  3. My condolences go out to yoru all. Very sad news about this passing, but what a legacy. Latrobe Valley Icon and respected member of the hairdressing industry. I recall asking Sam to working specifically in the Morwell salon so I could work under the tutelage of the owners. No other place could light a candle to the learning I received there. May you rest in peace. Maria Pesutto
