Anchorage resident Frank Arthur Notter Jr. died March 15, 2010, in Arizona after a short battle with colon cancer. He was 50.
A celebration of his life will be at 2 p.m. April 17 at Gloria Dei Church, 8427 Jewel Lake Road. A reception will follow the service.
Mr. Notter was born Sept. 7, 1959, in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, in the U.S. Army hospital. His family lived for a short time in Washington, then moved to Alaska in 1967. They settled on the Kenai Peninsula in the Soldotna area, where Mr. Notter loved to fish, hunt and camp.
He fell in love with the wonders and adventures of the Caribou Hills, where he made many lifelong friends and hunting buddies. He always shared with his family his love of hunting and the adventures and exciting details of each experience with such passion. He also shared this passion for adventure, making sure everyone around him was having a good time, whether at the family cabins, snowmaching, camping and fishing, or just relaxing around a campfire with family and friends. His stories will be greatly missed by so many.
He is survived by his wife, Renay Mitchell-Turner-Notter; son and daughter-in-law, Mickey and Amanda, and granddaughter, Brodie of North Carolina; son, Brian Turner of Anchorage; daughter, Rachelle Turner of Wasilla; mother and stepfather, Peggy and Del Wilton of Soldotna; birth father, Frank Notter Sr. (Vonda) of Arizona; brothers, George Notter (Susan) of Soldotna, Jack Notter of Kansas, and Ted and Tricia Notter of Sterling; stepsisters, Laura Orcutt, Gayle Mattax and Tammy Duncan, all of Washington; two aunts, Leona Brown and Francis Swearingen of Soldotna; the loving Rafter and Lorense family, the Meeks family, Mary and Jesse Meeks; and brother-in-law, Jerry Mitchell of Missouri; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
