Jason Clarence Takenouchi

Jason Clarence Takenouchi, 45, died Dec. 22, 2020, peacefully in New Orleans, Louisiana.

He was born Oct. 9, 1976, in Sacramento, California.

“Jason grew up in South Lake Tahoe through his high school years and loved the people that he lived with,” his family writes. “Jason loved to travel and has told many stories, but when he moved to Alaska (in) 2004, he fell in love with fishing and hunting and raising his beautiful family.”

He resided in Ketchikan from 2004 to 2018.

Mr. Takenouchi worked as a blown glass artist and a fisherman. He enjoyed hunting, hiking, walking the beaches, blowing glass and being a father.

A favorite verse was Proverbs 29:23 —  “A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.”

Mr. Takenouchi is survived by his daughter, Krimson Ember Takenouchi of Ketchikan; stepson, Dustin James Pomeroy of Seattle; mother, Pat Takenouchi of Arizona; and brother, Scott Takenouchi of Arizona.

A service will be at 11 a.m. Jan. 22, 2021, at the Lighthouse Church of God, 3405 Baranof Ave.

Mr. Takenouchi’s remains will be interred at Bayview Cemetery.
