In Rememberance of Sam Bloom

Sam Bloom, President of Standard Pest Management, passed away early this morning at the age of 87. Sam started working at Standard in 1960 for his father-in-law and the business is now run by the 3rd and 4th generation of Blooms. Throughout the years, Sam grew the business that provided not only for his own family, but also for the families of countless employees. Sam was also an active member of the community, serving on community boards and dedicating his time and efforts to countless religious and political organizations. You could not help but like Sam. His friendly personality and positive demeanor always put a smile on your face. He was kind and always willing to help his friends, family, employees or anyone that came across his path. He will be truly missed.
