Sitka Loses Prominent Public Servant

Ed Ronco, KCAW – Sitka
Longtime Sitkan Roy Bailey died Saturday at the age of 84. Bailey served on the Sitka School Board, the Sitka Tribe of Alaska Tribal Council, the Historic Preservation Commission, and the board of the Sitka Historical Society. He also fought in World War II – a part of his life he didn’t publicly acknowledge, because for so long, the federal government didn’t acknowledge it either.
