Henry Hagopian Jr., 79, Woodcliff Lake Resident

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. -- Henry Hagopian Jr., of Woodcliff Lake, died on Thursday,  Oct. 20. He was 79.

Hagopian received a bachelor's in economics from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, followed by a master's of education from Temple University and a master's degree from Teacher's College at Columbia University.

Beginning as a high school business teacher in Philadelphia, he retired from New York City College of Technology, of the City University of New York, in Brooklyn, after 30 years as a marketing professor.

"He was a quiet man with a very strong presence," information from the funeral home noted. "He will be remembered for his love of family, education, caring for his students, gardening and backyard barbecues on summer nights." Hagopian attended the Armenian Church, first in Philadelphia, and then the St. Thomas Armenian Church in Tenafly for 40 years.

He is survived by his son, Henry Hagopian III, and his grandchildren, Elizabeth, Margaret and Katharine Hagopian. He was predeceased by his wife, Grace, and his brother, Norman Hagopian.

Visitation will be from 7-9 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 24, at the William G. Basralian Funeral Home, 559 Kinderkamack Rd., in Oradell. The funeral will be at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, from the funeral home, thence to St. Thomas Armenian Church, in Tenafly for religious services at 11 a.m. Interment will follow in George Washington Memorial Park, in Paramus.
