Former Juneau resident Frederick Larry St. Clair, 77, died May 29, 2005, in Apache Junction, Ariz. He was born to Frederick L. and Ruth St. Clair on Sept. 28, 1927, in Bridgeport, Wash.
He graduated from high school in Pateros, Wash., and from Eastern Washington College of Education in Cheney, Wash. He was a member of the military police in the Korean War.
He was a medical laboratory technologist for 25 years. He lived in Bridgeport, Brewster and Pateros, Wash., for many years before moving to Juneau. He retired in 1986 from Juneau, and moved to Apache Junction.
He enjoyed the desert, finding rocks and other desert treasures, his family said. He created a large rock mailbox, and also what he called his "flower tower" made in layers lined with rock.
He is survived by his wife, Joyce; his four children, Fred St. Clair, Lori Durall, Brian St. Clair and Vicki Garnick; his mother, Ruth St. Clair; his sisters, Abbie Bradley and Cathi Kirk; his two nephews, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
A memorial service was held June 17, 2005, at the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Apache Junction. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to his church's building program, school, prison ministries, evangelism, or the charity of your choice.
