It is with great sadness that I am writing to let all know that Andy (Andreas) Schmidt passed away on 12/30/2021 at his home in Russia. Many will miss him as President of San Francisco Bay Brand, friend, mentor, husband, and brother.
Andy, who was very passionate about the Aquarium and Aquaculture community, took over San Francisco Bay Brand, which his father, Anton, started over 50 years ago. He developed it into the premier retail brand serving the aquatic market. As many knew, Andy was a perfectionist that wanted to make the best product, run the best company, and be the best person he could be…..and for me, he was!
