It is with great sadness we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Sam Kowalko on October 31, 2018. A Celebration of Life will take place at 2:00pm on Saturday, January 19th 2019 at the University of Victoria in the Cadboro Commons Building. Sam spent probably his most influential 30 years in Victoria, where he was a fixture of the business landscape, countless amateur hockey executives, and patriarch for his brothers, sister, and extended family on the Island. He was the glue that brought so many people together in every facet of life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice in memory of Sam or perhaps someone who was close to you.
