In his 32 years Sam brought talent and joy to the barbering industry. He was a creative, a real grafter and he will be remembered for his fantastic personality and spirit. MB shares our condolences with his family, friends and all affected by his passing. 

Over the following pages we’ve shared some of the industry’s memories Sam. Of course this isn’t an exhaustive list of those who knew and loved Sam.

There’s a mix of good times, memories and testaments to Sam’s character.

“Sam was and always will be part of our family here at Hidden Heights Studio. We have worked with him every day for the past four years growing together, working on endless projects, had amazing fun times together and he became a best friend and a brother to us. We will hold our memories of  Sam forever in our hearts.”  – Marie, Aimee & Team HH

“You’ll always be my brother. I will always cherish the moments we shared together. All the chats we had, times travelling together, hanging out, chatting rubbish and just messing around. I can’t get my head around this right now, but I know you’ll always be looking down on me. Will miss our FaceTimes, messages and calls. It’s been emotional, it’s been eventful, it’s been hilarious and we appreciate you Sam. You’ll never be forgotten.” – Kevin Luchman
