Sam grew up in Austin; graduating from the original S.F. Austin High School in 1957 where he played varsity football as part of the offensive line; he served in the US Army before studying at The University of Texas
at Austin. Sam was an active part of the Austin commercial real estate community for many years and was just as active in the Austin golf scene, serving as President of the USGA - Austin Chapter. On the golf course he established countless friendships and relationships that he still had fond memories of until the day he passed. After countless rounds of the humbling game of golf he was thrilled to finally make a Hole-in-One late in his golf career.
