In Loving Memory of Sam Marie
August 5, 1923 - January 4, 2014
Sam was a member of this facility for 4 years, dating back to before the YMCA. He would come in 3 times a week to maintain his healthy lifestyle. In those 4 years, he built many relationships with the members and staff.
In Sam's earlier years, he was a bombadier in the 783 Bomb Squadron which served in World War II. The 783 was one of the four B-24 squadrons of the 465th Bomb Group, which was activated on August 1, 1943 in New Mexico. The unit deployed to the Mediterranean Theater of Operations in March 1944, where it was assigned to the Fifteenth Air Force. It flew combat missions over Southern Europe, France, Germany, Italy, Austria and the Balkans. Following his time in the service, Sam worked as a Geologist until he retired. His college degree was also in Geology.
Sam will be missed from all of us here at the Thousand Oaks Y.
