“For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun? And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.” ~Khalil Gibran

It breaks my heart to have to share this news. This morning, July 6, 2022, my husband, Sam Kendricks, departed this realm of existence for the next. He did not wish to leave us so soon, but his body grew weary.

Sam was lighthearted and fun unless the situation required seriousness. He specifically asked that he not have a traditional funeral.

While I don’t have any plans for a service yet, I will be organizing a celebration of life service for later this summer in Los Alamos and again in Austin, at the University of Texas, in the fall.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the J. Robert Oppenheimer House Fund of the Los Alamos Historical Society: The donations support the work of conserving the Oppenheimer home for future generations. Sam was passionate about the home and the history it holds.

Thank you,

ShayBurns Kendricks
