Marcia, I was saddened to hear of Sam’s passing. I fondly remember all the wonderful, joyful times we all used to have together – Club Amerital dances, get-togethers and of course experiencing Notre Dame football games. Sam was such a good fun loving person. All your precious memories are a treasure for your heart to hold close for all times. May the Lord surround you and the family with his love to help you heal at this very sad time. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Karen (Tucker) Idle, Mesa, AZ

Jack Hammersmith on January 12th, 2015 - 7:01 am said:
To Sam’s family, we offer our deepest sympathy. Marcia, how difficult but how beautiful those last special moments with Sam must have been after a long and great life together, to Gina, the only other family member we know through taking such good care of my dad for several years, again, we share your sadness. And, of course, our hearts go out to all family members. As many other 1959 BHS classmates have already noted, Sam was a very special person to so many of us outside his family. His tireless energy, his infectious smile, his constant support, his positive spirit—for all this and more we will miss Sam, even those of us who saw him rarely but have thought about him fondly and will share in missing him greatly. Jack and Jean Hammersmith

When I was a kid Sam cut my hair up until the time when I was 14 (I am 23 currently). He was always such a nice guy and the barber shop was always a neat place. I can still envision it in my mind with the TV, the chairs, and the box of tootsie pops that always sat on top of the TV. Sam was always nice enough to let me take two suckers from the box. I still have the same styling comb that I've had since only God knows when from him and I continue to use it daily.

Gloria Swartz Pearse on January 10th, 2015 - 5:55 am said:
Sam was full of fun in HS and a nice person to know. His friends and family members will miss his ornery ways. We missed him at our last class reunion, for sure.

Brad Van Fleet on January 9th, 2015 - 2:54 am said:
My sincere condolences to the family of "The Notre Dame Barber of Bellevue". Sam Loparo was my mentor as a barber, when I thought of being a barber it was because Sam made his job look like he enjoyed himself. It was more than the haircut.... it was the atmosphere he created. He will be remembered!!

Denise (Sabo) Brenner on January 8th, 2015 - 12:44 am said:
I spent so many hours sitting in Sam's barber shop while my Dad and brothers got their hair cut, and I look back on those times so fondly! It has probably been 30 years, but we all laughed and shared so much that it seems like yesterday. Though I wasn't old enough to understand the OSU-ND rivalry in those days, I always found it fun to banter with him about the Buckeyes and the Irish. And I think the visits to his shop are what gave me such an affinity for Dum-Dum suckers. I know he will be sorely missed by many - condolences to Marcia and all of Sam's family.

Sam loved bellevue football, only when I played {1957 to 1960 } HA HA larry good class of 1960

rich woolsey on January 7th, 2015 - 4:15 pm said:
Marcia, John, Gina, and family I first met Sam when working at Loudy's. I then started getting my haircut at the shop! I can remember him bringing John into Loudy's on his day off when John was little. My son Scott loved getting his haircut there. When I think of Sam I think of CLASS! He was such a sharp dresser! I will always think of Sam when i hear Notre Dame. I'm sorry I won't be to the service please forgive me. But you all are in my thoughts and have my deepest sympathy and prayers. May he rest in peace. Know that he was loved by all of us and will be deeply missed! he was a great guy and friend! I'm a better person for knowing him.

Toni Hasselbach Rundt and Ron Rundt on January 7th, 2015 - 10:34 am said:
Sam was a real leader and figure in our 1959 BHS Class, not only in 1959, and perhaps even more as the years and Class Reunions went by. Sam was a real friend and a great and most enjoyable fellow. He will certainly be missed by all who knew that happy and proud man. Our sympathies go out to Marcia and family. May he rest in God's Peace.

Gloria (DeLiberto) Ayres on January 7th, 2015 - 4:50 am said:

Our family would like to wish our sincere condolences to Sam's family. Sam cut my hair ever since I can remember, always looked forward to it, so we could discuss Notre Dame & Ohio State sports...and many other things. He gave all my boys their first haircuts too. He will be missed! Rest in Peace Sam.

My sincerest sympathy to the Loparo family. I recently had the opportunity to meet & help Sam, he was a wonderful man with a great sense of humor, lots of love for his family & dog and tons of support for his fighting Irish. Rest in peace Sam.

Joan and Kim Knight on January 6th, 2015 - 5:45 am said:
Our sympathies to the family of Sam Loparo, a wonderful man and barber. After the boys got out of the baby stage they went over to the barber shop, and Sam would put on cartoons on the tv for them to watch. He gave them a jar of hair gel to get their crew cuts to stick up just right. One time I botched up my son's hair by trying to cut it before Boy Scout camp and he said I should have called him and he would have come over to fix it. He always asked about our family. My favorite story is when someone would open his door during OSU-NDU football season and threw in a handful of buckeyes in the shop and run off. Rest In Peace Sam! Same birthday as my Jake.

Tom Moore on January 6th, 2015 - 3:39 am said:
Please accept our sympathy. Sam was a great friend, a high school classmate, my barber for over 20 years, and a dedicated family man. His barbershop was always lively with Notre Dame chatter.

Our deepest and most sincere sympathy to your family. Living neighbors to you on Kilbourne for all those years, we were always delighted with the care that you both took of your property. We would watch and admire the endless hours Sam would put into trimming, decorating, and especially Christmas time! Our son, Jason Bauman, visited Sam for his hair cuts all through out high school. I recall Jason wanting to invite Sam to his graduation party, as they bonded with football talk! And Sam was there for Jason, something we will not forget. God Bless you all for the wonderful memories. Jason, as well as we now reside in the Birmingham/Royal Oak, Michigan area.

Dear Grandpa Sherred, I love you and miss you! I’ll never forget your kindness. I have no doubt that you are with the Lord and are probably discovering Beethoven or Elvis right about now. I just want to say thank you for the wonderful memories. First, your creative spirit is, in short, inspiring. As a child, I remember being awestruck at your creations. Whether it was a chair, a toy or even your own house, I thought it was all magic. The bouncing-galloping horse ride was probably my favorite! You showed me what it meant to create something out of nothing and how sharing that creativity could be so rewarding. I don’t know how many times someone has said, “I bet Grandpa could do that!” I think everyone in the family hopes their woodshop is half as amazing one day! You also helped make the holidays and summers truly special times. Even though us kids always broke the rules and probably were up to mischief, your patience had to be infinite and you always welcomed us with open arms. I think you knew Grandma would tackle me anyway if I got too out of hand! Other memories will always be close to my heart - rounds around the billiard table, tractor rides and watching you explain the names of different animals that passed through the yard. Leaving after a visit to your home, I remember waving the sign for “I love you” out the car window until you were out of sight. The whole time you waved back. It was the only sign I ever really needed. I’m so thankful you are my Grandpa. God bless you and keep you! Love, Eli

Bobbie and Morris Harvey on December 10th, 2014 - 1:42 am said:
Julie we are so very sorry for you and your family. It is a difficult and heartbreaking time but with the love that is in your family you will trade tears for loving memories. Loosing a parent is one of the hardest things we go through and we remember it all too well even though it has been many years. Just know that the love remains, in a thought, in a dream, in a sent. They are always telling us they still are there with love.
