SARKIS HMAYAK GULGULIAN
On Friday morning, November 18, 2022, our beloved father, Sarkis Hmayak Gulgulian was reunited with his loving wife in heaven, Leone Gulgulian, of 69 years. He passed away at age 91.
Sarkis was born in Beirut, Lebanon on August 15, 1931. Sarkis is survived his three sons, Vahe (Sylva), Hrayr (Stephanie), and Kevork (Gina), his brother, Ara (Elvira), his grandchildren, Vreige, Natalie, Sophia and Sonya, great grandchildren, Phoenix, Vreige Jr., Leo, and preceded in death by three siblings, his sister, Alice (Goekjian), his brother Krikor (Juliet) and Noubar (Zharou).
Sarkis was a hard-working husband and father. He brought his family from Beirut Lebanon in 1974 and began working at Mark Steele as a welder for 27 years before he retired. He was an active member of the Armenian and LDS Church. He always welcomed new guests into his home and kept an open door for family and friends, while making time often to visit them.
Sarkis loved his family more than anything. He cherished the moments he would get to spend with family and friends and was always proud of their accomplishments.
He will continue to be remembered and live in the hearts of his loved ones.
