I saw Sammy at an amway convention in the late 70's at age 19. His lyrics to 'love hurts' changed my life. It's now 2018 and just found he passed. Thank you Sammy, you touched many lives.

I saw Sammy numerous times at Amway functions. I was shocked to see his Obituary. What an inspiring human. He will be sorely missed by all who was once in his company.

I saw Sammy once at an Amway rally and was so touched that I have thought of his music many times throughout the years since. However, I had forgotten his name until recently when I found an old cassette cover I had kept in my "treasure box". I did a Google search and relived some of the beloved songs. So sad to find out that he has passed. He truly leaves a legacy of so many lives changed. Thank you, Sammy!

It's now 2017 and I just learned of Sammy's passing. I don't know if you will see this Jackie or if you remember me. I brought you to Morrisville NY about 1969 or 70. It was one of the highlights of my life and it had a profound affect on that small community. I hope you are well. I will remember Sammy and you forever.

i was searching the internet to see where Sammy was and what he was doing and I found this obituary. Sammy had a great impact on my life.. If it was not for Sammy I doubt that I would be alive to this day. I gave my life to Christ at one of his concerts. It was at Gahana Christian Center in Ohio in 1976. My life has never been the same. I went on to Bible College and have

Been looking at a stack of vinyl in my workout room for a couple of weeks with Sammy's picture smiling at me. Knew him from Amway days and I'm sure like many others lost touch, but his book and vinyl lived on. As a fellow musician and new Christian there was an immediate connection. Don't know how to measure the scope of his contribution to society, just glad to have been a part of it.
