Anchorage and Ninilchik resident Larry E. Oskolkoff, 63, died August 1, 2004, at Alaska Native Medical Center after a brief struggle with cancer. Services and interment were held at Transfiguration of Our Lord Russian Orthodox Church in Ninilchik. Officiating were priest Daniel Andrejuk, Archpriest Marcarius Targonsky and Archpriest Simeon Oskolkoff.

Mr. Oskolkoff was born May 19, 1941, in Ninilchik. A fifth-generation Alaskan, he was a member of Ninilchik Traditional Council and the Cook Inlet Region Inc and Ninilchik Village Native corporations. He served in several administrative and elected positions in these organizations and loved politics, not only Native but state and national as well. He also held administrative positions with Sea-Land Transport and the Alaska Native Services hospital in Bethel. His family wrote: "A lifelong commercial fisherman, Larry loved the sea and fished everything from setnet sites to Bering Sea crabbers. As a young boy, he helped build and operate one of the original Cook Inlet fish traps at Clam Gulch, established during Alaska territorial days. A beloved father, brother and uncle, Larry was a kind and gentle man who liked to keep things simple in his life. He would often exclaim, 'Good enough!' as a way to keep things from getting too complicated. Larry had a keen sense of humor and a great ear for music. He could play guitar and sing like Elvis and once won a talent contest in high school for singing 'Love Me Tender.'"

Survivors include his son, Larry Oskolkoff II of Anchorage; sisters, Loretta Throop, Sharon Culhane and Linda Henrikson, all of Anchorage, and Judy Belcher of Marysville, Washington; brothers, Greg Encelewski of Ninilchik, Grant Encelewski of Kenai, and Eric Encelewski of Anchorage; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Larry M. Oskolkoff, and his mother, Fedora Encelewski. Arrangements were with Evergreen Memorial Chapel.
