Red Symons Pays Tribute To Son Samuel On 3AW

Red Symons has paid tribute to his son Samuel on Neil Mitchell’s program on 3AW.

Samuel died from cancer two weeks ago at age 27 after battling cancer since he was four.

Red Symons told Neil Mitchell, “One of the ironies of the situation is having spent most of my life making sure that complete and utter strangers recognise me in the street, I have received condolences from complete and utter strangers which has overwhelmed me with, obviously, grief. Sincere thanks to them”.

Symons used the Mitchell program to pay a eulogy to his son. “Samuel I have always loved you, I will always love you, I shall always have you,” he said.

Samuel had earned a Masters Degree by age 24. “He was the most qualified person in the family”.

Red said he spoke with Sam about death just three weeks before he died. Sam said, “I don’t worry about death because it has been part of my life.”
