Lars



Lars Müller

On October 2, 2016, the Samba team lost a member and dear friend, Lars Müller. Lars was known for his red hair, crooked smile, stubbornness, but above all, his willingness to go to any length to welcome a visitor or help anyone in need. His positive outlook despite overwhelming circumstances taught all of us what is most important in life.

We miss him, and our hearts are with his family.

Peace to you, Lars.
