Mohamed Nahas, of Quincy, died peacefully at home on the evening of February 7, 2023 surrounded by the love, comfort and care of his devoted family. He was 74.
Born and raised in Beirut, Lebanon, he was the son of the late Mounir & Najah Nahas. He was thrust into adulthood at an early age upon the passing of his own father; and at 12 years of age became the patriarch of his family.
Mohamed immigrated to the United States in 1972, where he spent three years in California before finally settling in Quincy. It was here that he met the love of his life -and future bride- Marcia (Moore).
A resourceful entrepreneur, Mohamed worked hard and established his own business, Nahas Leather, on Charles St in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood, a business he operated from 1975 until his retirement in 2013.
