H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, and the Religious and Executive Councils mourn the passing of devoted Prelacy servant, former Executive Council member, and prominent community activist Khajag Sarkissian, which occurred on Saturday, December 14, 2019.

Khajag Sarkissian has a rich legacy of service spanning six decades. In particular, he was instrumental in the formation of the Armenian community in San Francisco as a founder and later director of St. Gregory the Illuminator Church Saturday School, one the founders of Krouzian-Zekarian-Vasbouragan School and of the local chapter of the Armenian National Committee of America. In addition, he devoted his life to the Armenian Cause, working on the national, state, and local level to reclaim the rights of the Armenian people, as well as toward the prosperity of Armenia and Artsakh, strengthening of Armenia-Diaspora ties, and preservation of our heritage.

The national funeral service will be held in San Francisco on Monday, December 23rd.

We convey our condolences to his wife Hildy, sons Aram and Sevag and their families, grandchildren, his brother Jirayr and family, extended family and friends.

May his memory remain ever blessed.
