Shorewood Hills - Samuel Robert Riceman Chappell was born on April 17, 1992 and died Tuesday morning, November 20, 2012.

Sam was a gentle boy who was kind and caring to his parents, Anne
Riceman and Rick Chappell, his little brother Jacob and sister
Sophia, his friends, small animals whom he loved as pets, and his
long-time devoted girlfriend, Ellen Hough. He had a smile and
friendly words for us all. Sam also was smart and literate with a
great mind, skilled hands, and an unusual ability to connect the
two in useful applications. He really knew his way around the
technical aspects of a computer. Sam would have made a great
engineer. Despite these talents, he was modest and liked helping
and teaching others without making them feel less knowledgeable
than he was, even though most of us were.

Sam enjoyed playing video games with his friends and brother, animated
discussions about technology, keeping company with Ellen, Thai food, and good books. Since graduating from West High School in 2010, he studied at MATC and worked for a company helping the deaf communicate by telephone. Besides those already mentioned, he will be mourned by
his grandmother, Rosine Chappell; his aunts, Susanne Arney, Andrea
Blum, Ellen Riceman and Lori Najvar; uncles, David Riceman and Glen
Chappell; cousin, Jonathan Riceman; and many friends.

Funeral services for Sam will be held Friday, November 23, 2012 at 12:30 p.m. FOREST HILL CEMETERY, 1 Speedway Road, Madison, WI 53705.

We will miss him so much.
