"It has been an incredibly difficult week at Hubbard Schools. On Tuesday, we learned that our food service director, Sam Mantas, unexpectedly passed away at home on Monday evening. Sam had been with Hubbard Schools for nearly 23 years. He was a familiar face throughout all three of our school buildings. To many employees, including myself, Sam was a great friend and confidant. We will greatly miss his candidness, sense of humor and dedication to Hubbard Schools," said Superintendent Raymond Soloman.
Sam’s family has entrusted his care to the Wasko Funeral Home in Campbell and will receive family and friends Sunday, October 9, 2022, from 2-4:00 p.m. at the funeral home and again on Monday, from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Funeral services will follow at 10:30 a.m. in the funeral home. Friends and family should feel free to wear their Buckeye attire if they wish. Interment will take place after the funeral at the Hall-Patrick Cemetery on the corner of SR 7 and Chestnut Ridge Road in Hubbard.
