Chugiak resident Johnathan Mallars, 32, died of heart failure April 12, 2007, at home.
A service will be at 6 p.m. Monday at Bella Vista Pizzeria and Restaurant in Peters Creek, Mile 21.5 Old Glenn Highway.
Johnathan was born March 26, 1975, at Community Hospital in Anchorage, to David and Runae Mallars. He attended Bartlett High School.
Johnathan worked at the Alaska Divers and Underwater Salvage for 10 years as an equipment operator.
His family wrote: "Johnathan had a big heart and a kind soul. He lived for his family and friends, never taking anything for himself, and always giving more than he had to give even when he had nothing. To say that he will be missed is like saying we will miss the air we breathe. We will choose to remember the way in which he lived, rather than the way in which he died. He was a proud father and friend, loyal brother, and caring person; and it is our sincere hope that all who knew Johnathan will keep him in their hearts, and that all who have gone before him will embrace him warmly and keep him safe until we can see him once again."
He is survived by his son, Kyler Mallars; father and mother, David and Runae Mallars; brother, Rick Mallars; sister, Kami Blissard; and grandparents, John and Doris Patton.
