We moved into The Hamilton in April 2012 and have only known Sam & Kim for about 10 months. They were both an inspiration and we are truly saddened at Sam's passing. W wonderful, positive, upbeat gentleman!
sam was a big part of palo alto and will be missed by all of us.
My husband and I are residents of The Hamilton also. It was a dream of Sam's that he made a reality with his partners that all of us benefit from. He was an extraordinarily positive man with an unmatched energy level. We will miss his presence every day.
Sam Webster was a true mensch in every way!! He will be sorely missed. Dick Maser
Sam Webster was a wonderful example of the "Greatest Generation." A true patriot. We've lost a piece of Palo Alto history.
I am extremely grateful for his service and contributions to our nation and our community. My deep sympathies to his family.
I echo all the above comments. Great man. Great life. Great loss. RIP, Sam Webster.
Sanford, Sammy, Sam Webster....What a lovable guy! He was a giant of a man whom we will miss tremendously. RIP Sam!
On behalf of my parents, Sy and Bess, we send our condolences to Kim and the family. My parents greatly admired Sam and were terribly sad to have to move away from The Hamilton after almost 10 years there.
A long time friend and ardent admirer of Sam, I mourn his passing. My sincere condolences to Kim.
Sam was an incredible man; an inspiration
to me in so many ways. I'm sad at his loss
he can never be replaced in my life.
My heart goes out to Kim and the family.Please accept my sincere condolences.
Sam Webster was a true humanitarian, people person, and one who accomplished many meaningful works. In his long list of real estate developments throughout Palo Alto, it should be noted that he was one of the pioneers to build, manage and own affordable housing in Palo Alto. Once again, being ahead of the curve in seeking Section 8 contracts with HUD for two such properties, which still house and serve some of this community's low-income residents. I am also proud to note that he signed my paychecks for ten years during the 1990's. Rest in Peace Sam. You did great works, and helped many people in your life time. Peace be with your family.
Sam was a true American and gentlemen in every facet of his life. His service to our great country and our wonderful community was just part of his incredible life. His ever-present optimism was his "calling card". Sam was an inspiration to me and anyone whom he came in contact with. Our hearts go out to his family. He will be dearly missed. Heaven just received a wonderful new spirit!
Sam was our next-door neighbor for many years. What a guy! Energy, intellect, good humor, devotion to his wife Kim ! We had some really fun times together. I remembering his asking my British husband Jonathan to give him and his friend Duane Kalar lessons to be "British butlers" at a charity fundraiser. A great family, a great man. We will miss him!
Goodbye, Sam. Love, Marlena
I had the pleasure of working for the Websters and so enjoyed Sam's sense of humor, always greeting me with a "hello Shaboom, Shaboom"!
His number one focus and love for Kim is the stuff of the greatest love stories and my love and prayers go out to her.
"Mr Palo Alto"will be remembered always
