With his children at his side at home, Sam C. Mulholland passed peacefully on Friday, March 6 at the age of 90.

Mulholland enjoyed sports both as an accomplished player and coach his entire life. He had a keen interest in horse racing as a driver, trainer and breeder of Standardbreds – a family legacy inherited and passed on. Sam had an infectious laugh and a spontaneous sense of humour that he shared unreservedly with his family and friends as well as his co-workers in his 32 years at Lake Ontario Cement Limited.

The family extends their gratitude to Dr. Peter Johannsson and the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital staff during his recent hospital stay, and Prince Edward Family Health Team nursing and personal care workers for their dedication to Sam’s care during his final days at home.

Predeceased by his beloved wife Mary (née Abrams), Mulholland is survived by his daughter Jane (Richard Shannon) of Milford, Ont., son, Samuel R. of Picton, Ont., daughter-in-law Lynda of Belleville, Ont.; granddaughters Brittany (Dustin Putman), Samantha (Josh Carney) and Jessica (Justin Suddard); and great-grandchildren Hendrix, Torsten, Margaret, Gwyneth, Miriam and Nora. Sam was the brother of Douglas (late Ethel) of Kingston, Ont., Reginald (Shelly) of Leamington, Ont., and Lynda (Art Schroeder) of Kingston, and the brother-in-law of Rhea Abrams of Kingston.

At Sam’s request a cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral. A private family service will take place at Desert Lake later this spring. Memorial donations to the PECMH Foundation ‘New Build’ Program or Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to the Whattam Funeral Home, Picton, Ont.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the friends and family of Sam Mulholland.

Don Mark SAID...

I grew up with Sam during public school. He was the best player/best friend; we were all best friends from the same neighbourhood. His dad was the coach for years and even tho Sam would score 2 , 3, or 4 goals in a game his dad still hollered at him. At 15 years of age he entered a track meet competing against soldiers from the army camp and won all 5 events. He went on to the OHL for Galt Blackhhawks. Then went on to play in the NHL for Detroit.

Sam was just a big lug who never complained He was also an excellent hardball pitcher and being so good was always cleanup hitter. I haven’t seem Sam for many years but some people you just don't forget.
