Samuel Armeni Obituary

Sam S. Armeni was born on November 24, 1951 in Detroit, Michigan. He passed away on March 12, 2024 after a very sudden decline in health and was only 72 years of age. Sam is survived by his wife Jacci of 35 years, his son Chad and his wife Holly, and his son Sam Jr.  He will also be missed greatly by his two granddaughters Madison (13), and Scarlett (1) who loved to call him “Poppi”.  Along with his immediate family, Sam was also blessed to have many loyal friends and extended family members who will miss him dearly.

He was the youngest of three children to his parents Sam and Ida Armeni where he grew up in East Detroit, Michigan. After completing high school, Sam went on to attend Lawrence Tech University where he found his passion for home theatre. He then became an entrepreneur and successfully ran his home theatre business for over 30 years in Royal Oak, Michigan. Sam made Royal Oak his home and shortly after starting his business he met his wife Jacci and her son Chad. They went on to get married in Franklin, Michigan in 1988. He went on to become a great husband and step-father before welcoming his son Sam Jr. a couple years later. Sam was a wonderful provider for the family and loved his six dogs (Maggie, Shelby, Bella, Ruby, Motown, and Maggie) equally as much. His home was filled with lots of love, plenty of laughs, countless games of pool volleyball, nightly trips to his beloved hot tub, and of course the annual Dream Cruise parties. He loved to relax in the garage with a cigar while listening to music for hours. Sam loved rock and roll and the neighbors would soon love it too. A few of his favorite bands were Pink Floyd, Rush, J. Geils, The Who, AC/DC, and Led Zeppelin.

When he wasn’t listening to music he loved to take beautiful trips with Jacci, drive around in his champagne colored Corvette, travel near and far to watch Chad play in countless sports games, and watch his son Sam play the drums in the basement and eventually local venues during his teenage years. He always told his kids that he was going to “work until the day he died” and that’s what he did, his work ethic was second to none. Sam may be gone but he will never be forgotten.  His love for his family and friends was the Italian way.
