Passing of Sam Fujisaka - Please share Memories


I am sad to post that one of the most loved Chowhound posters, Sam Fujisaka, passed away today after a long battle with Cancer. Those of us who knew Sam through his posts admired his wit, his knowledge and his ability to engage many of us in both scientific and humorous interchanges. A Facebook page “Friends of Sam Fujisaka” has been established to post thoughts and tributes to this icon who dedicated his life to making this world a better place.

Thank you Sam for all the great rides. Insert Colon, dash, open parentheses, open parentheses.


The family in Cali will be able to see all the wonderful friends and memories Sam made on Chowhound if the posting are placed on the Facebook page. Thank You

          I just saw several tribute cooking/recipe limericks to Sam on a NAF thread. He was wonderfully erudite, an amazing poster with amazing life experiences and an amazing knowledge of world food, and someone to whom we could all aspire to be just even a little bit like.

          Sam, you will be missed.

        2. thank you, jfood. i'm sad to lose his voice of wit and gentle good humor.

          1. Thank you for letting us know. So sad, his posts were always appreciated and informative. His passing will certainly leave a void on CH. :-(
