A Hudson Valley high school student who loved sports, has died at the age of 16.

Sam Lown, age 16, a longtime Dutchess County resident from the town of Red Hook, died on Tuesday, July 26, following a courageous battle with cancer, according to his obituary. 

Born on April 7, 2006, in Poughkeepsie, he was the son of Donald and Jennifer (Spencer) Lown.

Sam was a student at Red Hook Central School and had a "great passion" for many different sports including football, lacrosse, and basketball. 

He played and enjoyed them all starting with​ ​flag football, then Pop Warner football, Northern Dutchess lacrosse, and many CYO basketball teams, his obituary said.

​The New York Giants and LaMelo Ball, currently on the Charlotte ​Hornets,​ were among his favorites. 

​Besides sports, Sam​ enjoyed hanging out with his friends, biking and walking around town, and spending time with family, his obituary said.

He especially ​enjoyed going camping every July.​ ​

Sam also had a love for graffiti art. He started drawing when he was eight. Over the past few months, he became a "huge fan" of "Criminal ​Minds," and ​​"Shameless,"​ which he watched over and over.

"​Sam's strength, intellect, humor, and love for his family and friends kept his spirits up,​ and gave him such a strong will to stay on this earth as long as he could," his obituary said.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his siblings, Summer Lown, and Jake Lown both of Red Hook; his maternal grandfather, James (Barbara) Spencer of Kingston, along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and classmates and friends.

His brother, Dillon Denu; maternal grandmother, Jean Spencer-Coon; paternal grandparents, Lillie & Clarence Lown; aunt, Carol Cole; and his uncles, Jeffrey “ Yummy” Lown, and Frederick Lown predeceased him.

A visitation will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday,  Aug. 5 at the Burnett & White Funeral Homes in Red Hook.

Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Chapel of the Holy Innocents- Bard College, Annandale.

Memorial donations may be made in Sam’s memory to the Hudson Valley Hospice-Foundation, 80 Washington Ave., Suite 204, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.

People are only just realizing one ingenious way to peel an orange – it makes the fruit so much easier to eat

A TIKTOKER has revealed the proper way to peel an orange - and viewers are amazed.

The secret hack aims to stop the sticky, citrusy fruit from spilling all over orange-lovers.

TikTok user @kevglbach tried the ultimate orange-peeling hack in a recent video.

The idea came from another instructional TikTok, and the video begins with @kevglbach watching that video, dropping his own disheveled orange pieces, and then trying the hack he learned about.

First, he cuts an orange in half.

Next, he pushes on the back, or the bellybutton of the orange, and watches the magic, juicy jewels pop one by one out of the halved citrus fruit.

He takes one of the orange pieces out and eats it, clearly astonished by the ease of it all.

Comments erupted with shock and awe.

"This changes everything," one TikTok user said.

Another called out the TikToker for his expression that looked as if the whole ordeal was too good to be true.

"Bro has to try it in case it wasn't an orange," they said.

Someone else on the platform wanted to renounce it for the constant sense of correction it brings.

They said: "I'm so done with Tik Tok, just once I'd wish I could go a day with out finding out I been doing life wrong."
