    Default Captain Sam Household

    I received the sad news that Captain Sam Household had died in February last year.
    Sam was Master on Tekoa for a couple of years in the mid '70s.
    His background was with Stricks and the ship's company on Tekoa were surprised and eventually enjoyed his style.
    He was a man of good humour and was in command of a happy ship.

    I sailed with Sam on the Tekoa in 1978, he was indeed a great Captain.
    I was on my second trip to sea as a second lecky, and stayed 11 months on board, it was the best experience of my life at that time. Enhanced by people like Sam.

    I personally did not sail with Sam but I knew him and his wife June well both in Stricks and later to the point that I attended his funeral. He was indeed a genuinely nice man and a pleasure to have known. His sense of humour came to the fore in 1970 when the Shahristan was hit a glancing blow in thick fog in the Dover Strait which damaged the starboard side superstructure. Sam was Chief Officer and his bathroom suffered more than most, so he had fun showing visitors in Southampton where the repair was done the bathroom with the best view in the fleet!
