Retired nurseryman Taro Fukushima (93) passed away on November 13, 2013 in Rolling Hills Estates, CA. He made a living from flowers – first as a rose and carnation grower in Richmond, and later as a wholesaler of bouquets and arrangements for southern California grocery chains. An entrepreneur at heart, he was always working on his next big idea.
