 and was the class president. Following High School Sami attended the University of Georgia and Emory University and held degrees in chemistry, physics and dentistry. Upon graduating college he held various positions including custodian, hospital orderly, CDC Researcher and Forensic Dentist. Sami loved to play soccer (especially with his kids), hunt, farm and sail during his free time. Sami accomplished many extraordinary things during his time here, but his greatest love and joy was his family.
