Passing of Allen Y. Miyahara, DVM

We are sorry to report that Dr. Allen Yasuki Miyahara, 88, a doctor of veterinary medicine for the Department of Animal Sciences at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and an Army veteran, died at home on April 2, 2016. He was born in Honolulu. He is survived by wife Sue K.

Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday April 27 at Hosoi Garden Mortuary. Visitation: 5 pm. Services: 6 pm. Casual attire. No flowers. No monetary offerings.

Dr. Miyahara was a pioneer in the veterinary field, and established many veterinary organizations including the Hawaii Veterinary Medical Association, the University of Hawaii pre-veterinary student program, and Human-Animal Bond programs in both Hawaii and Japan. He served as Vice President of the American Veterinary Medical Association, re-vitalizing the position by directly connecting with each veterinary school campus and passing on his vision of a strong, united veterinary profession.

We are grateful for his mentorship and countless contributions to our profession both locally and internationally.
