Sam loved his family dearly and was an active part of every one of their lives. He enjoyed bowling going to OU football games, the casino and taking family vacations to Florida, Tunica, Vegas, Shreveport and he especially loved cruises with his whole crew. Sam was preceded in death by his wife, Mary; parents, Sam Sr and Ethel Galutza; and brothers, Marshall and Dean Galutza.
