an update--He died of a heart attack. He had son and daughter in Navy and they had both just came to visit recently. Matter of fact daughter just went back to US 2 weeks ago. He and wife Kristy also

She will be okay. He and I spoke about that some time back.

Just found out. I'll miss you Sam.

I got the message this afternoon from his workers. Me and Sam was close Friends! I known him since 2006. Had a lot of

parties together. Met him first at another hangout at Jim Meatcalf, behind Gaisano Carcar. He too died in 2007. Remember

Sam started his restaurant across the street from Gaisano way back.

 

I'm sorry to hear about his sudden death. When I got the message I called I friend to tell, and he said that Sam was fresh and active the day before. He was there!

 

Peace be whit you Sam! My thoughts and Condulanses to the family! RIP Sam!

Surprised there havent been more comments about Sam.

If anyone is interested-His wife told us last night that she was trying to get all the paperwork done so that their 2 Sailors could get the approval to come here for the funeral.

I don't know how many people who are active on the forums, knew him. However, I do know there are a few down in Argao and Dalaguete who are members, but don't post that often.

Didn't know him on a personal level but always stopped at the Campfire Grill if I was near there. Sam was always cordial and if nobody was in there besides him he'd ask if we wanted to watch something else on the TV. Tacos, a burrito, and deviled eggs. A lethal combo. I think I still have their cell number on my phone. If I knew I was going to be there I'd txt ahead for them to buy a Grande and put it in the freezer. Never worked but it was worth a try. Sam was agood manager always asking how the food was. Hope the resto stays.

 

RIP Sam and prayers to the family.

There was really large turnout for Sam's funeral yesterday including many "whitefaces". I guess maybe 20-25 foreigners were there. Didn't know there were any nice cemetaries about-but this is really a nice clean and peaceful site.

BTW Kristy said she will re-open the grill next Monday morn
