Obituary for Dr. Zaven Oskanian

At the age of 80, Zaven Oskanian passed away peacefully Sunday morning with his family by his side. Beloved husband of Lena Oskanian. Dear father of Tanya (Eric McCasline) Oskanian and b’èdrõs Oskanian, and grandfather of Ella and William Oskanian McCasline, brother to Vahe and Hovannes Oskanian.

Zaven and Lena were married for 48 years. In the many calls and visits the family has received, a common theme has been that Zaven was a kind, gentle intelligent teacher of sorts with a wry sense of humor whose number one love was his family.

Zaven was a uniquely proud Armenian and active in his church community at St. John's Armenian Church, a surgeon and athlete.

Zaven met and married his future wife within one month during a visit in Beirut. They came to Detroit in 1971 and raised their family here.

Visitation Wednesday, February 27, from 6pm - 8pm with a 7:00 p.m. Dan Gark (Prayer Service) at St. John’s Armenian Church 22001 Northwestern Highway, Southfield.

The funeral service will be Thursday, February 28th at 11:00 a.m. Friends can start arriving at Church at 10:45 a.m.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations are to St. John Armenian Church.
