Sammy was good at that.Yep, truly a nice guy. Glad to meet him in 2002 for the first time and help him find stuff when Ace was going together. Been trying to find my pic that I took of him sitting in the door way of ACE at PF in 08. He was just sitting there I asked him if he was ok and he said "Just looking out at everyone and taking it all in". He will be missed.
Sammy was good at that.
At the GunTruck Gatherings, He would just look and listen while everyone planned and plotted to do something....then when he was ready he would simply say "can I just say this"? And then he would lay out a plan for whatever we wanted to do which included many things the rest of us hadn't even considered. It was usually Sammy's plans that got the mission done.
That he was. At the first gathering, Sammy and I were at the same table for the banquet dinner on the last night and we talked about these old trucks and I could see the wheels spinning inside his head. I don't think it was 6 months later when Larry F sent me an e mail that he bought a 5 ton and was going to replicate "Ace". It was many e mails after that on where to find stuff for the truck. I ended up letting a friend of mine sell two of my M2HB mounts that I had so Sammy could get all the 4 he needed and would later send Sam my APC lights as I had extras that I had collected over the years so he could finish.
Truly a honest gentilman
