Juneau resident Leroy E. Clements, known as "Uncle Roy," died Jan. 3, 2010, at Wildflower Court. He was 90.
Born May 14, 1919, in Sweethomes, Ore., he was very young when his family left Oregon. He spent his teenage years up the Taku River on the Canadian side and moved to Elfin Cove in 1947.
He will be remembered for being able to fix almost anything, his humpie fishing in the days when you had to clean them, his guitar playing and singing old songs, his family said.
A service for him and his wife, Augusta, will be held on June 26, 2010, in Elfin Cove. For more information, call Patti Lewis at 907-239-2244
