Blanchard, Michael Sam

Passed: September 15, 2013


Michael Sam Blanchard, 52, of Glendale and formerly of LitchfieldPark, passed away on September 15, 2013.  He was born in Lyon, France on February 6, 1961 to David and Linda Blanchard.

Sam, as he was known to many, was a talented musician and artist.  He touched the heart of everyone he met and was a dedicated professional in the behavioral health field in which he served patients with compassion and integrity.

He loved to laugh and joke and had a wicked sense of humor which often left people speechless.  He was a devoted family man, friend, and son; and would help anyone in need.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife Sarah Andrews Blanchard; his four-legged son Albe Blanchard; parents, David and Linda Blanchard; and Al and Kay Andrews; sisters Amy (John) Peterson and Kristin (Christopher) McMahon; brothers Stephen (Michelle) Blanchard, Kenneth (Lisa Shea) Blanchard, James (Cecile) Blanchard, Stephen (Vicky Campo) Andrews; nieces Julie (Steven) Sullivan, Alexandria McMahon, Emily McMahon, Julia Blanchard; nephews Zachariah Peterson, Daniel Peterson, Jacob Peterson, Evan Blanchard, and Charles Blanchard; grandniece Zoié Sullivan and grandnephew Brody Sullivan.  He was preceded in death by his beloved “damn dogs” Joey, Rachael and Taylor.

Memorial services will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 28th, 2013 at Thompson Funeral Chapel, 926 S. Litchfield Rd. in Goodyear, Arizona.  Condolences can be sent to
