Samuel H. Trowe, a public finance banker, died last Thursday. Mr. Trowe had recently been diagnosed with Lyme disease, which had severely impacted his muscle control, and he died in his sleep of a heart attack. He was 63.
"Sam was always upbeat and possessed a positive attitude and a creative outlook on how to help his clients," said Frank Fairman, head of public finance services at Piper Jaffray & Co., where Mr. Trowe last worked. "He will be missed by all his colleagues at Piper Jaffray."
