Life Legacy


Lifelong Alaskan Moses Nanalook, 58, died of natural causes March 20, 2008, at Alaska Native Medical Center. A service will be at 2 p.m. today at Turnagain United Methodist Church, with a visitation from 1 to 2 p.m. The Rev. William Nicholson will officiate. Burial will be in Manokotak. Mr. Nanalook was born Feb. 15, 1950, in Anchorage and grew up in Manokotak. He earned an associate's degree in business and was employed for many years with ANMC. He loved halibut and hooligan fishing, sportfishing, ice fishing, clam digging and camping. "Moses had an outgoing personality," his family recalled. "He had many friends and had a catchy laugh and cheery smile for everyone. He liked to tease his numerous nieces and nephews, siblings and 'iluqs' (cross-cousins). He was musically talented and played musical instruments of all kinds, especially the church organ and the mandolin. During his illness, Psalm 23 became meaningful and comforting to Moses." Mr. Nanalook is survived by his mother, Anuska Nanalook of Manokotak; son, Jon Leo Nanalook of Duluth, Minn.; former wife, Pat Nanalook of Duluth; sisters and brothers-in-laws, Sassa and Steve Peterson of Soldotna and Carrie and Bill Paton of Anchorage; brothers and sister-in-law, Pavilla Apaylayak, and Peter and Audrey Nanalook, all of Manokotak; sister, Sarah Catalone of Manokotak; former brother-in-law, Les Catalone of Anchorage; sister and brother-in-law, Rhona and Henry Shavings Jr. of Manokotak; brother and sister-in-law, Ray and Sarah Nanalook of Akiachak; aunt, Mary Lockuk of Togiak; uncle and wife, Gus and Anuska Kusegta of Manokotak; and too many nieces and nephews to list, from Iraq to the Midwest and Alaska. In lieu of flowers, funds for a new Anchorage Moravian Church are welcome. Call 240-8102 for the address.
