I remember Sammy well. He was a very close friend of my father Vetal Burby Jr. (JB) Dad was the plant engineer at Indian Head Plywood and Sammy worked for him. Dad also fixed TVs and Radios and I remember dad and Sammy sitting at a bench at one of the houses working on radios and TV. Dad passed in 1988 and I remember speaking with Sammy at Dads service. Sammy was a humble man and always nice to all of us who knew him. He will be missed.

We are so sorry to hear of your passing I first met you and Sammy Jr. at 5 years old and to this day apply the things you taught me to succeed in life and to really know how tube TV's and radios work with the coolest sound wave equipment that got Ronald Jalbert and I into the things we love today RIP.
