    Our dearly beloved youngest brother and uncle, Calvin Carroll, 77, of the late James and Fannie Carroll, of Fort Yukon, peacefully left us on Christmas Day, 2017.
    Calvin was born May 5, 1940, in Fort Yukon. He was the youngest of the 16 children of James and Fannie Carroll. Calvin joined the Alaska National Guard when he was 18 years old.
    Calvin Coolidge (named after the late president) was a skilled craftsman and fisherman. He built many caskets, crosses and fences for family and friends in Fort Yukon. He was also a skilled tinsmith. He enjoyed making wood stoves and was a lifelong wood cutter. In his earlier days, he was a firefighter for the Bureau of Land Management. Calvin was a busy little man, always helping out his family. He cared for his mom and dad until they passed on. He was the sidekick of his brother, Tommy, and cousin, Dick Strom. He would help them fish during the summers, and hunt and gather wood in the fall and winter. He preferred to stay at the fish camp in the summers, and come fall time, he would go across the Yukon River to his campsite and stay there until freeze-up.
    Calvin is preceded in death by his parents, James and Fannie Carroll; brothers James Ward Sr.; Clifton I, Clifton II, Lawrence, Clarence, Joseph, Harry, Thomas and Albert Carroll; and sisters Emma, Barbara, Mabel Carroll and Ann Moran.
    Calvin is survived by his brother, Richard Carroll; sisters Delores Sloan and Fannie Booth; brother/cousin Richard Strom Sr.; numerous nieces and nephews throughout Alaska and the Lower 48, and many friends in Fort Yukon.
    The Carroll family of Fort Yukon would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to the staff at Eagle Wings Assisted Living Center, and Pam and Bobbie at the Public Advocacy Office in Fairbanks.
    Funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Jan. 3 at the St. Stephens's Episcopal Church in Fort Yukon. Burial will be at the Hudson's Bay Cemetery. Potluck and celebration of life of uncle Cal will follow at the Tribal Hall.
