Please accept my condolences.
Sam was a special person and will always be remembered. I pray that the memories of him will provide you with some comfort during this hard time.
My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.
I was so terribly sorry to hear about Sam. My deepest condolences to Hannah and all his family. I can’t imagine what you all must have gone through.
I am sorry I was unable to make the funeral. I just wanted to say how much I admired and respected Sam through all the time I worked with him. I was fortunate enough to help mentor Sam when he started at Anglian Water, and was deeply impressed by how quickly he made the transition into hydrogeology from ecology. He was one of the most talented, hard working people I knew and always quick with new ideas and to challenge the status quo. Far more than that he was always a pleasure to work with, even in difficult circumstances, and brought a great sense of humour to any challenging time - both in the field and back in the office.
Sam was generous beyond work and became a friend whilst we were in Cambridge. I will be ever grateful for him telling my girlfriend, Hannah, and me about the Rinjani volcano trek in Lombok, and lending us the lonely planet guide which gave us both one of the most amazing experiences of our lives. I can imagine what a brilliant climber he must have been and budding adventurer.
It is so sad we have lost a highly talented environmental scientist and engineer with so much potential. But I know he has touched the lives of a great many people and is a role model to anyone his age.
With deepest sympathy,
