I'll always remember he would say "stir in love" and "always look towards the sun" -Katie , Iowa

I met Soleil while working at the Bread Garden and remained friends with him for many years after we both had moved on. Soleil had such a great spirit and was a joy to be around. You will be missed my friend.

T.J. Just know I am praying for you and your family. I will never forget Chef Soleil and his wonderful smile and charasmatic personality. He was one of the most gifted chefs I have ever met. May God comfort you and your family at this difficult time.

May the departed soul rest in peace

May God Bless you and your family in this time of sorrow

Paix à son âme
