Default Robert H. Abady (June 18. 1938 - March 19, 2008

I just read about this off another site which I am no longer a member. I would like to thank that poster for bringing it to my attention.


Robert H. Abady
(June 18, 1938 - March 19, 2008)

Robert H. Abady, 69, of Verbank died Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at Vassar Brothers Medical Center. Mr. Abady was the founder and owner of the Robert H. Abady Dog Food Co. which settled on Smith St. in Poughkeepsie in 1979 from itís previous quarters, and the NutraVet Research Corp. Born in Curacao on June 18, 1938, he was the son of Jack and Fortune Farhi Abady. He left Curacao after the war with his family and was schooled at the Lycee Francais de NY. Having a great love for animals, he proceeded to develop nutrition and supplements for them over the years. Robert embarked on a lifelong mission to help people and their four legged friends, and became well known around the world for his vision. As a child he mended broken wings, as a young man he single handedly saved the Bouvier from a slow but certain extinction, and as an adult funded the most scientifically sound nutrition company of itís kind, focusing on animalsí nutrition and welfare. In a never ending quest to assist the needy, Robert became a source of comfort and knowledge for the ailing and the troubled, always ready to apply his polyvalent professional skills to ease their suffering. He was a complex and eclectic personality, a talented artist, and a bon vivant, but above all a great and caring human being who will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him. He leaves behind his wife of 8 years, Maya Sherpa; his mother Fortune; and his sister, Margo Sally Abady. Visitation will be Tuesday, March 25 from 1-3 and 6-8 pm at Parmele Funeral Home, 110 Fulton Ave., Poughkeepsie. Funeral services will be private and burial will be in St. Peterís Cemetery, Poughkeepsie. Memorial donations may be made in Robertís memory to Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, 103 Iron Ore Rd., Bloomfield,CT. 06002 (860-243-5200
