Gary Terzian

September 12, 1942 ~ January 21, 2017 (age 74)

Garbis Terzian entered into eternal rest on Saturday, January 21, 2017. He is survived by his beloved, wife, Arshalous, children Hagop and Elie, stepchildren, Nora Kzirian and Antranig Keomurjian, his siblings, nieces and nephews; and many friends who were part of his extended family.

Born in Aleppo, Syria in 1942, Garbis, by trade was a painter; however, he was best known for his comedic work as the lovable fez-wearing Hoja, a character he named after his grandfather. His passion was to make people laugh and he did so for his entire life.

May he rest in peace. Աստուած Հոգին Լուսաւորէ
