Prelate Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian–along with the Western Prelacy Religious and Executive Councils extended their sorrow at the loss of the intellectual–writer–literary critic–and national servant Puzant Granian who passed away on the morning of Saturday–October 30.
Granian–who was born in Cilicia in 1912–lived in Alexandria–Egypt before moving to Los Angeles. His dedication to his nation and people spans his service to the Armenian community of Egypt to his commitment to the Western Prelacy.
Puzant Granian–who assumed the chairmanship of the first Western Prelacy Executive Council–continued his selfless service for decades–not only to the Western Prelacy–but also affiliate groups–and partook in many General Assemblies of the Armenian Catholicosate of Cilicia. He leaves behind a rich literary legacy.
A national funeral will take place on Tuesday–November 9–11AM–at the Rose Hills Cemetery’s Memorial Chapel in Whittier.
