In Remembrance of
Takeo Uesugi

In Memoriam–Takeo Uesugi
1940 – 2016

In January 2016 the Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden lost a beloved benefactor. Takeo Uesugi, who was a widely known landscape architect responsible for the design and construction of many of the major Japanese gardens in Southern California, including the renovation and expansion of the Huntington’s Japanese Garden, donated his time for six years to restore our garden which he felt must be saved because of its cultural and historic importance.

He was a wonderfully kind and generous person, who served on the Garden’s Board until shortly before his death. His presence at the Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden will long be remembered and terribly missed.
