Former Juneau resident Richard Jack Penrod, 74, of Anacortes, Wash., died June 19, 2003, at his home.
He was born April 21, 1929, in Provo, Utah, to Max and Anne (Boyce) Penrod. He graduated from Eastern New Mexico University with a bachelor's degree in business administration before pursuing a career in public school accounting in Alaska.
After his retirement, he and his wife, Loretta, made their home in Salem, Ore. Water and mountains drew them to Anacortes, where they remained until his death.
According to his family, "Jack was known locally for his totem carvings, his Northwest Coast and Eskimo masks, and his delight in cutting and polishing stones for his friends."
He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Loretta; a sister, Jean Kirkham of Kaiser, Ore.; and a nephew, Michael McCormick of Portland, Ore.
Remembrances may be made to a favorite charitable organization. A graveside urn committal will take place at Grand View Cemetery with a private gathering of the family. Arrangements are in the care of Evans Funeral Chapel in Anacortes, Wash.
