One of Sam’s greatest loves was Softball.  She played on many teams, mostly in Naugatuck, from the ages of 5 to 18.  There are many amazing coaches, parents, and teammates that had touched her life.  Sam had a great heart and shared it with everyone she met.  She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, fishing, and listening to all types of music.  She always had a love for animals.

Besides her mother Eileen Carlson (Rich) and her father Francis Bombardier III (Ashley), Sam is survived by her sister Danielle Bombardier (Eddie); her brother Charles Carlson; her grandmother Helen Borbas; her cherished aunt Laura and uncle Thomas Petronchak; as well as many beloved aunts, uncles and cousins.
