Schoonmaker III, Samuel V. - Naples  
Schoonmaker, III, Samuel V. Darien-resident Samuel V. Schoonmaker III passed away on April 23rd, in Naples, FL. He was 79 years old. Sam was born in Newburgh, NY, the son of Samuel Jr. and Catherine Wilson Schoonmaker. An accomplished student, athlete and lawyer, Sam will be remembered most for his gregariousness, sense of humor, generosity and warmth. Sam graduated, second in his class, from The Lawrenceville School. He attended Yale College, from which he graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa in 1958. He was captain of the varsity tennis team, member of the undefeated varsity squash team, and sang with the Yale Glee Club. Sam went on to compete internationally in tennis, including at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open (known then as "Forest Hills"). In 2008, he was inducted into the New England Tennis Hall of Fame. After graduating from Yale Law School in 1961, Sam started his career as a general litigator at Cummings & Lockwood in Stamford. He took a two-year sabbatical, following the death of his father, to serve as President of John Schoonmaker & Son Department Stores in Hudson Valley, New York. Once back with Cummings & Lockwood, he was promoted to partner and later to managing partner. In 1996, he founded Schoonmaker & George in Greenwich. A past chair of both the American Bar Association's and the Connecticut Bar Association's family law section, Sam was widely respected in the legal community for his combination of boldness, integrity, empathy, keen intellect and common sense. Sam's life was marked by his dedication to excellence in whatever he pursued. Whether in law, athletics, politics or community service, he always committed his time and talents to the benefit of all. His greatest passion in life, however, was his family, and he enjoyed regaling them with stories from his youth, watching and coaching their sports, and cheering on the Yankees and the Rangers together. Sam passed peacefully, surrounded by his beloved wife of 49 years, Carolyn, and his two sons, Sam and Eric. He is also survived by his sister Barbara Hill; grandchildren Janse, Ella and Frederick; daughters-in-law Andrea and Anne; brother-in-law John Hill; niece Catherine Conlin; nephew Jack Hill and numerous extended family members. A memorial service will be held at Noroton Presbyterian Church in Darien on May 19th at 11am, with a reception following at Wee Burn Country Club. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Huguenot Historical Society, 88 Huguenot Street, New Paltz, NY 12561, or to another non-profit of one's choice.
