Graduating from Scranton Technical High School in 1941, Sam served in the U.S. Navy as a SeaBee (construction) from 1943-1945 achieving the rank of Chief Petty Officer (E7). He was deployed to the Philippines in support of WWII and was honorably discharged in 1945.

He retired in 1988 with over 28 years in teaching. Sam was an avid family man, churchman, and wood craftsman. He married Ann Sokoloski in September 1947 and was predeceased by his wife in 2007.
