Meet Sam

My Family

I have been married to my wife, Kimberly Stiele, for 20 years as of October 6th. We have two kids, Oliver 13, and Caroline 9. We are proud to raise our kids, and our dogs (Jelly and Peanut Butter), here in Hopkins. It was my father’s dream to live in Hopkins, and I’m happy to have been able to realize that dream with my own family.
