A generous helper is honoured after two decades of giving
SAM Myers, who died unexpectedly earlier this month, has been recognised for his many years of community work.
Members of the management committee of Coffs Coast Meals on Wheels wanted to publicly acknowledge 88-year-old Mr Myers' untiring dedication to the service in the past 20 years.
Service manager Bronwyn Webber said during that time, Meals on Wheels had benefited from the community spirit Sam displayed in many different capacities.
She said this included delivering meals, serving with the management committee and working with staff and volunteers of both Meals on Wheels and the Chill Out Cafe, where his heart lay.
"Sam would bring fresh bananas in twice a week to give to our consumers and other HACC service consumers in the community village," Ms Webber said.
"A big thank you to Wally Borsato for donating the bananas.
"Sam worked tirelessly for both services, doing anything that was needed and always coming up with new ideas for improvement, helping to make the services as great as they are today.
"He was always proudly supported by his wife, Gwen, in everything he did."
Sam was made a life member of Meals on Wheels in 2013.
A much-loved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Samuel Alick 'Sam' Myers died peacefully but unexpectedly at his Coffs Harbour home on July 4. His funeral was held on July 9
