Dear friends, my heart is sad and heavy this afternoon as I send this e-mail to report the passing of my friend Sam Schwartz. A legend in his own time, Sam is a terrible loss to the magic world and to me and my family.

Sam was an attorney and had been the attorney for Lou Tannens. He was a very close personal friend of Warren Kaps, Esq., Past National President S.A.M. Assembly 274 of The Society of American Magicians is named after him.

Brilliant in his magic, his love for the art spanned over 6 decades and covered countless effects and inventions of his. His book Sam's was released a few years ago, in hardback, and was an instant hit with the magic world that so deeply loved and admired him.

It was my honor to fly to New York to present him a congratulatory plaque three years ago when the Parent Assembly #1 of New York named him the Magician of the Year and paid him honors at the Tribeca Center. What a humble and appreciative man he was, gracious beyond compare.

Sam and Selma Schwartz, the eternal sweethearts, moved from Boynton Beach, Florida to New York to be closer to their only daughter and grandaughter. He is survived by his wife, daughter, grandaughter and son in law.

No further details are available at this time, but I will send them out as I get them. Please keep Selma, the family and all those of us who knew and loved him so deeply in your prayers; this is truly a terrible, terrible loss.
