Celebrating Souren Agemian

November 30, 2020

Funeral Announcements

Memorial this week will be a private family event due to covid restrictions of only 10 people.

Burial of the ashes will be 40 days after passing ( Thursday January 7th, 2021 ), held at York Cemetery section 3, and will be open to the public, pending covid restrictions on that date.

Celebration of Souren’s life will be on the one year anniversary of his passing ( Saturday, November 27th, 2021 ). Details will be available in due course.

It is with great difficulty that we announce the passing of our devoted AGBU benefactor, Souren Agemian on November 27th, 2020.

Larger than life, vibrant, generous, and bright, Souren was always supportive of AGBU’s Mission, initiatives and various programs, including Humanitarian aid in Armenia. Over the years, his annual donations supported numerous activities organized by our Toronto Chapter, energizing our community.

An accomplished & humble businessman, known for his great generosity and humour, shared his successes with his family, friends and community with his love for entertainment & knowledge, without any expectations.

Our deepest & most sincere condolences to Souren’s family and friends. He will be truly missed by everyone he has touched.


“It is simply in the nature of Armenian to study, to learn, to question, to speculate, to discover, to invent, to revise, to restore, to preserve, to make, and to give.”

― William Saroyan
