Dear Norman, Josh, Jessica, and Fred, my deepest sympathies for the loss of Sam. He was a breath of fresh air, and had a heart that could fit the whole world. He was a gift from G-d to so many people, whom he helped in so many ways. May his memory be a blessing and may his soul rest in eternal peace.

Rev. Amiel Bender - 15 days ago

Sam was a wonderful and unique person. He cared for everyone and had a way of making everyone around him feel comfortable. He was a fixture at our early morning minyan and it was an honour and pleasure for me to read the Levi Aliya for him. I am going to miss the early morning pre-minyan conversation and joking around with Sam. Our community was privileged to have him with us.

Sam was a kind and generous stepfather to Joshua and Norman. He was a really good friend; we spoke every day, and if we didn't phone him, he would phone us. We are very sad and will miss him very much.

Sam was a very kind person. He was witty as well with his jokes that he would say to us when he used to come to Shomrim Laboker. Rest in peace Sam. B.D.E.

Sam was a one-off, a unique individual. Through thick and thin, he was upbeat and smiling, except after the loss of his beloved Cheryl - that was a terrible blow. But he did not let adversity get the better of him, in fact he managed to turn it into an opportunity for a mitzvah. He was generous beyond measure. My image of Sam is him on his scooter, tearing to Shul in the twilight. We send our deep condolences to Norman, Josh, and Fred.

Dear Norman and Josh, When you enter a synagogue, you do so in pursuit of spiritual connection and awakening. Sam and Cheryl became our close friends during trying and difficult when first Sam and later Cheryl were battling their respective illnesses. Sam and Cheryl were hidden gems cloaked in external façades of brashness and meshugas (craziness). We will never forget the hours spent together in the hospital and our journey together to New York for Reuven’s wedding. We shared times of laughter and times of tears. Sam and Cheryl were spiritual soulmates. They fulfilled the essence of holy matrimony: Ani Ledodi Ledodi Li - I am for my beloved and my beloved is for me. Sam adored Cheryl and Cheryl adored Sam. Sam embraced Cheryl, her sons and her brother, Fred. Baruch dayan emes- May Cheryl and Sam be joined together once again the world of truth. Bluma, Eliezer, Sarah and Reuven Turgel

Sam was a friend, met through a friendship with Fred Arshoff. Now Sam may be reunited in love with those who have passed already, like Cheryl. I wish all the best for Norman, Joshua and Jessica, and Fred. Peace. Shalom.

I am very saddened to have heard about Sam’s passing. He was very special to all of us at TBDJ. He brightened up the minyan she attended regularly and was always friendly and warm. His face wore a perpetual smile which reflected what was in his heart. I will miss dear Sam. BDE

Norman, Josh and family, I'm so sorry to hear of Sam's passing. I just spoke to him on the phone a few days ago and he told me he was getting better. Sam was a true mensh. I really liked him alot and I will miss him greatly. Baruch Dayan Emes. May he rest in peace. And may his memory and all of the good deeds he did be for a blessing. May Hashem comfort you amongst the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Howie Silbiger - 16 days ago

Sam would make fun of me for writing this: It is not often in life that you run into a person like Sam Kuperman. Sam was a funny, loving and generous man. He opened his heart, his wallet and his home to people who needed it, he cared about his friends and the people around him and he was forever dedicated to the love of his life, his late wife Cheryl. Sam and I were friends. We would talk a lot and when I was sick and not attending synagogue for a prolonged period of time, it was Sam who called and sent me Facebook messages to see if I was alright. When my father died a few years ago, it was Sam who called me and offered to help in any way he could. He continuously called me during the shiva, asking if meals were covered, if there was any expense or anything he could help with. Not because he was obligated, but because he cared. Sam was brash, loud, boorish at times, but he had a heart of gold. The charity work he did, even when he wasn’t healthy himself, the physical effort he put into things and the dedication to his family is his legacy. If we all helped even a quarter of the people Sam helped in his lifetime, without the expectation or desire of recognition, we would be as great as a person as Sam was. Society has lost a hero. I will miss my friend. I will miss our long drawn out conversations, our short internet chats and the belly laughs we shared every week. I’ll miss his voice, his dirty joke of the week and all the other things we shared as friends. He was a good guy, I’ll miss him a lot. May all his family, extended family, friends and acquaintances be comforted among the mourners of Zion.

Dear Norman, Josh, Jessica, Fred and family: I am very saddened to hear of the untimely death of Sam. I cannot picture Sam without a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye. He was always joking with everyone, just having a good time. He never complained, even with so many hardships. He will be missed. My sincere condolences.

Sheldon Eric Fried - 16 days ago

To My Two Sons Norman and Josh, my deepest sympathies on the loss of a beloved man - Sam Kuperman. He was a brother to me. His compassion and the way he looked after my sons were nothing short of wonderful. He was a second father to Norman and Josh. Both Sam and I would talk to one another and would do whatever it would take for the kids. Sam was never an adversary to me or the kids, but a true, thoughtful gentleman, and wonderful man with a pure Heart and Soul. He was a giving, caring, forgiving man, who would always give to the people who were very dear to him. Not only did his passing took a part out of me but I also feel very sad to both Norman and Joshua as they also had lost their father as well and I - a brother. May his Soul be at peace as he now enters the gates of Heaven and his reunited once again with his late wife - Cheryl Arshoff Kuperman in their next journeys and paths together. R.I.P Sam😢!

Hi josh and Norman. I was saddened to hear about Sam. I'll never forget how he was able to make us laugh at Passover dinners. He also took me in for a few days after my surgery a few years back because I couldn't take the stairs in my building. Peace.
