    Sam grew up with my father Bill Neckyfarow in Chelsea and was his best friend. Sam was the best man at my parents wedding and also was Godfather to me and my twin brother Charles. I will always remember him warmly.

    Love,

    Uncle Sam really was a treasure and losing him is a big blow to us all. I’ll never forget his warm smile, his laugh, and his generous spirit. A true gentleman, he was respected and loved by all who knew him.

    Love, Doreen, Erik and family
