We are saddened to report the passing away of Chahriman Tchakerian on June 21, 2008, after a short illness. He was 82 years old. He is survived by his daughter Ardemis and son Vahan, his grandchildren, Vrej and Ani - all in California - and his brother Vartkes Tchakerian and family in Australia. We extend our sincere condolences to all.
Chahriman Tchakerian was an active and prominent member of our Ethiopian-Armenian community, both in Ethiopia and later in California. He followed closely all the news in the Ethio-Armenian Group website as well as developments in Ethiopia. He was a lifelong member of the Rotary Club. He kept himself busy and young. He enjoyed telephone contacts with his family and friends all over the world. He was most proud of the achievements of his children and grandchildren.
