Hiroshi Tanaka | Age 93


Hiroshi Tanaka moved on peacefully, surrounded by the love of his family, after a fulfilling and adventurous life. Born in a small, picturesque town near Schenectady, NY, Hiroshi was known for his infectious smile and indomitable spirit. He was a celebrated horticulturist, whose passion for plants and flowers was evident in the beautiful gardens he created and tended to with a meticulous hand.

Hiroshi’s journey was one of resilience and triumph. As a young man, he served in the U.S. Army, a testament to his love for his adopted country. His service was characterized by the same dedication he applied to every aspect of his life. After his military career, he returned to his first love, nature, and went on to win several awards for his contributions to local botanical gardens.

His life’s work continues to bloom in the hearts of his beloved wife, Keiko, his three children, and his seven grandchildren, all of whom share his passion for the natural world. Hiroshi was also a pillar in his community, volunteering his time and knowledge to various environmental causes.

Hiroshi’s life will be celebrated with a service in the heart of the community garden he helped flourish, this Saturday at 11 am. Friends, family, and admirers of his green legacy are invited to join in remembering a man who planted seeds of joy and beauty in the lives of all he met.
