Community Activist, Contributor, Dies
CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. — Nubar M. (Niles) Dorian, father, grandfather, husband, uncle, brother, friend, died on February 28.
For him, God and family were above all else. He was the family patriarch. An immigrant himself, he helped his brothers and sister come to the US with their families. He watched them settle and prosper, and stayed connected to them all, encouraging them to be successful and happy.
He loved his Armenian homeland and his church, always working on behalf of the Armenian-American community and Armenians throughout the diaspora. His community involvements are too many to recall, positively impacting organizations such as the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU), Armenian Church Youth Organization of America (ACYOA), Knights of Vartan, Holy Cross Armenian Church and others. He was a respected contributing columnist and commentator on all things Armenian whose collected works of 30 years were published in his book, Harvests of the Heart. He regulary contributed to the Armenian Mirror-Spectator.
He always hoped for unity among all Armenians.
