We mourn the tragic loss of Sam Tilery
Yesterday, October 27, 2013, Tang Soo Do Mi Guk Kwan and the West Haven Academy of Karate lost one of their own. Mr. Samuel Tilery passed today in the presence of his family after being hospitalized after he underwent cardiac arrest earlier this week. Sam was a Cho Dan who loved Tang Soo Do and he will be missed by everyone who knew him.
Sam had a big heart...he was always giving to somebody...he was always calling in favors from one friend to help another friend. He did many such things for us at WHAK...remember those Hummel Hotdogs at the tournament or the Julia's pastry that was Sam getting his friends to help. In the end Sam's big heart just wasn't strong enough but I know that he is up there...somewhere looking to do someone a favor, looking to help someone...that is just the way Sam was.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Harrison Tilery, 3rd dan and his family for the loss of his father. Words alone cannot convey the depth of sentiment that accompanies the loss of such a good man. We love you Sam...God speed and may the wings of Angels carry you home.
