Samuel H. Cohen “Sam”

Samuel Harris Cohen, 24, of Boyce, Virginia passed away unexpectedly on Friday, January 8, 2021 after a brave and hard-fought battle with addiction.

He is survived by his parents, Jay and Kathy Cohen of Boyce; a sister, Emma of Richmond; maternal grandmother, Karen Harris of Bluemont; paternal grandparents, Mickey and Mimi Cohen of Kingston, PA; and numerous adoring aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his beloved paternal grandfather, John Harris.

Sam was a 2014 graduate of Clarke County High School and member of Beth El Congregation where he became bar mitzvah in 2009.

He worked as a cook at Roux in Asheville, NC, on kibbutzim in Binyamina, Israel and Long Branch in Boyce, and for the past three years as a Residential Counselor at Timber Ridge School in Cross Junction, all jobs he loved.

A sweet, tender soul of a gentle nature, his well of compassion for others ran deep. He dearly loved and appreciated his family, expressing it often and freely.

Due to the pandemic, a service to celebrate Sam’s life will be announced at a later date.
