Dr. Zweighaft knew my first cat before I did, and cared not only for all my childhood pets, but subsequently my own animals, and my sister's. Dr. Zweighaft was one of my favorite people in this world, and he will be deeply missed.

We first met Dr. Z more than 17 years ago when our family adopted a Golden Retriever. He has been our family vet ever since. He retired briefly, but when we received the card in the mail that "man makes plans and God laughs" we were thrilled to return to him. He was a mensch in every sense of the word. And a man of science. When he learned of our son's science project he graciously offered us some supplies (to help culture bacteria!) and followed up to learn how the project turned out. There was always such a sense of gentle curiosity about him. He was the first person I knew with an e-book reader. It was easier to carry the large library he wanted to take on vacation with him. Dr. Z was the most caring man and our whole family will miss him.

I am very saddened by Hal's passing: I met him first years ago as we both were members of the Advisory Council to Cornell's veterinary school and I always saw him as a superb mentor and colleague who provided me with support in my role as a lobbyist with the AVMA on the topics of animal welfare. Although Hal did not always share my views, he remained a staunch supporter and a wonderful friend for the 3 decades in which I was privileged to know him. My sympathies go out to his family, of whom he was enormously proud and fond.

Dear David and family,

Though I never met your father, I now regret not having done so since he was a veterinarian with a big heart -- animal lovers tend to understand other animal lovers.
May you be comforted in his memory and many good works. Nice to know he was also a Cornell alumnus-- I got my MS and PhD there in 1970 and 1976/

I was always impressed by Dr. Zweighaft's commitment to organized veterinary medicine. He was a champion of the profession and will be missed. My deepest condolences to his family

I believe I first met Harold while serving as a deputy examiner for the Board for Veterinary Medicine. Over the intervening years our paths crossed at New York State Veterinary Society meetings and Cornell events. He always impressed me with his wisdom and humanity. The world is truly diminished by his passing.
My wife and I extend our heartfelt condolences.

Ii was a surprise to me when a very dapper gentleman approached me at the last station of the NYS Veterinary Licensing exam and asked my name as he extended his hand.
I was exhausted after the full day of testing but was honored to be approached. We shook hands and I introduced myself. He asked where I was working. At the time I was blessed to be working under the mentorship of Dr. Art Kronfeld. Dr. Zweighaft and I began a long friendship and professional relationship.He was an inspiring member of that group put me on the path of serving my profession on the regional and state levels. In 1997 I moved into NYC and became a neighbor as well. We would stop to chat on Columbus Ave and 86th St. over the next decade.
Dr. Z was a natural leader and fine gentleman. Truly, I am saddened by his loss and send condolences to his family.

It's the end of an era.
May he rest in peace.
