Obituary:
Samuel James Herringshaw born June 11, 1943 passed away May 3rd, 2012. Sam died at home with his family. He will be remembered for so many things, notably a loving & caring husband, father, grandfather (papa) and friend. Sam had a fun easy going spirit with a great sense of humor. Sam retired from Northwest Airline after 30 years of service. Sam loved to hunt & fish, watch his grandsons grow up, care for his loving dogs and support his Seattle Mariners. Sam had a caring heart for all. Sam would sit in a Wal-Mart parking lot at Christmas time selectively passing out envelopes of money to strangers. This was one of Samís many forms of giving to the world, a true answer to prayer for some. Sam is survived by his wife Mary, his parents Ab & Eileen, two children Greg & Greta, daughter-in-law Erin & Jackie, his grandchildren Ethan & Noah. Sam was a true light in this world; now in heaven he will be sorely missed. We love you dad. A special thanks to all his caregivers and those who knew him.
