Isaac Hasday, 88


After a brief, serious illness, Isaac Hasday, the father of Dr. Keith Hasday and Craig (Ina) Hasday, both of Rockville Centre, died peacefully on the morning of Aug. 13. He was 88.

Isaac is also survived by his wife of 68 years, Dora, sons Chester, Robert and Scott, 15 grandchildren and four great- grandchildren.
