Margaret ( Coltart) HaskellPat Dermenjian's name fills me with affection and gratitude. I will always remember the hospitality and support which he and Nancy gave to me in the 1960s. Pat's soul has moved on to be with our God forever. I send my greetings to his children and my thanks to his wife, Chirstine, for the love and care she gave him.
Luciano and Rosetta Del MonteDearest Pat and Christine From the earliest days of our new walk with the Lord in the mid 70s, you were our wonderful Barnabas, along with Nancy, always full of the Holy Spirit and faith, and always encouraging us to remain true to the Lord. You and your family were like Abraham and Sarah to us, blessing blessing blessing with your kindness and hospitality and generosity through the years. We send our love to you and your family and especially Christine who you shared a great part of your life with and partnered so beautifully with, to advance the gospel of Jesus with every life that had the privilege of knowing you. We love you all, Luciano and Rosetta
Elizabeth SchellenbergerI'm very sorry to the family at this time of losing Mr. Dermenjian. I was saddened to see that Aida and Dale Blough are both gone now. My mother and I knew Aida when she was living in London. We kept in touch for many years.. she was a special lady. We never saw her ,or met her family after she moved to the States. Thinking of all of you at this sad time. Sincerely, Elizabeth

We have so many wonderful and fond memories of our times together. We are also grateful for the special friendship that we shared with Pat and Christine, and were thankful that we were able to visit with them a couple of times in the past 5 years in London. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Much love, Derrick and Rosemary Schwartzel

As others have commented, your Dad, with Nancy, then Christine, influenced many, many people for good. With Love in Christ our Redeemer, Brian & Linda Crawford
Brett Jones & familyThe Scripture tells us that “... the good deeds of some people are obvious. And the good deeds done in secret will someday come to light.” (1 Timothy 5:25) Only heaven and eternity will show how many ways the LORD used His servant to bless and encourage others and bring glory to Himself. Our love and prayers are with you all.. Brett for the Jones family.
Helen Hammond & familylove to Christine and the whole family for years of memories and close friendship.
Gerry & Carol BrockDear Dermenjian family, We send our condolences, but also rejoice with you that Pat is with his Lord, whom he served so faithfully. Not only was Pat a good friend, but a faithful teacher from whom we learned a great deal. When in the carpet business, he helped us purchase exactly what we needed. The Upper Room and Creation book stores were a source of excellent books which had very positive impact on our lives. Pat was a faithful student of the scripture hosting small group studies for decades. Distribution of gospel tracts was another passion he lived and we admired. He was a consistent model in many of his priorities: we are blessed. Our friendship with Pat and Nancy and later Pat and Christine has been a special blessing in our lives. How thankful we are!! Love and prayers, Gerry and Carol Brock
James EaglesPatrick Dermenjian had for many years a heart for missions and helping others. He helped many through our mission - Intercede International. He leaves a lasting legacy. sincerely, James S. Eagles President
