Sad News On A Beloved Everett Figure, RIP Samiu Bloomfield

January 19, 2020




Over the weekend used our social media pages to help spread word that Samiu Bloomfield had gone missing.

Sadly word in this morning from the Everett Police Officer’s Association that Mr. Bloomfield has passed away after being out in the weather the past few days. For those of you not on social media here is the posting from the EPOA Facebook Page.

A hats off and head down thoughtful show of respect and sympathies to Samiu and his family.


Many of you may remember Samiu standing on the corner of Everett Avenue and Broadway in Everett WA; waving his American flags. Every morning I would wave, honk, give him a thumbs up! Then he was gone. I wondered where he went, I knew his health wasn’t 100%. I missed seeing the wild patriotic man on the corner. Halloween he wore a Friday the 13th Jason mask, still waving his flags. Samiu loved our country and was a proud immigrant. His house was even painted red, white, and blue. His wife passed away and he sadly lost the house. He still marched in the Colors of Freedom July 4th parade.

SAMIU was having medical issues prior to going missing. For three days he went with no food or water and to add the freezing temps his body was shutting down. A Good Samaritan found him and called for an ambulance. He was taken to Harborview medical where they performed surgery. He wasn’t able to recover and passed at around 6:30am 1/19. RIP sir.
