In Memoriam: Sam Sarick

It is with great sadness that I write about the passing of our fellow director, Sam Sarick on March 26, 2018. Sam was the co-founder of GFH Global Foundation and very instrumental in its success throughout the years. We have lost a great friend, supporter and director. Sam was the epitome of a gentleman and compassionate about helping those less fortunate than himself. We have travelled throughout the world together as board members and were stranded together on September 11 in Nicaragua and Honduras. We travelled in un-air conditioned vans and slept in the worst of hotels! But nothing bothered Sam! Sam was a wise and gracious man whose concern for family and friends is legendary.

It was a privilege to have known Sam and witnessed the amazing love he had for all his family, friends and colleagues.

The love of wine brought Sam into our lives and we shared some of the most amazing vintages together. His generosity, support, and wisdom were greatly appreciated. He will be deeply missed but will never be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to have known him.
