Sid James Huntington Obituary
Our beloved father, son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, Sid James Huntington, 30, was born in Fairbanks on March 22, 1987. Sid was called home to heaven in Koyukuk on Nov. 20, 2017. Sid grew up in Koyukuk and Galena, but Koyukuk was always home and he loved nothing more than being in Koyukuk, spending time with his late grandma Marion. Sid later lived in Fairbanks.
Sid attended school in Koyukuk, Galena, the Howard Luke Alternative School in Fairbanks, and went on to complete his G.E.D. with National Adult Education Honors. Sid excelled in math, which led him apply to the Local 375 Plumber and Pipefitters Union Apprenticeship Program. Sid got a call to an interview, suited up in his best clothing and got invited to join the program. Sid was a fast learner and was always open and willing to further his education by taking various trainings.
Sid loved to go hunting and camping, and being out on the Koyukuk River with family and friends. Sid's late grandmother, Marion, taught them the traditional subsistence lifestyle and made sure to bring them up the Koyukuk River every year. Sid loved cooking for family and friends and was well known for his fry bread and shrimp scampi, recipes he kept a secret and will be missed at the dinners. Sid was a talented artist and could spend hours drawing. His art pieces will be forever cherished. Sid was very creative and designed his own arrow quiver and knife case.
Sid was a faithful Raiders fan and enjoyed watching the Oakland Raiders team, but he was a true Koyukuk Raider at heart.
Sid was a kind and loving person and gave the true meaning to the phrase, "Give you the shirt off his back." Often times, he would give his nice clothes to his friends less fortunate than him. He would give without ever expecting anything in return.
More than anything in life, Sid loved his family and friends, working hard to provide for them, always keeping the conversation going and teasing. When Sid became a father to Sophia, nothing brought him more love and joy. Sid's eyes would light up when he talked about his daughter and you can instantly see the pride that he had in being her dad.
Sid was greeted in heaven by his father, Glen J. Kriska; grandmother, Marion E. Huntington; brother, Stewart L. Huntington; brother-in-law, John Kavairlook; cousin, Jonny H. Huntington; and numerous other relatives.
He is survived by his daughter, Sophia Nek'eedoye Huntington; baby momma, Star Madros; mother, LaVern Huntington; his sisters, Shalene Huntington Kavairlook, Patricia Kriska, Starlene Kriska, and Katelyn Galbraith; grandparents, Peter and Winifred Demoski; aunties, Dina Lara (Hank), Josephine Huntington, Judy Carlo (Kenny), Joann Malamute, Marilyn Roberts, LaVern Demoski, Mary Ann McCarty, Joyce Huntington, Edith Hildebrand (Darryl), Madeline Riley (Rocky), Corina Kriska; and uncles, Wayne Huntington (Violet), Orville Huntington, Pete Demoski (Euphrasia), Tommy Kriska, Dale Kriska, Hugh Kriska Jr. and Henry Beatus (Sophie).
