Samuel “Cyclops” Vosovic, 64, of Lowell, passed away Sunday, March 4, 2018.
He is survived by his parents, Sava and Dolores Vosovic; brother, Michael (Mary) Vosovic; twin brother, Daniel (Sharon) Vosovic; step-daughters; grandchildren; and several beloved nieces and nephews, who also loved Sam dearly.
In 1976, Sam lost his eye in a serious accident, in which he could have died. The 42 years since that accident have been a great gift to all those who knew him. Though he was bitter at first about the loss of his eye, he experienced a life-changing moment as he exited the hospital elevator one day on the wrong floor. He walked out into the children’s burn unit, and it forever changed him. Sam went out of his way to befriend those around him, overcoming judgment about his appearance. He was compassionate and would never hesitate to help those around him. Sam’s great love for his Harley Knucklehead was well-known. He was a great friend to many, and will be incredibly missed.
A memorial service will be held at a later date in the summer. Memorial contributions may be made to Metro Health Hospital Foundation, Cancer Center, 5900 Byron Center Ave. SW, Wyoming, MI 49519.
