Juneau resident Andres Delfin Julaton died July 10, 2001, in Juneau.
He was born Feb. 4, 1911, in the Philippines. Julaton immigrated to the United States in 1930, spending time in the contiguous Untied States and Southeast Alaska. He moved to Juneau in 1942 and became a chef at the Baranof Hotel, Percy's and later at the City Cafe.
Julaton was one of the three remaining original Filipino members of the Filipino community. Early in his life, he earned the nickname of "Full Speed" from his friends because of his life long love for dancing.
He is survived by his son Daniel Julaton; daughters Jeanette Huberth and Sally Healey; sons-in-law Pete Huberth and Tom Healey; grandchildren Marsha and Daniel Julaton, Byron and Michael Makeshine, and Derek Harris; 10 great-grandchildren; and sisters, brothers and numerous nieces and nephews in the Philippines.
A celebration of Julaton's life will be held at the Filipino Community from 4 to 8 p.m. on July 13. All of his friends and his family's friends are invited. The immediate family will have a private ceremony later. The family requests that donations be made to Southeast Senior Services, C.C.S Wing, 496 6th St., Juneau, AK 99801, or Bartlett Regional Hospital Foundation, 3260 Hospital Drive, Juneau, AK 99801.
