OMG i thought it was a prank when i saw the thread header but was shocked to read what happened :(.

I met him once @ Auto Expo when he had driven down in a Nano from MH to DL for promoting Kenwood (i think ). He gave me a special treatment for me being a TBHP member and allowed me to spend as much time as i wanted in the stall.

Truly a loss to the Petrolheads community. May his soul RIP

Got the sad news when I read's Frank's Facebook status around 3 hours back.
The cause was not known back then, all we knew was that he is no more. The best writer on TeamBHP, someone who took awesomeness to a new level thanks to the Yeti persona and a humble guy at heart. RIP Sam, may the Yeti soul rest in peace

Very sorry to hear the news. Like other t-Bhpians had read Sam's travelogues and posts and was a die hard fan of his posts. Sam rest in peace

Shocked. Everyone who heard it cannot believe it.

He was the liveliest person on my Face Book Page, his wit, great sense of humour & good banter always enough to light up your day.

How can this happen to a man who gave us all this?

All his threads are block-busters!
Everything he did was different.
Many looked up to him, for others he was a friend they were proud to have.

Sam......we all pray in remembrance....

Sam, one of the pillars of Team BHP, so eloquent with words, with magic in the way he expressed his thoughts and experiences. It is a tragic end, but he lived life in a way that very few of us can imagine. We will miss you Sam. It is ironic that it all came to an end in his beloved Land Rover.

My favourite Sam photo. Typical Sam, he was always willing to be the butt of a joke only so that others could have a laugh.

This is a big loss for us! This is unfair!

Rest in peace brother. You'll be dearly missed.

May The Lord give the bereaved family the strength to come to terms with the loss of their loved one.

The great Yeti, you will be missed deeply. You could write about anything in the world and people would keep hitting the F5 to read more. Your style of writing, your sense of humor, your zest for living life, your travelogues, they will always be remembered.

Heck there are thousands of people in India who know your drivers name. Now that means something.

Go rock heaven so hard that we can feel the bass on this planet. The day's first cup of coffee wont be the same for a lot of us tomorrow. Heck when I see a couple of pumpkins, I will think of you.

Adieu Sam. :(

Today is a sad day, the world has lost a good human being and this community has lost one if its bright shining stars.

Sam was an inspiration for all of us, how to live life to the fullest, how to share your happiness, experiences and knowledge with others. Making everyone smile and wiser with his threads. Teaching through humor.

RIP Sam. You have left an un-fillable void.
