Obituaries: Samuel Howard Aller

December 23, 1936 - March 11, 2018
A memorial service for Samuel Howard Aller will be held Saturday, July 14, at 4 p.m., at St. Francis Lutheran Church, 152 Church Street in San Francisco.

Sam was born December 23, 1936 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Evelyn and Sam Aller and was raised Lutheran. He died March 11, 2018.

Sam moved to New York in 1959 then relocated to the Castro in 1975, where he lived at 25 States Street until his death.

Sam's passions included the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II and opera, especially Wagner. He was a member of the Wagner Society of Northern California. His entire Wagner collection was donated to the society to be appreciated anew by other "Wagnerites." Sam also loved trains and streetcars.

Sam was a good friend, fun and funny, thoughtful, and generous; he enjoyed quality time with friends over cocktails, meals, and tea. He liked things to be just right ... "spiff."

Sam was beloved and is still missed by many, including his neighbors at 25 States Street who became lifelong friends; his church family; his nieces and nephews Deborah Kaplan, Carol Issacs Hussian, Mark and Jon Heck, Claire and Bill Finn Jr., and their families; and his sister-in-law, Dorothy Finn.

    Hi Hi, How my shameful nightmare unfolds into a beautiful dream. When I first saw this email on google, that we should contact him for a solution to HIV or any other disease, I was EXTREMELY skeptical, If there was a way to permanently delete my HIV, why would I have never heard of it before. During my research, I saw so many people happily sharing their testimony on how they got cured of HIV, HSV, HPV, ALS, HBV, CANCER by Doc. Yare, I contacted him to try his treatment method for my self and thank God I did. I place an order and receive it within 5 days time and commerce treatment as instructed. Four months ago when my doctor looked at me in disbelief and told me that my test all came back negative that my HIV seemed to be gone completely from my body, I literally could not stop crying tears of joy. I don’t believe in miracles personally, but it’s difficult to think of another appropriate adjective to describe just how effective Dr. Yare healing oil and herbal mixtures treatment has been. Thank you so much, Dr. Yare. Your help has provided invaluable. You can contact Dr. Yare by Website: or WhatsApp +2348148010628, +2348164653711, +2348031939465 for cures to that horrible and awful disease. Please once you are cured, let other people know about it. Together, we fight to stay healthy. For more enquiring, you can message me by email: Watch my Vimeo video of Doc.

    It’s obvious some patient with HERPES/HIV/CANCER are been enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure . I was infected with this virus 5months ago until I was introduce by a blogger who also narrated her story online on how she was cured of Genital Herpes after using Dr Ohikhobo Herbal Medicine. This is 2 months and 2 weeks since I was totally cured from Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promise to keep telling good about Dr Ohikhobo. Please fill free to share Your problems with him and don’t forget to tell him I did refer you to Him. Thanks. Write him on mail drohikhoboherbalcenter @ or WhatsApp him on +2348103601042
