Gregory Nicholas Tsialas, 86, of East Haven, passed on July 25 after a long and valiant battle with Alzheimer’s. He was born June 28, 1934, in Wakefield, Massachusetts. He was the beloved husband of Elaine P. (Georgaklis) Tsialas and the oldest son of six children born to the late Nicholas and Christine (Buchika) Tsialas of Brookline, Massachusetts.
He was the loving father of Crystal Tsialas-Mauch, Nicholas Gregory Tsialas, and Deborah Tsialas-Berner, all of East Haven. He was the adored grandfather of Erica Tsialas; Gregory Nicholas Tsialas (wife, Nina) of East Haven; Constance Sulpasso of Plainfield, Vermont; Alexander Sulpasso (wife, Karla Lindquist) of Guilford; and Heather Berner and Tristan Berner of East Haven. He was the cherished great-grandfather of Alyssa Aceto; Brendan, Peyton, and Isabella Urbano, all of East Haven; Brita and Gunnar Sulpasso of Guilford; and Emory Gillespie of Plainfield, Vermont. He is also survived by his sisters Evangeline (husband, Nicholas) Phillips and Stella Primpas, both of Massachusetts; sister in law Christine S. Tsialas of Connecticut; and many nieces and nephews near and far.
Greg graduated from Brookline High School in 1952. He studied at the New England College of Pharmacy, graduating in 1956. Following in his father’s footsteps, he was a registered pharmacist until his retirement in 2013. He proudly served his country for seven years in the Massachusetts Army National Guard at Fort Devins. He enjoyed spending time with his family, nature, and the outdoors, and was a well-respected member of his community. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge, Hesperia, Boston, Massachusetts, in keeping with family tradition and he was immensely proud of his Greek heritage.
He was predeceased by his brothers Arthur (infant) and James Tsialas; sister Aspacia (husband, Peter) Diamond; and his brother-in-law George Primpas.
