Serge Krikorian, 85, of Wyckoff, passed away on March 6, 2018. Serge was born on November 6, 1932 to the late Krikor and Acabi Krikorian. Along with his sister Anahid, the family lived in Sunnyside, Queens and then moved to Riverdale in the Bronx. Serge graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx and then enlisted in the Navy, proudly serving on the USS Purdy during the Korean War before being honorably discharged in 1956. He attended N.Y.U. earning his Bachelor of Arts in Business. He started his career at Lehman Brothers before moving over to Hekemian and Co. in Hackensack where he headed the Insurance Department for over 50 years. He was still proudly working every day right up until his recent health issues. He truly loved interacting with his fellow employees and clients and always looked forward to his lunch dates with colleagues and friends. Serge was passionate about giving back and had a special place in his heart for the young people in the local community. He served as part of numerous organizations. Notably he was a longtime member and former President of the Hackensack Rotary. He also served as Commissioner of the Armenian Churches Sports Association and led the Armenian Presbyterian Church’s basketball program for many years. He could always be found on Sunday afternoons keeping the scorebook at the league’s basketball games. His greatest achievement was his family. He met his wife Ann and married on October 6, 1963, first living in Hackensack before settling in Wyckoff and raising their four children, Elizabeth, Gregory, Aimee and Douglas. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He cherished his time with family in Wyckoff and at the family home on the Jersey Shore. He loved the Yankees and Rangers and one of his greatest memories was being at Game 7 of the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals to see his Rangers finally raise the Cup! He is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Ann Krikorian. Devoted father to Elizabeth Aynilian and her husband Nicholas of Ridgewood, Gregory Krikorian and his wife Tamara of Short Hills, Aimee Kientopp and her husband Bob of Wyckoff, and Douglas Krikorian and his wife Yana of Mahwah. Grandfather to 10 beautiful grandchildren: Nicholas Jr., Stephanie, Thomas, Paige, Caroline, Brandon, Sophia, Kayla, Kyle and Damian. Dear Brother of Anahid Krikorian of Lakewood. Serge truly cherished the friendships he had with so many that touched his life. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at the Armenian Presbyterian Church, 140 Forest Avenue, Paramus, NJ, from 2-4PM and 7-9PM with a religious service at 8:30PM. Funeral services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Armenian Presbyterian Church or the Hackensack Rotary, PO Box 471, Hackensack, NJ 07601.
