Charles Gregory Armen, unexpectedly transitioned from this life in mid-November at age 69, the big brother and oldest of five children born to Florence Delse and Charles Armen (Hoshafian), and dear nephew to Vahe Hoshafian, all deceased. Beloved father of Gregory Evans Armen, grandfather of Nathanial Ballard, beloved brother of Miriam Schuman, Stephen Armen, (wife Eleanor), Paul Armen, (wife Andy), and Chris Armen, uncle to Grace McKenzie, Justine, Jalesa and Julian Armen, Carly and Nick Armen, and; Mark, Sean, Joe and Kelsey Armen. He was a dear friend, care taker and considered family, to Sylvia and Jack Heller, (deceased), of Beachwood, Ohio.
From very early-on in life, Charles demonstrated traits of his genius; gifted and talented at nearly everything into which he poured his heart and mind. He was a star quarterback at Cathedral Latin high school, a brilliant and accomplished actor—awarded a scholarship at the Lee Strasberg Theater & Film Institute in NYC.
Charles was an avid, life-long learner who read the New York Times from cover-to-cover, every Sunday. He had a quality about him that attracted many friends with whom he had inspiring and engaging conversations; there was hardly a worthy topic about which he couldn’t speak intelligently and with great depth.
Charles was a generous, compassionate and kind person, having donated to important causes connected with the environment. He cared deeply about the planet, animals and humans. A volunteer at the Kent State Food Coop and the library at Park Synagogue in Beachwood. He was a connoisseur of Asian and other food and a talented and budding artist.
He will be missed by family and an expansive community of friends.
A memorial service will follow in January. For more information, please email: 4Charlesarmen@gmail.com
