Services for George Malmberg

GEORGE J., RPh, FACA, FACVP, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Wedge-wood Pharmacy, passed away on April 22, 2013 in Wilmington DE, following a brief illness. A resident of Sarasota FL, he was 64. With his loving wife of 39 years, Lucy Malmberg, RPh, FACA, FACVP, he transformed a New Jersey community pharma-cy they purchased in 1981 into one of the largest specialized compounding pharmacies in the United States, with more than 230 employees serving tens of thousands of prescribers and millions of people and animals.
Mr. Malmberg was an icon in the compounding pharmacy profession, a friend and beloved mentor to many who lead and will lead the industry. He was a passionate advocate for the rights of prescribers and pharmacists to develop custom-ized medicines for people and animals. He was generous with his time, money and talent, frequently leading efforts to defend the legal rights of compounding pharmacists and patients who need access to personalized medications. His leadership, wisdom and clarity will be sorely missed at Wedge-wood Pharmacy, on the national stage and on Capitol Hill.
He is survived by his wife, Lucy Malmberg; his sister-in-law, Gloria (Bruce) Bartow and his siblings, Karen (Thom) Cole, Steve, Richard, Paul and Kim Malmberg.

Friends and family may call from 9 to 11 A.M., followed by Celebration of Life at 11 A.M. A reception follows the Service.
