Jack S. Chalekian Obituary
December 8, 1923 - June 16, 2017 Jack S. Chalekian, 93, of Redondo Beach entered into his eternal rest on June 16, 2017. He was the beloved husband of 61 years to Armine (Amy) Chalekian, cherished father of Sylvia Proskine and Greg Chalekian; and caring and loving grandfather of Natalie Proskine and Aimee-Vana Proskine. He is survived by many nieces, nephews and extended family. Born in Cairo, Egypt, Jack studied electrical engineering at Purdue University. Following his arrival in California with his family in 1962, he became a senior technical writer. Upon his retirement in 1987, Jack fulfilled his long-awaited dream of visiting the Holy Land. He was actively involved for many years with St. James Armenian Apostolic Church in Los Angeles, serving on its parish council and in the parish's Armenian school leadership, as well as teaching Sunday School there. Jack's retirement years also included extensive local charity work. A memorial service will be held on Monday, June 26 at 11am at St. James Armenian Apostolic Church, 4950 West Slauson Avenue, Los Angeles, 90056. A reception will immediately follow at Gogian Hall on the church grounds. The family is requesting that memorial donations be made to St. James Armenian Apostolic Church.
