Samuel A. Sayre II, 41, of New Philadelphia died Saturday, Aug. 22, 2009, in the Twin City Hospital at Dennison following a canoeing accident.
Sam had been employed at Zimmer in Dover for over 20 years.
Born Aug. 31, 1967, in Dover, he was a son of Samuel A. and Betty Savage Sayre of Strasburg.
Sam was a devoted husband and father who was well known for his loving kindness and his big smile. He enjoyed reading, music and astronomy, but he loved baseball especially watching his son play. Sam was also a car buff, starting in high school when he took his prom date, and future wife, in his '69 Chevelle.
In addition to his parents, Sam will be sadly missed by his loving wife, Michelle Page Sayre, with whom he would have celebrated 20 years of marriage on Dec. 16, 2009; children, Dylan and Samantha Sayre of the home; sister, Elisabeth (husband, Kasey) Kuhlman of Cincinnati; father- and mother-in-law, Donald and Millie Page of New Philadelphia; six nieces and nephews; and his beloved cat, Oreo.
A celebration of Sam's life will be held on Thursday, Aug. 27, 2009, at 11 a.m. in the St. John's United Church of Christ at Dover with Rev. Michael Lowry and Rev. Edwin Shriver officiating. Interment will be at the Dover Burial Park.
Friends can call in the Toland-Herzig Funeral Homes and Crematory at Dover on Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 3 and 6 to 8 p.m. Those wishing to express their fondest memories of Sam may do so by visiting the online obituaries link on the funeral home's Web site.
