    Gregory-BoivinGregory (Greg) Paul Boivin ('89 DVM) - August 11, 2017

    Gregory (Greg) Paul Boivin 55, lost his courageous fight to pancreatic cancer on Friday, August 11, 2017. 

    Greg was born July 31, 1962 to Daniel and Linda Boivin in Seattle, Washington. Greg never lost his love for the State of Washington and was a long-time season football ticket holder for University of Washington Huskies. Greg’s greatest love were his children. He thoroughly enjoyed hiking, music, traveling and attending Reds baseball, U-Dub and Mizzou football games. In 2007 Greg and a few close friends hiked the John Muir trail lasting 20 days and was one of Greg’s fondest hiking memories. 

    Greg leaves behind his two children, Jordan and Kayla and his Fiancée Pam Williams who were the love of his life. Greg and Pam often referred to their family as the Brady Bunch consisting of Jordan, Kayla, Keaton, Ginny and Sam. Greg is survived by his father Dan Boivin (Treva) and his two loving and supportive sisters, Donna Ditore (Joe) and Diane Donovan and his four favorite nieces and nephews, Michelle Ditore, Anthony Ditore, Megan Ditore and Sean Donovan.

    He was preceded in death by his mother Linda Boivin in 2011.

    Greg graduated from University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology in 1984 and Washington State University with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1989. Greg did his residency at University of Missouri from 1989-1992 and moved to Cincinnati in 1992 working for University of Cincinnati until 2008 as Director of the Division of Comparative Pathology. In 2008 Greg accepted his current position at Wright State University as Professor for Department of Pathology, Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Director of Laboratory Animal Resources. Since 1992 Greg worked part time for Cincinnati VA as Veterinary Medical Officer. 

    Greg’s research was focused on colon cancer and tendon repair. He was also a strong advocate for the humane care and use of animals used in research to improve human and animal health. Greg was known as an outstanding comparative pathologist, veterinary scientist and collaborator with almost 150 scientific publications. He was proud that his publications have reached every major scientific journal. 
    Greg was a member of many professional organizations relating to his industry and in lieu of flowers please send memorial contributions to American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine or American Association for Laboratory Animal Science
