In 1963 Sam and Peggy moved to the Cariboo. They lived in

several places and eventually settled with their family on a

ranch at Green Lake.

Sam was a logger, trucker, and rancher. In 1969 he took up the

sport of pony chuck wagon racing. He had a life long passion

for the sport and enjoyed all aspects of it. Sam also enjoyed

being involved with the rodeo community including being a

pick up man and raising bucking bulls. Sam eventually sold

his ranch after the death of his wife Peggy in 2004. He moved

to Lone Butte and then to Gateway where he continued to

ranch and sell hay with Jennifer. Sam will be sadly missed by

all those who knew him.
