The son of the late Samuel Y. Hyde III & Mary Louise Felber Hyde, he was born on July 14, 1942 in Manhattan, NY.
Sam loved spending time with his family, traveling around the world, exercising, learning new things to satisfy his curiosity, enjoying his favorite foods, and walking with his “retirement buddy,” Cannoli. He was an avid New York Yankees and Green Bay Packers fan, true to his New York and Wisconsin roots. Sam was known for his sarcastic sense of humor and his mischievous nature, capitalizing on his inherent ability to make others laugh every day.
