Sam Pace Of The Esquires Seriously Ill

All About the SOUL Louise

 
Posted (edited)

Sadly Sam Pace one of the original members of The Esquires is seriously ill (as opposed to the original information I was given that he had passed away on Friday night) he is receiving treatment for cirrhosis of the liver a condition that he has been suffering with for the last couple of years.

As well as the Esquires, Sam has also featured in the line up of several other Milwaukee groups including "Ice" and "Fairplay". He was very proud when we at Soul Junction released one of his and Fairplay's unissued tracks "Don't Let Our Love Go" earlier this year.

It seems rumours of his death were greatly exaggerated.

Lets hope he pulls through.

Aid.

Sam Pace update:

I was told today by his one of his oldest friends and one time Esquire David Bursey that Sam,s family had informed him of Sam passing. When David contacted the family again today to enquire about the funeral arrangements, he was told that Sam was still hanging on in there, although he is in a coma. David is going to visit him tomorrow.

I have only recently begun to fully appreciate just how good the Esquires were, a tremendous group.

Sad news.

Very sad. I interviewed Sam on the radio in 2008. He was a super nice guy.
