Where do you begin when your talking about such an influential,kind,amazing man,husband,dad,grandpa, and papa The memories I have of and with you I am so thankful for. Thank you for loving me and anyone around you! From teaching me how to pitch, making my own custom heavy ball that you hammered over 100 nails into just so I could get faster. To making that ball on a string around the basketball hoop so me and Sam could get our hitting in. ( even though we constantly would miss, hit the string and break it) To your brown van with the carpet in it that you would have those coffee hard candies you would give me secretly. I will never forget the smell of that van. To you constantly and everywhere singing your heart out no matter the situation. To always being the life of the party. The memories could go on and on but Ill keep them treasured for myself for now. I love you my first pitching coach, my cheerleader, my favorite person on the earth, I love you grandpa. Now rest and enjoy all our loved ones up there! Rest In Paradise

Put your hand in my hand From the tears and the pain and the fears and the rain. From the dark to the light you were once shining bright. Put your hand in my hand. Put your hand in my hand. Let me show you the way I will miss you terribly daddy. Last few years was so hard for you, losing mom and being diagnosed with cancer. You are now out of pain and sadness. Enjoy your life in heaven with only happiness. No more taxes to worry about, no more Dr. appointments, no more bills. I miss saying good night to you every day. I miss you saying good morning Mija what's for breakfast ; Miss sitting at Keno's with you. Just wanted to say, Thank you for being our Dad, Grandpa and Papa. Will forever love you. God took your hand and I am so eternally grateful. Love your daughter always , Rosalie

+Everyone was always happy to see Sam arrive at all the Family Gatherings. So many fun times way back then. We would tell each other jokes he would always say how proud he was of his Family. Carolyn and I are so sorry for your loss. Gary and Carolyn Scarlett

So many precious memories to share with such a wonderful man. I can still picture him playing his guitar around a campfire, or in one of the family members backyard. It seemed that beloved Simon was always the joy of a gathering. I cant ever remember him being angry, just always full of joy. Ill forever cherish his embrace during the passing of my own father. Rest In Peace uncle Simon.

Where do you even start when you have had 36 years of being the granddaughter of such a beautiful man? I suppose I should let my mind just wander and the ones that make me smile I'll share. Sitting on your lap as a small child smelling spearmint gum in your pocket, hitting whatever keys on the piano while you continued playing whatever song you were playing, Dodger games, keno, reading Black Beauty to cami, planting a rose Bush for her, filling a piggy bank until it was too heavy for her to carry, watching horse races, your contagious laugh, your dad jokes, your hat, teaching me Spanish, sitting at the head of the table, your long nails, the smell of your cologne, you being my biggest fan when it came to performing, giving me 5 bucks for all A's on my report card, video chats making funny faces, you singing in Spanish, you singing Elvis Presley, teaching cami dominos, sitting on the swingset with you, and finally singing como la flor to you as the last song you would hear from me in your physical body. You are our sunshine and I am so blessed to have had you as my children's papa and my grandpa Simon. You would say to us don't cry tears for me, celebrate me and know I am with nana now. We will all see you eventually and until then we can be thankful that we have you as our guardian angel. I love you!

I know Sam is happy now with the love of his life. Im sure they are dancing and singing their hearts out. He is at Peace. Ive known Sam for over 50 years he was such a wonderful person but such a horrible joke teller. Even when I didnt get it I still laughed because he enjoyed telling the joke. I will miss him but know he is where he is happy now. My heart goes out to all his family. He was a big part of all their lives and will be missed by all. Dear Cousin Sam Rest In Peace and will always remember the great times we had.
