Percy was born and raised in Shishmaref, and attended the University of Alaska where he studied Business Administration. In 1980, he began working as assistant manager of Nayokpuk General Store and later became the owner and general manager. He formerly served as the Mayor of Shishmaref and as past president of the Shishmaref Native Corporation. He will be remembered as an active and dedicated community member who valued and practiced our subsistence way of life.

Please keep Percy’s family in your prayers as they navigate this difficult time.
