James Hooks Obituary, Death Cause – This past week, our family was confronted with the tragedy of losing a loved one, and it is with very heavy hearts that we share this post with you. James Hooks, who had been serving as our Executive Sous Chef, passed away suddenly on Monday afternoon. Chef James was a great man who was also a fantastic chef.
He was also a remarkable father and fiance, a mentor to a large number of young employees, and a tremendous support system for our staff. Outside of his professional life, he was a weight lifter who held three Guinness world records. He found great satisfaction in pushing himself even higher at the gym.
His courage, spirit, and charisma will be sorely missed by each and every one of us forever. When he entered a room, his grin instantly brightened everyone’s day. His presence was something to be proud of, and his absence will be sorely regretted by everyone. During the entire process of renovating and remaking the Log Cabin, he has been working with us from the very beginning.
He is responsible for making this location an incredible place to work, and he takes pleasure in spending each day here with his fellow employees. As we grieve his passing, we ask that you remember his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
We would also want to ask that you please be patient with some of our staff members because this is a very difficult time for all of us; perhaps you could give the server, bartender, or kitchen staff an extra smile or two. Thank you very much for your cooperation. We want to express our gratitude for all of your ongoing support and assure you that James would be pleased with the level of service we provide.
