We have lost the pillar and history of our newspaper, the editor of our Armenian section, our everything, Sarkis Seropyan, this evening, on 28 March 2015, Saturday. We bow respectfully before the memory of Sarkis Seropyan, who has been a symbol synonymous with Agos since its foundation, and offer our condolences to his family and all loved ones.
Seropyan's funeral will be held at 13:00 tomorrow (31 March) at the Surp Vartanants Church in Feriköy. Burial will follow at the Şişli Armenian Cemetery.
Born in 1935, Sarkis Seropyan began working after he graduated from secondary school, and at the same time wrote articles in Armenian for various magazines and newspapers. Upon Hrant Dink's offer, he became a member of the team that, in 1996, founded the Agos newspaper, and was since the editor of the Armenian section of the newspaper. Seropyan is survived by his wife and two children.
