Arnold Davis Seetot

March 11, 1959- March 6, 2016

Arnold Davis Koonuk Seetot was born to the late Elmer Sr. and Molly Seetot on March 11, 1959 in Nome, Alaska.

He was raised in Brevig Mission until his passing on March 6, 2016.  Arnold attended Brevig Mission Elementary School until the eighth grade.  Then he attended Shishmaref High School, where he graduated in 1979.

On September 17, 1992, Arnold married his sweetheart Helen Olanna.  Together they raised their two sons Roger and Johnson.

In 1985, Arnold started working as the Water Plant Operator for the City of Brevig Mission until his sickness overtook his body.

Arnold lived a subsistence lifestyle.  He loved spending time outside.  He loved to hunt for ducks, walrus, seals and moose.  He also loved to fish and pick berries.  Every chance he got, he would be outdoors picking berries.  While his sons were growing up, he taught them how to hunt, fish, and gather berries.

Arnold’s pride and joy was being with his two grandsons Dwight and Dwayne.  After work, he enjoyed taking care of them and entertaining them.

Arnold was a gentle, kind, caring, loving and a very quiet person. He will be greatly missed by family and friends, near and far.

Arnold is survived by his wife Helen; son Johnson (Elsie), grandsons Dwight and Dwayne; brothers Elmer, Jr. (Johnee); Walter (Delores); Delbert (Frieda); sisters Rita (Henry); Edna (Bobby); Ellen (Arthur); and Pauline (Leonard).  Sister-in-laws Lenora, Bertha (Leonard), Joanne, Sarah (Ronald); brothers-in-law Jacob (Jane); Floyd (Helena); Elton; and Michael (Bessie); aunt Agnes Ivanoff; uncle Dan Omedelina; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
