Default Sam Grogan

Unfortunately Sam passed away yesterday just a few months after Diane passed away from cancer.

This is from his daughter's post on another forum:

As a tribute to Sam Grogan who passed away last night in Rome, Ga, BBQSuperstars' Jim Burg will have his show dedicated to Sam & Diane Grogan of Just Fer Fun cooking team. Call in at 7:00 PM and tell your story of Sam and/or Diane. I sure will miss their boiled peanuts!

Sam and Diane were the best of us. A tremendous loss and shock for us all.

There is no filling the void Sam leaves behind, but we can take comfort in knowing that he went out being with people who loved him, doing what he loved to do. No doubt he and Diane are organizing a potluck in heaven already.

It's interesting to think back and see how all things happen for a reason...Yesterday morning in Rome, the generator that carried all f the BBQ teams ran out of gas. Since Sam had a generator on his trailer, Big Jim served breakfast out of his truck beside SAMs trailer, so in a way, almost all of the teams got to eat one last meal with Sam and Just-Fer-Fun. Then right after the competition, Ms. D asked The Lord to call him home.
