Fougy_Abraham_websiteAbraham Fougy, of Haiti and Boston, Massachusetts, died on Wednesday January 29th, 2014 at 8:30am at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. He was 83 years old. He was born on October 26, 1930 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti to Cazelise LaRoche and Jonas Fougy. Leaving his place of birth, he immigrated to the United States in the early 1960’s. In addition to his studies in Haiti he completed his education at Northeastern University in Boston and held Federal Communications Commission (FCC) federal and state licenses in addition to a Real Estate license. Mr. Fougy had a successful career as a Jet and Helicopter Engine Inspector at General Electric in Lynn, Massachusetts and earlier in his career in Cambridge as a technology laboratory assistant at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He was particularly known for his passion for radio broadcasting. In the late 1950’s he created Radio Union which went off the air in the mid ’70’s.

A unique soul, Mr. Fougy was very intellectual yet had a good sense of humor. He enjoyed listening to classical music, expanding his personal library of books on Buddhism, Ayurvedic Medicine, African and World History, and enjoyed speaking and reading in four languages: Haitian Kreyol, French, Spanish, and German. He will be greatly missed.
Mr. Fougy is survived by his former first wife: Gabrielle Emilien Fougy and their three children: Jean-Raynald Fougy, Maryse Fougy Mondelus, Yanick Fougy; his former second wife Ulda Francois Fougy and their three children: Albert Fougy, Wendy Fougy and Gwendolyn Fougy Henry; daughters-in-law Lilyan Stepha Fougy, Yuki Iwamoto Fougy, and son-in-law Robert D. Henry; nine grandchildren: Reginald Fougy, Gardite Fougy, Stephanie Fougy, Robers Pierre Armand, Sarghine Mondelus, Riviere Junya Fougy, Garcelle M. Joseph, Zhanee Cannelle Henry, and Miel Francois Henry; and three great-grandchildren, four sisters and a brother.
