Forever in the hearts of many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Predeceased by brothers Jack and Jim.
Samuel served in WWII as a pilot in the RCAF flying Lancaster planes based out of England. Upon returning from the war, Samuel spent the majority of his career at Ontario Hydro where he worked for over 35 years.
