To All of Mr. Kojoyian's Family,

I remember your father from being my Biology teacher at Newton South. He was truly the best teacher I ever had. I am turning 65 next month and I still site examples of his words.

Cherish the memories. I am sure you have many. My sincere condolences.

Armen and Arty I am so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a great guy, leader, and motivator. He was a man who would get down on the boards, scream, bang with the best and still love you He pushed me to be my best and exceed my potential. I learned a lot on and off the field, wrestling mat and in life from Aredis and thankful for the opportunity.

My deep condolences to the Kojoyian family; Coach influenced many (including me), and his sayings, including "football is life" and quite a few others still resonate after all these years. RIP to a good man.
