(Yuhas) Netcoh for fifty-seven years. Sam proudly served his country in the United States Air Force, and, upon completion of his military service, first worked as a Coca-Cola truck driver. In 1964, he began his career in sales as the RI Sales Representative for Duo-Fast Northeast. He went on to open his own business, Netcoh Sales Co., in Warwick in 1991. Collectively, his career in the fastener business spanned nearly sixty years. Sam's hard work and dedication extended into all aspects of his life. He was a devoted and caring husband, father, and grandfather. Since 1964, he had been a member of St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Warwick, where he served as an usher. Always eager to help others, he regularly donated to various charities and for decades had sponsored foster children through Plan International. Through his business, he supported the St. Francis Yearly Food Drive, Children's Wishes, and the Warwick FOP, and he was a sponsor of the Toll Gate High School Tribune. Additionally, in partnership with the RI Building Officials Association, Netcoh Sales was a generous supporter of the International Code Council High School Technical Training Program and donated to "Tools of the Trade" for the student participants, including many students from the Warwick Area Career and Technical Center. Sam enjoyed meeting the students and their parents when they visited Netcoh Sales to use their gift certificates to select tools to embark on their careers.
