03/06/20 - Rep. Carbajal posted the following to Facebook: "Very saddened to hear about Katcho’s passing. A good man and a pillar in our community, he believed in the common good and worked to transcend partisanship. Katcho taught us to always strive for what's best for our communities, and he delivered results. He was a dedicated advocate for the recognition of the Armenian genocide in the state legislature, and he prompted me to take federal action to do the same. His passion and commitment were clear to all lucky enough to know him. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family." View the Facebook post here.
