Sam Forman, VL '18

It is with deep sorrow that we inform you of the passing of Sam Forman on January 8, 2022.

An avid sports enthusiast, Sam could recount the play sequence for the Patriots' Super Bowls, playoff games, the opposition and outcomes. Some of his favorite times were spent planning fantasy lineups with Ben, and weekly football picks with Dad. He was a connoisseur of the Tour de France, Formula One racing "push push", and a March Madness bracket scientist.

Sam loved to chronicle his family travels, their summers at the beach, countless spectacular meals, his adventures in the kitchen with chef Bruce, notably the homemade tomato sauce process. He spent treasured hours with Ben on the golf course, hiking Yosemite, and skiing the Rockies. Sam will leave behind a legacy to be challenged for his LS wrestling successors, his Lehigh classmates and Kappa Alpha Society brothers in arms. For his family he leaves us with hearts full of his belly laughs, twinkling smile, and endless hugs.

Sam leaves behind his parents Cary and Bruce Forman, brother Ben Forman, Nana Ellie Forman, Grammy Lorraine Greenfield, uncles Brian Forman his wife Dana and sons Matty and Trevor, Warren Forman his wife Debbie and daughters Jenna and Madison, aunt Donna Upson and daughter Sarabeth and uncle Barry Greenfield his wife Stephanie and sons Alex and Tate.
