He went to school at Ludford Street where he enjoyed football.  After leaving school he started work in Crewe Works as a storeman.

It was at Sainsbury’s that he met Jackie while he was working part time and they later married. Sam played Sunday League football and supported Liverpool and Crewe. Sam also liked to play darts. Sam and Jackie had been on lovely cruises and holidays including coach tours to place like “The Cotswolds and the Isle of Wight” His family described him as generous, kind, a thoughtful man who never said a bad word about anyone.

    So sad to hear of the loss of Dear Sam. It was an honour and privilege to have known you, and worked with you Sam. They don’t make them like you anymore Sam, no where near. I remember all of the good times being in your company, telling jokes and talking football, and all the great days of great fun, I always think of the fun and laughter when in Sammy’s company!!, Great days, great times, thankyou for knowing you Sam, and Thankyou for making going to work a pleasure. Bye Best Mate Andy Laffery.
