“Sam was truly one of the kindest and most positively unique guys I ever met. The first drum corps show I ever marched was in 1965 in the Kankakee Challengers. Sam was an execution judge. It was dark out, we were in exhibition and Sammy was wearing sun glasses. I was standing on my first starting line, scared to death and our very young drum major asked Sam if he was blind. Sam responded, “Yes.”” – Gary W. Moore
The late, great Sam Geati, my teacher, mentor, and role model. Sammy at his last performance with CAC08. He was the teacher and inspiration to many younger Cavaliers who looked up to him as The Quintessential Cavalier. – Curt W. Johnson
