Alan “Alkiviades” Voulgaris, 85, of Nashua, NH passed away on August 3, 2019. Alan was born on June 11, 1934 in Manchester, NH to parents Vaios and Despina (Pistolas) Voulgaris.
Alan graduated from Manchester Central High School, class of 1952. He continued his education at Dartmouth College where he graduated with a B.A. in History in 1956 and an MBA from the Tuck School of Business in 1957. Alan served as an officer in the United States Navy and was honorably discharged with the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
Alan enjoyed a long and successful career in banking in Boston and New Hampshire. For many years he served as Senior Vice President of Commercial Lending at the Indian Head Bank. In 1986, Alan left banking and founded the venture capital fund, Kearsarge Ventures, where he was the Managing Partner. Alan took great pride in the fund’s mission of supporting NH-based start-up businesses.
Alan was well known for his engaging conversation, positive demeanor and generosity. He was an avid gardener, happily spending many hours in his yard designing and cultivating an English garden that dazzled in all seasons. Alan enjoyed the Boston Symphony, the Boston Red Sox and trips to the NH seacoast. He was deeply knowledgeable of the craft and art of oriental rugs, which he loved. He was also a voracious reader of mysteries, history and poetry, often reciting lines from one of his favorite poets, CP Cavafy, in Greek.
Alan’s greatest pleasure was spending time with his family. He is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Rita (Damadian) Voulgaris and his two children: daughter Alexis Voulgaris and her husband Emmin Shung, and son William Voulgaris and his wife Emily Aiken; and three grandchildren: Ajax Shung, Artemis Shung, and Elena Voulgaris. He is also survived by his sister Electra Joaquin, his brother Theodore Voulgaris, his nieces Nancy Newpher and Barbara Voulgaris, and his nephew Mark Voulgaris. He was predeceased by his infant daughter, Alexandra Nartig Voulgaris.
