It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of our longtime CEO, Dr. Sam Durso. In December of 2014, Sam was diagnosed with a glioblastoma brain tumor. With his usual determination and moxie, Sam fought hard and lived long beyond the usual prognosis for those with similar diagnoses. Sam’s contributions to the success of Habitat for Humanity of Collier County are immeasurable and he will be greatly missed by so many.
Thank you, Dr. Sam, for your leadership, vision, inspiration and guidance. In tribute to your legacy, we will continue to work towards the day you envisioned when every child in Collier County has at least a simple decent place to live.
We will be celebrating Sam’s life with a funeral service on Monday, January 16, and all are more than welcome to attend and pay their final respects.
