Long time Alaskan, Edmund George Krause, 86, passed away on Aug. 4, 2017, at his residence.
No services are planned at this time.
Ed was born on Jan. 6, 1931, in Irvington, N.J. He moved to Juneau, Alaska, at a very young age and graduated from high school there. He worked for Alaska Department of Fish and Game as a pilebuck and mainly as an ironworker.
He lived in Juneau, Seward, Anchorage, Eagle River, Whittier and Sterling, Alaska. He retired from Local Union 751 Ironworkers in Anchorage.
Ed enjoyed fishing and hunting on the islands in Prince William Sound, getting many moose, goats and caribou. He took fourth place on year in the Seward Salmon Derby. He would also come home with 30-50 rabbits when moose were scarce.
"Ed played city league baseball in Juneau in the 1950s. He joined the Coast Guard and returned to Alaska after his discharge. He started his family with his wife, Joan, eventually having three boys. He also loved reloading and building more powerful faster bullets."
"He always liked baseball and Gonzaga basketball. He bought a 23-foot boat in Seattle, Wash., and ran it up to Whittier by himself and his Welch Terrier dog, Jude. He also ran his boat from Haines to Juneau for his 50th high school reunion. He was a good guy and he will be missed," his family wrote.
He was preceded in death by a son, Ken Krause.
Ed is survived by sons, Cal Krause of Sterling and Curt Krause of Denton, Texas.
Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
