Obituary

Gregory H. Laham, of Westwood, passed away peacefully on Sunday November 20, 2022 from complications due to Parkinson's Disease. He was 73 years old.

He leaves his dear and devoted wife of 51 years, Deborah (MacLean) and two loving sons, James G. Laham and his wife Lisa of Chelmsford and Keith G. Laham and his wife Jennifer of Dedham. He was the cherished “Grampy” to Martin, Jordan and Savannah Laham. Also survived by many family members, nieces, nephews, friends, and a close cadre of long-time employees that he considered to be members of his extended family. Dear brother of the late Jeffrey Laham. Loving son of the late  Herbert and Lorraine (Deban) Laham.

Greg was a proud graduate of Boston Latin School (1967) and Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, class of 1973. He was the owner of Sullivan’s Pharmacy in Roslindale since 1976. Through his dedication, work ethic, and entrepreneurial spirit he was able to grow his small corner drugstore into a sprawling healthcare business that has touched the lives of people all over the State.

Greg was influential in every community in his life. In pharmacy, he served on the boards for many professional organizations including the Massachusetts Independent Pharmacist Association (President), the Boston Association of Retail Druggists (President and Chairman), Northeast Pharmacy Services Corporation, Boston Medical Center, and the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, where he served as the chairman of the building committee. Beyond his time with various organizations, he was a constant ambassador for independent pharmacy, and he worked as a pharmacy consultant for various news sources and media outlets. He would often dedicate his time to speak to students about the virtues of a career in independent pharmacy and was proud to have been preceptor to many young pharmacists that carried on the independent tradition that he loved. For his work in pharmacy, he received the Bowl of Hygeia award.

He also served on the boards of many organizations in his local community including the Greater Roslindale Health Center, Southwest Boston Senior Services, the Roslindale Village Main Street Program (Founding member and President), and the Roslindale Board of Trade (President). For this, he received the Roslindale Village Man of the Year, and the Hermina F. Clark Community Service Award.

Greg’s church community was no different. He was very active in his church and served on the Board of Directors for St. George Antiochian Church and the Board of Trustees for the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America.

Greg loved to travel with family and friends. He loved all sports, but especially the Patriots. Most of all he loved coaching his son and then grandsons’ football teams. He loved watching his grandsons play football and always wanted to be in the stands cheering them on.
