Condolences & Memories (13 entries)

  • Sam and Margret were active members in our club for many years and if the club was hosting a car show you could always count on the Kabans to bring one or two of their cars to show them off to the general public . As time went on Sam didn't do much with the club as his health wasn't the best but Sam fought all the way . It is a sad day when car clubs loose members and adding Sam to our losses makes 2020 just another bad year for us . Sam has left us here on earth but is in a better place showing his cars there and just waiting for his love to join him but is in no rush because he can watch her from where he is and remember their love they shared .Sam take care of yourself and rest in peace my friend rest in peace . - Posted by: Terry Farmer and family (Fellow Studebaker Drivers Club members) on: Jan 04, 2021

  • My parents Len & Sylvia Danyleko were very good friends with Sam and Margaret for many many years. I remember the many camping trips we took together, the help Sam was always willing to give our family which even included babysitting us kids when we were very small (over 60 years ago). His sense of humour was always there which turned any bad situation right around. He truly will be missed by anyone who knew him!
