A sad loss


Virtuozity - - Cigar News -

DAVIDOFF PAID ITS RE­SPECTS to tal­ented com­poser and cigar lover Avo Uvezian who sadly passed away on March 24, just a short time af­ter cel­e­brat­ing his 91st birth­day.

A tremen­dous loss to the cigar in­dus­try, Avo was ap­pre­ci­ated by all who had the plea­sure come into con­tact with him, from con­sumers and re­tail­ers to man­u­fac­tur­ers and ac­quain­tances.

“Avo has been a huge per­son­al­ity across the globe and was part of the Davidoff fam­ily for over 30 years and we will sorely miss his pas­sion, his per­son­al­ity and his won­der­ful tal­ents as a cigar man and as a mu­sic man,” said Hans-kris­tian Hoe­js­gaard, CEO of Oet­tinger Davidoff.

Jim Young, Pres­i­dent of Davidoff North Amer­ica, said: “Avo was in­cred­i­bly en­er­gised by his en­gage­ment with the busi­ness and was con­stantly bring­ing new ideas to think about. An evening with Avo was al­ways an un­for­get­table evening of great con­ver­sa­tion, laugh­ter and warmth. We shall miss him deeply.”

A re­lease from Davidoff added: “We ex­tend our sin­cere con­do­lences to Avo’s fam­ily – his wife Nivia, daugh­ter Karyn, sons Jef­frey, Robert and Ronny and their fam­i­lies.”
