Age:

Dennis Karnig Hamamjian, age 67, passed away on Tuesday, November 8, 2016 at his home in Fresno, CA. Born to Karnig and Eleanor Hamamjian on May 24, 1949, Dennis spent nearly his entire life living in Fresno.

Dennis graduated from Fresno High School in 1967, and attended California State University, Fresno, where he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business in 1973. Dennis volunteered into the Army National Guard while he attended college and served as a helicopter technician.

Dennis married the love of his life, Evelyn, in 1979. They fell in love instantly and never left each other's side.

Dennis was a produce salesman for more than 35 years and opened his own business, DK Fresh, in 2005. Dennis was known as the life of the party and his presence filled up the room wherever he went. His quick wit and famous one-liners often had him compared to the likes of Rodney Dangerfield. Dennis' s unique way with people made him unforgettable to everyone he met.

Dennis was an active member at San Joaquin Country Club from 1978 until the day he passed. He enjoyed playing golf, socializing with friends, playing the horses, shooting, and supporting his favorite sports teams, the Golden State Warriors, San Francisco Giants, San Francisco 49ers, and Fresno State Bulldogs. Dennis was a true sportsman.

Dennis is survived by Evelyn, his wife of 37 glorious years; daughter, Jennifer Hovannisian and her husband Bryce; son, Charles Hamamjian and his wife Julie; his two grandchildren, Benjamin and Alice Hovannisian; along with several cousins, nieces, nephews, and godchildren.
