During 30 years of fishing adventures
to Angoon, there were always new insights on our humanity and humor abounded when in the presence of Captain
Floyd. May the peace that only God can provide, sustain and comfort you in this season of Floyd's passing.

Though I only spent a couple of days fishing with Floyd, he filled my soul with good stories and great laughter. The fishing was not great, but Floyd sure was. May they always be taking your bait Floyd, you will be missed.
Floyd will certainly be missed, but his legacy is real. Classy, outspoken, but always respectful with a great sense of humor. Any words out his mouth were planned and thought out. Wisdom and insight were trademarks. My prayers and thoughts to the family. This was a life well lived.
My condolences to Lena and family.
Floyd was a true gentleman, I shall always cherish the time I spent with him.
Our deepest sympathies to you and your family from your family in Albuquerque, NM. We last saw Floyd in Carrizozo. You will be missed.
You are not alone during this time of sorrow. God knows the pain you feel and will help you through it. May you and your family experience a supernatural peace and comfort as only God can give. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
As he walks into the forest to greet his Mother and Father , his grandparents are wanting their turn to welcome him home. God Speed my Brother, God speed...
I first met Floyd in the mid-1990s when I began working at Greens Creek. I found him to be a wise counselor; a champion for his people and community; and a welcoming friend. He was never without a story to tell and a laugh to share. His many lessons will guide me for a long time to come.
My condolences to his family and all of Angoon for their loss. He will be missed.
Lena...my thoughts and prayers are with you, my friend.

our deespest condolences to the family of floyd Kookesh. our thoughts and prayer are with you during this time of loss. the lord be with you and the lord keep you safe from further harm. for this i pray to the lord, lord hear my prayer, amen.
What a beautiful telling of his life and his legacy. My prayers go out to his family, especially Lena, his daughters, son and Grandchildren.
A great loss to not only the Kookesh family but, the Village of Angoon as well. I had the pleasure and honor of meeting Floyd 14 years ago, he became a friend and mentor of mine. I admire his wisdom, love of family, friends, and the village he so dearly loved. Floyd taught me many things but most of all his belief in a subsistence life which he was so passionate about.
Thank you Floyd for all the great memories you will be sorely missed I will especially miss those June days trolling for those elusive king salmon in Angoon with my friend.
Give Rest O Lord
To thy servant
