Denny Amarok

Daniel J. “Denny” Amarok “Alvacchaq”

March 4, 1953 – April 10, 2016

Daniel J. “Denny” Amarok, Alvacchaq was born on March 04, 1953 to Agnes Boone Amarok and Stanley R. Amarok in White Mountain, Alaska. Denny attended the Golovin Day School. He graduated from Mount Edgecumbe High School in 1972.

After graduating from high school, Denny joined the United States Army. He served overseas, and was stationed in Germany. He received National Defense Service Medal and Marksman M16. He was honorably discharged in 1973.

Denny was a life-long resident of Golovin. He enjoyed being out in the country, and passed on doing what he most enjoyed in life, out riding on the snow machine. He loved his dogs Junior and Tabasco; they were two of many. For much of Denny’s adult life he struggled with medical problems and relied on family members to administer medication and bring him to his appointments. He never married, nor did he have any children. We would like to thank our sister Debbie, for bearing much of that burden all these years. We would like to publicly thank those others who stepped in to help during those times, Gay Jacobson, Gary Amarok, Christopher Dexter and Brad Olson. Despite his problems, he was always happy thankful and maintained a positive encouraging attitude. As “poor” as he may have seemed, he was wealthy in love, family and friends.

Denny was preceded in death by his parents Stanley and Agnes Amarok; siblings Evelyn Lincoln and Darrell Amarok, Sr., as well as nephews Darrell Amarok, Jr., David Paniptchuk and niece Denise Oliver Okleasik.

He is survived by his brother Robert “Bobby” Amarok, sisters Carol “Oxie”/Curt Oliver, Maria “Isma” Dexter, Deborah/Toby Anungazuk, AnneMarie/Brian Narog, as well as many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.

The family would like to thank each and every one of you for helping us in our time of need.
