Obituary Condolences

Wilfred "Tod" Charles Kozevnikoff was selected by our Heavenly Father to enter his kingdom on May 23, 2009, after a seven-year battle with cancer.

Tod was born to Elizabeth Erhart Kozevnikoff and Ambrose Kozevnikoff on Jan. 7, 1937, at the Tanana Hospital. He was raised by his grandparents, Charlie and Nettie Erhart. At the age of 14, he left home to begin working in Fairbanks at the Northern Commercial Co., F.E. Mining Co. and the Alaska Railroad. He then returned to Tanana and started working at the Tanana Hospital, from which he retired in 1983. Tod then started working on the North Slope oil rigs for Northern Oilfields, Doyon Drilling and ARCO. Prior to retirement for the third time, he worked for Tanana Chiefs Conference retiring as a remote maintenance operator in March 2008.

His passion was spending his summers at his fish camp on the Yukon River, jamming with his friends at the Athabascan Fiddle Festival and spending time with his grandchildren, especially the joy of his life, his great-grandson, Evan Titan.

Tod leaves behind his wife of 44 years, Eileen; his children and their spouses, Cheryl (Cliff) Lewis, Tod Kozevnikoff, Rowe Kozevnikoff, Aaron Kozevnikoff Sr., and Kim Wiehl and Greg Evans; sister, Audrey (Harry) Littlefield; brothers, Terry (Sharon) Sunnyboy, Robert Sunnyboy and Arnie Sunnyboy; aunt, Virginia Kalland; uncle, Lester Erhart; niece, Tina (Gerry) Sullentrop; grandchildren, Bryon, Tatiana, Kyle, Gary, Lisa Kay, Megan, Nathan, Kierra, Susie, Robin, Levi, Aaron Jr., Billy Joe, Frances, Katelyn, Jessica, Bear and Hailey; and great-grandchildren, Evan Titan, Dakota, Blaze, Trevon, Hayden and Cheyanne.

Tod joins his parents; his grandparents; his sister, Marie Kincaid; aunt, Violet Erhart; and uncle, Carl Erhart.

The family would like to thank Dr. Carroll and his staff and the staff of 2 South at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital for his care during his last days. Thanks also to all those friends and relatives who offered prayers, donations and assistance to the family during this time.
