Interment Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge. Published in the Boston Globe from 11/29/2006 - 11/30/2006. The Boston Globe James S. Hekimian, 74; was president of Mugar Group By Stephanie M. Peters, Globe Correspondent | December 2, 2006 James S. Hekimian loved a good challenge. Whether teaching business executives the finer points of managerial accounting, leading Northeastern University's College of Business Administration toward full accreditation, or managing mutual fund portfolios, Mr. Hekimian tackled each task like the math problems that had come so easily to him throughout his life: methodically, with care and keen judgment. "Everybody in the world came to him with their problems because they respected him," said Haig Manuelian of Belmont, who befriended Mr. Hekimian about 50 years ago. "He was a very wise person. . . . He just exuded a quiet respect from everybody he knew." Mr. Hekimian, a numbers-oriented man who built a successful career in academia and later the private sector as the president of the investment management firm Mugar Group, died of complications of Alzheimer's disease Monday at Belmont Manor Nursing Home. He was 74. After graduating from Belmont High School in 1950 he attended Harvard University, where as an undergraduate studying economics he met Louise (Harian), a Simmons College student. "We met, he asked me to go out, and that was it," his wife said. The couple married in 1957. Mr. Hekimian graduated in 1954 and began work on his master's degree in management control systems at Harvard Business School. After obtaining his master's in 1956, he volunteered for the Army and was appointed to the Finance and Accounting Office as a deputy finance and accounting officer, his wife said. He was stationed at the Boston Army base until 1959 and served as a member of the Army Reserve for three years after, she said. Mr. Hekimian returned to Harvard Business School in 1959 and began work on his doctorate. While a doctoral candidate, he was appointed assistant professor of industrial management at the Sloan School of Management at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in July 1952. He was awarded his doctorate in March 1963 and continued to teach at MIT until 1967, when he accepted an appointment as dean of the College of Business Administration at Northeastern University. At both MIT and Northeastern he reveled in his time spent in the classroom teaching business executives managerial accounting, his wife said. "He loved the back and forth, the rapport, between the executive students and himself," she said. "He loved the challenge of dealing with these people. I've had more people say to me 'I never liked accounting, but he made it so interesting.' " During his time at Northeastern Mr. Hekimian served as acting provost from 1975 to 1976 and was on the list of candidates to fill the vacant provost position, Manuelian said. Manuelian and Mr. Hekimian would meet once a week over sundaes at Brigham's Ice Cream and discuss whether he should accept the position or others he was offered at local universities, Manuelian said, but Mr. Hekimian passed, deciding he didn't want to be strapped to an academic career. "He decided instead to be a consultant to the Mugar family and teach part time at MIT," Manuelian said. "He decided he could regulate his life this way. He wasn't going to let his career regulate him." In 1977 he was appointed president of the Mugar Group, a company that dabbled in a variety of ventures including owning and managing shopping centers, malls, office buildings and motels, and real estate development, venture capital investment, and portfolio management securities, his wife said. He remained in that role until 1996. Mr. Hekimian also lent his financial expertise to charitable organizations, namely the Armenian Library and Museum of American and the Armenian Assembly in Washington, D.C. The son of survivors of the Armenian genocide, he was proud of his heritage and endowed a Harvard University classroom in his parents' honor, his family said. In addition to his wife, Mr. Hekimian is survived by a daughter, Gail LeFleche of Alpharetta, Ga.; a son, Karl of Tucson; a sister, Maritza Brown of Belmont; two granddaughters; and a grandson. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. today in St. James Armenian Apostolic Church in Watertown. Burial will be in Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge

At BHS he set a Massachusetts mile record in track and I saw him run the last half of a track backwards one time just to show off he was so far in advance. It was a state meet so he nearly got disqualified. His father was an extremely well known Belmont Police Lieutenant and one of the reasons I got into police work in California. Our mothers were friends. My second car was their ex-family car, a '35 Olds, immune to being stopped in Belmont. Paid $35 for it. Hube and I were friends from about the 2nd grade through Harvard.

Joe Nix posted: Roy was gifted in many ways, a superb woodworker, a dedicated genealogist, a colorful chronicler of his life and times embodying historical, sociological sensitivity and wit. We shared many interests in a frequent exchange of emails since 2000. Roy contributed several oral history anecdotes and photos to my web site's chronicles of Belmont. We also had common interest in the Maritimes where our respective families had orgins." Sister David Mary Duncan, R.S.M. posted: Roy was a quiet, reserved, fun loving, caring, generous man who loved life and family and was concerned for their well being. He also had a great sense of humor-which I might add-he kept right up to the end of his life. He was a good person to be with and a role model for many young people. If anyone had a need, Roy reached out a helping hand. There are many who could attest to his generosity and compassion. Roy was also a very gifted and talented man, generous with his skills and very proud of his accomplishments. Many members of his family and friends have been the recipients of his professional woodworking and carving artistry. (I have on the front of my house as sign he carved with my name) Roy was also a professional skier and proudly served his country in the United States Navy aboard the U.S.S. Missouri during the Korean War. His den at home is a tribute to that era. He was a 32nd Degree Mason and a Shriner. A few days before Roy died he received his Veteran’s Medal from the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts in recognition of 50 years of faithful service as a Master Mason. In the past few years Roy devoted his days to compiling, printing and sharing an extensive family geneology including priceless stories and photos. He was very proud of his Newfoundland roots and during his trips there, fell in love with it and it’s people."
