Sam Bhuyan


Sam Bhuyan

‘m in the UK and met with Peter Guest on Friday. He told me that he had heard that Sam Bhuyan, a VP with Tim Haas and Former senior member of Walker Parking Consultants had passed away suddenly. I didn’t know Sam but Peter was eloquent in his praise for this consultant and engineer. When I returned to my hotel, I found the following on my computer from Tim Hass:

Kalamazoo, MITimHaahs
would like to take the opportunity to honor the memory of Sam Bhuyan, P.E., who
passed away of a heart attack Saturday, January 5 in Kalamazoo,MI.

had just recently joined our firm last October, as Vice President in charge of
our restoration division. Sam was
well-known throughout the parking industry for his extensive work with
restoration. Although he was only with
us for a short time, it was evident from the beginning that Sam had a great
deal of knowledge, talent, and passion for his work.

the past few years, Sam dealt with a number of struggles in his life, including
undergoing a heart transplant operation in 2005. However, these trials had provided him with a
greater compassion and dedication to serving others. Sam’s experiences helped him to gain a
greater, more meaningful purpose for his life, and this was especially evident during
the last few weeks of his life.

join us in remembering Sam’s family during this time.
