Duyck, Percy Jr. died suddenly and unexpectedly at his home in Nenana on March 9. He was 56 years old. Percy, who was known to his friends and family as “Junior,” was born in Nenana on Dec. 5, 1950, and lived most of his life there as well as in Minto. Percy graduated from Tri-Valley High School in Healy and worked for the U.S. Postal Service in Fairbanks in addition to the Alaska Railroad for a number of years. With his extended family, he hunted and trapped in the family’s traditional areas surrounding Bearpaw. It was in this area that some of his happiest times occurred. He participated in the other family activities that centered on their subsistence lifestyle. He constructed and operated fish wheels with his family, both for food as well as for salmon population surveys under contract with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Percy enjoyed nature and found tranquility just being in the woods or on the water. As a boy, together with his friends, he often camped for several days, eating whatever small game they could shoot or fish that they could catch. They returned home only when they ran out of hunting or fishing supplies. Junior’s attachment to the Bearpaw area began early. As an infant he spent some time in a cardboard box when he was taken out on the trapline trail by his parents, Percy Sr. and Greta Duyck. Later, he traveled in much greater luxury with both snowmachines and riverboats. Percy was a quiet person who was modest and unassuming. He was well liked by everyone. He had many skills, including carpentry, and was a valuable wilderness companion. His boyhood experiences and family travels prepared him for long trips during severe weather during both winter and summer. One of his friends recounted how remarkable it was to be with him as he drove a riverboat down the Bearpaw river at twilight when visibility was severely limited and also to watch him disappear on a snowmachine into the ice fog as he began the long trip from Bearpaw to Nenana on a morning when the temperature was minus 56 degrees. He joked that he preferred the thermometer under the eaves of the cabin because it read some 20 degrees higher than the correct temperature. “Percy Jr. is missed by all who have known and loved him. He will not be forgotten,” the family wrote. He was preceded in death by his wife, Rose Duyck; grandparents John and Hellen Duyck and grandparents Tom Ida Marie; uncles Charles and Johnny Duyck Jr., Merle and Tom Marie; aunt Emma Marie; brothers Donald and Charles Duyck; and sister Patsy May Duyck. He is survived by daughters Sheralyn Titus and Shaylene Duyck; son Ryan Duyck; grandchildren Ethan Titus and Selena Randall; parents Percy Sr. and Greta Duyck; brothers Terry, Robert, Jim, Mitch, Jerry, Jack and Kenneth Duyck; sister Cam Brown; friend Kathy Charlie and numerous nieces and nephews. A funeral will be held 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 14, 2007, at the Nenana Tribal Hall in Nenana. Visitation will be held from 12-2 p.m. Marilyn Duggar, candidate for Holy Order, will officiate. Burial will be at the Nenana Cemetery and a traditional potlatch will follow. Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. May 14, 2007.

He then attended the Virginia Military Institute as a long line of his family had done before him. He graduated from VMI in 1955.

Three interests were his life-long passion: reading history, playing tennis and everything about his alma mater, VMI. He was a proud member of the VMI class of '55, and bled red, white and yellow. Jim was married twice and is survived by his first son, Frazor Titus (Ty) Edmondson, III from his marriage to Carol Gilliland of Dallas and two sons by his second wife, Jan Elliott: James H.

She was one of 14 children. After surviving World War II, she moved to Athens, Greece, with several siblings to find a better life. In 1950, she met and married Nikolas Ellis, who had already immigrated to the United States but had returned to Greece to find his bride.

A resident of Meriden, for over 50 years, she took tremendous pride in building a life for herself and for her new family.

Without a day of schooling in her lifetime, Helen worked for several years as a housekeeper at Meriden Hospital and then worked until her retirement as a production worker at Eyelet Specialty Co. in Wallingford. In 1964, she became an American citizen, later learned to drive a car, and for many years owned and managed an apartment building. She and her husband maintained their own home and raised their family with great pride through the years. Although Helen had no schooling, no one appreciated and valued education and hard work more than her. She made sure that both her children received a college education. She had a wonderful sense of humor and always held herself and her family to high standards. She was a wonderful cook and she made the best Greek cookies in the world. She also loved to knit and embroider, and was a wonderful gardener. Helen loved to be called Yiayia (Greek for grandmother) and there was no greater joy and pride for her than caring for and visiting with her grandsons, and watching them grow. She treasured their every accomplishment and gave them wonderful values to grow up with. Helen is survived by many loving family members and friends, her son, Peter Ellis and his wife, Pat of Meriden; her daughter, Christina and her husband, Ralph King of Colchester; and two grandchildren, Philip and Adam, who all loved her dearly. She was proceeded in death by her loving husband, Nick. She is also survived by nine of her 13 brothers and sisters, all residing in Boston, Greece and Australia -- they are Caliope, Basili, Yioryo, Nikitas, Sotiros, Panayiota, Yioryia, Theodoros, and Metaxia.

She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews in Greece and Australia, as well as nieces, Christine Decas of Wareham, Mass., and Betty Titus of Wellesley, Mass., and nephew, Ted Sarentopoulos of Canton, Mass. and their families. She also leaves behind her dearest friend, Toula Farakas of Meriden. Together they raised their children proudly and rarely ended a day in the last 50 years without a phone call or a visit between them to share the day's events. Helen was an active member of St. George Greek Orthodox Church, New Britain, and belonged to the Daughters of Penelope Society and the Golden Rascals of St. George for many years. In her later years, she was active at the Meriden Senior Center and nearly four years ago, became a resident at Miller Memorial Community in Meriden. She loved living at Miller Community, loved many people there and they loved her as well. To the angels at Miller Memorial who made a loving home for Mom, all of God's blessings, our gratitude and our love.

She knitted her last afghan this past summer and sent it to a mission Christmas bazaar in Cordova, Alaska. Some of her community activities included the Senior Citizens Peace Meal Program. She enjoyed playing cards and sharing lunch with the other members; when she was no longer able to attend at the site, she enjoyed visiting with volunteers who brought her Meals on Wheels.

Fox, Paul A. The Bay Area lost one of its most gifted musicians and a beloved friend of many when Paul passed away Friday, December 10th at the age of 45 in Hayward, CA. Born in San Jose, CA, Paul was raised in Santa Clara and attended both high school and college in the South Bay. Paul developed a natural talent for music at an early age, playing several instruments and making a name for himself as a sought-after singer, guitarist and producer while still in his teens. In the late 70's, Paul started teaching guitar at a number of music stores, and many guitarists in the area still count him as their inspiration. Playing in popular local acts like Rich and Strange and Mystery Date, Paul played almost literally every club in the Bay Area during the 80's. Mystery Date, fronted by Paul on vocals and guitar, opened for big name artists ranging from local favorites like Pablo Cruise and The Tubes to national touring acts like Greg Kihn, Chris Isaac and Richard Marx. During the 90's Paul continued to play in a variety of bands and do session work while expanding his songwriting and production skills. During this time, Paul earned an Emmy nomination for his music for the television series Real Science, and worked with top-flight producers like Ed Goldfarb on projects for a very wide variety of clients, from Christian artists Azimuth to Boys II Men. Beyond his musical talents, Paul was also a talented video engineer, having started working on video projects while in college at De Anza. Paul's technical knowledge and easy manner made him both a trusted employee and friend to many at his employer, Snader and Associates, where Paul worked on video and media integration projects for many of the largest technology companies in Silicon Valley. At the time of his sudden passing, Paul was in the process of doing what he loved best; driving to a show with his band Off The Hook.

Franceschi, Edna,a longtime Russian River area resident known for her years in the resort and restaurant businesses, died May 10. 2004 in Sebastopol of natural causes. She was 94. ``She was a very warm, very caring person,'' said her granddaughter, Lisa Titus Isabeau, of Santa Rosa. ``She was a wonderful grandmother. I grew up living right down the street from her and spending lots of time with her.' Born Edna Mae Shinn on Oct. 17, 1909, in Ignacio, Franceschi moved with her family to Guerneville in 1918. With her father as the Guerneville-Monte Rio depot agent, she was able to ride the train to Santa Rosa for free and attended Santa Rosa High School. Later, after graduating from a business school in San Francisco and working as a secretary in Santa Rosa about a year, she married Herbert Angelo Genelly, her beau from junior high school. For 20 years, they operated the Genelly Resort at Vacation Beach. Genelly was the first of two husbands she would outlive. After Genelly, a fisherman out of Bodega Bay, was lost at sea in 1955, she went to work at an insurance office in Guerneville. Two years later, she married Virgil Franceschi, owner and operator of the Alaska Inn, which ultimately burned to the ground and never was rebuilt. Later, she and her second husband ran the restaurant at Murphy's Ranch for a summer season. Additionally, she ran the Bridge House Cafe at Hexigon House, Guerneville, for two seasons and also worked at Neeley's Guerneville Shop. She and her second husband enjoyed traveling with their trailer, going to Modoc and Mexico. Following his death, she moved in with relatives. ``She was a generous person,'' said her granddaughter, ``always thinking of others first. She had a positive outlook on life.'' In retirement, her favorite activities included cooking, reading, gardening and spending time with family. ``She hadn't worked much since the late '70s and was able to spend the rest of her years cooking and gardening. She liked to find new recipes by going through magazines and recipe books. She was always exploring new dishes to make and serve.'' In the garden, she focused on flowers while her second husband cultivated vegetables. ``She had been a member of the same informal bridge club for 50 years,'' said her granddaughter. ``She outlived most of the other members.'' Francheschi is survived by her son, Herbert Genelly, of Monte Rio, and daughter, Muriel Titus, of Guerneville. She also leaves five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. There will be no services. The Neptune Society was in charge of arrangements. The family suggests memorial donations to the Russian River Health Center, P.O. Box 226, Guerneville 95446, or the Guerneville Fire Ambulance Service, 14100 Armstrong Woods Road, Guerneville 95446. The Press Democrat. May 24, 2004.
