It is with great sadness that we said goodbye to Sam as he passed into the loving arms of Jesus. Sam was born in San Jose, California and moved to Pennsylvania with his family where he graduated from high school and joined the Army Air Force. He had many tours overseas but his favorite station was recruiting duty in New York State in which he excelled. After retirement, Sam opened the first men's hair styling salon called the Men's Room. He dearly loved his family and leaves behind former wife, Janet Taormina Rowell; his children, Randall Taormina (Jacqueline), Joyce Luke (Bennett), and Steven Taormina.  His beloved grandchildren; Brandon Luke (Ellie), Blakely Luke (Maylin), Jelaine Brown (Bradford), Cheryl Taormina, and her wonderful son, Trevor.
