Oakmont’s Fantastic Fathers: Ara K. – Oakmont Northville

For the days leading up to Father’s Day, we’ve asked our residents and families to share stories, pictures, and favorite memories of their dads, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers who live in our communities. We’ll be sharing them here on our website and on our social media channels in a series we’re calling: Oakmont’s Fantastic Fathers!


David and Rick wrote in to wish his father Ara, a resident of Oakmont Northville, a very happy Father’s Day and to share some wonderful memories of an incredible man:

On behalf of David & Rick K., our spouses and our families we would like to wish our Father Ara K. a Happy FatherDay.

We couldn’t ask for a better Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather. He always put his family’s needs ahead of his own. He led by example and raised us to be the same with our children and grandchildren.

Our father was born July 27, 1926 in Detroit Michigan. He served our country in the Army during WW2. After a brief stint working for General Motors he opened a Northlawn Cleaners in the City of Detroit. That is where he worked 70+ hours a week to support our family until selling the business and retiring. In his business he survived the 1967 Detroit riots and survived a serious injury when shot in a robbery of the cleaners.

He was also very mechanically inclined, learning to drive at 11 years old. He owned and restored his own cars at a young age. There is not any task he was afraid to try before Google existed. He did all his own maintenance at his cleaners including plumbing, electrical, welding, installing boilers, conveyors, commercial cleaning machines, washers, and dryers just to name a few.

He was also a very devoted husband to our mother over 60 years putting her needs ahead of his own.

Thank you for the opportunity to say a few words on behalf of our father.

David & Rick K.

Oakmont Northville Partners With Plymouth Community Council on Aging to Sponsor Lunches for For Fireman

In September, Oakmont Northville worked with the Plymouth Community Council on Aging to participate in their wonderful Senior Fest Picnic – an annual event that area seniors look forward to every year.

This year the event happened to fall on the date of September 11th, and Northville Firemen were invited to attend the event to represent the heroes who saved many lives on that tragic day in 2001. As a thank you for all they do for our communities and their selfless sacrifices every day, Oakmont Northville was thrilled to be able to sponsor lunches for all of the firemen in attendance.

Public safety workers and volunteers are such an important part of Oakmont Northville and all of our Oakmont communities, and it was truly an honor to provide them with this special lunch.

Thank you to the Plymouth Community Council on Aging and all who made the wonderful Senior Fest event possible!
