Reflections: Remembering Sam Wyche, One Year Later

Written by Karen Brewer, Publisher

Never forgotten....on this day or ever. We will always remember a good friend, Sam Wyche. One year ago today, Sam passed from melanoma, after having survived a heart transplant in 2016. 

I first interviewed and wrote an in-depth story about Sam in 2001, when The Pickens Sentinel's then owner, Jerry Alexander, asked me to do so, as Sam and his wife, Jane, had moved back to Pickens, and Sam had visited the Pickens Rotary Club, where Jerry was a member. I would later write more stories and take photographs, and Sam would write a regular column for our newspaper. As well as friends, Sam and Jane also became fellow church members when they joined our church family. 

Here is the link to a Reflections column I wrote in January of 2020: In Memory of Sam Wyche. That column is more detailed about him through the years.
