This page is a tribute to Same Beale, who was born on the 3rd of May 1947. Sam was a lover of all things mechanical and/or racket, bike, motor and winter sport related. These passions were equaled, and often surpassed, by his desire to teach and inspire others to enjoy his loves. He was a wonderful husband to his wife, Eleanor, and devoted father to his children, Sarah, James, Emma, and John. He also leaves a legacy of eleven grand-children, Isaiah, Isabel, Matthew, Rosie, Zoe, James, Jacob, Thea, Arlo, Nathan and Chloe. He will also be sorely missed by his many nephews and nieces.
I learned of Sam’s death some months ago with sadness. He was intelligent, witty, kind and life-affirming. I wish I had kept in touch and told him how much he meant to me. Belated condolences to family and friends.
Today I learned that you died last February. I'm so sorry Sam. I’ll never forget what we achieved in that 1976 F.3 season at MARCH. We were all young guys with a lot of enthusiasm, determination and skill. I remember when with part of the price money of the Montecarlo F.3 GP 1st place we had to pay for the damages we did to the two rooms of the Hotel Europe in Menton. R.I.P. Sam. Heartfelt condolences to the whole family. Bruno
A fine gentleman with an unrivalled enthusiasm for life
Always like playing Sam - a true gentleman
