    RIP Sam9Ball

    Update 5/12: Thank you to all who donated via SBR Store. A total of $3,690 was raised.

    Update 4/14:
    Sam's wife, Carol, has created a GoFundMe page for anyone who is interested in helping.

    A message from her:

    "I am Carol Belila, wife of Sam Belila. Sam was an amazing husband, father and Papa. He passed away on Monday April 12,2021 from multiple medical issues due to Kidney failure. He will greatly be missed by all who knew him. He leaves behind medical expenses that we are not will be covered by his insurance. Anything will help and be greatly appreciated."

    It is with a heavy heart that we deliver the terrible news that Sam9ball has passed away. Sam was as classy as they come; kind, gentle, funny, a dedicated husband and family man, and a friend that would go out of his way to help anybody in need.

    We will share details of any fundraiser setup by Sam's family, along with any other information the family wishes to be made public. For SBR members who would like to contribute, we have enabled a special item in the SBR Store where point donations will go directly to Sam's wife, Carol. Please send my account a PM with any questions on this and use this thread to pay your respects to Sam.

    Rest in peace, Sam. We will miss you partner.

    I met Sam at the last bash in Las Vegas.

    He talked for a while, asked about my life, and seemed so sincere.

    A great guy.

    God bless his family & friends
