Johnny was born July 24, 1921 in Holyoke, Massachusetts to Victor and Maria (Boutin) Carrigan.  He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.  Sam grew up loving sports, especially baseball.  He was an American League umpire during the 1950s and 60s, which he believed were the greatest years of baseball.  He retired from the Federated Department Stores in 1986.
In 1992 he moved to Alamogordo and married Rose Bushlow on New Year’s Day in 1994.  They did much traveling, delivering “meals on wheels” for the Senior Center, and entertained friends for many years.  They were active members of St. Jude Mission.
Survivors include his loving wife Rose of the family home; a son Michael Carrigan and his wife Deborah of Grant Pass, Oregon; two daughters, Patricia Dofelmire and Mary “Liz” McCracken, both of Sacramento, California; 12 grandchildren; three stepsons, Tony Bushlow of Monterey, California, Mark Bushlow and his wife Beth of Alamogordo, and Chris Bushlow and his wife Deborah of La Luz; four stepdaughters, Linda Bushlow-Rico of Arlington, Texas, Gloria Brown and her husband Roy of Port Orchard, Washington, Cathy Barton and her husband Ron of Alamogordo, and Susan Bushlow of Las Cruces; 14 step grandchildren; 10 step great grandchildren; and two brothers, Raymond Carrigan of Post Falls, Idaho, and Norman “Pete” Carrigan of Ware, Massachusetts.
Johnny was preceded in death by his parents; a sister Jeanette Baril; a son Christopher Carrigan; and two grandchildren, Billy and Jennifer Carrigan.
