Passing

Sam.

World War II hero.
Sultan legend.
Owner of Sultan Saw Shop.

He died this morning in the hospital. This man sharpened my chains for years. This man sharpened my grandpa's chains while my grandpa was a faller. This man sharpened my dads chains. He always used to tell me he would soon have his "young assistant" do everything. The assistant was 68 last year. Now the shop is on the market. Little tragedies surround us every day.
