CNN confirmed the death, saying in a statement that Bourdain was found unresponsive Friday morning by friend and chef Eric Ripert in Strasbourg. "I've heard from many that the past two years they were together were some of his happiest and that should give us all solace". His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much.
Obama's appearance with Bourdain was one of the many ways he sought to reach new audiences through pop culture and media during his presidency.
"But certainly, you know, the pain he must have been feeling, at least in that moment or in those moments, and the loneliness he must be feeling it's just terribly sad to think about". Wang writes that he was still in college and didn't even know who Bourdain was at the time. "I will sure as shit remember this trip to Vietnam".
"There are a lot of things to do and the first one is to not ignore the signs of someone, a child who is talking about suicide", Dr. Spruiell says.
Bourdain's death was the second suicide this week of a high-profile American figure. "I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine".

The first set had taken 57 minutes, in stiflingly humid conditions, but there was to be no let-up for the underdog in the second. That was swatted away with Nadal's double-handed backhand, though, and the second set duly went the way of the favourite.
Now the danger is that all the recent news about suicide will spur more people to take their own lives - which is why, now more than at most times, it's important to pay special attention to loved ones who may suddenly seem angry or distant or silent.
"He made me curious about being an actual chef in an underbelly world", Ms Poh said in the Instagram post.
Bourdain's mother, Gladys Bourdain, told The New York Times that Ripert had told her that "Tony had been in a dark mood these pats couple of days", but she had no idea that her son might have been thinking of suicide. "You go out there and show the best story you can as best you can. My love and prayers are with his family, friends and loved ones".
After a start washing dishes in a restaurant, the New York-born Bourdain gradually rose through the ranks to become a chef.
While at Les Halles, he found fame after the publication of "Kitchen Confidential". "He touched the lives of chefs, everyday people, drug addicts, everybody". He is the last person in the world I'd imagine to do something like that'. "It's a wrap!" she wrote in the caption.
