Carl Brady passes

Carl Brady, a longtime trustee of the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation and community and political activist, has passed. He died at Providence Hospital today.

Brady was an insurance executive from 1967 through 2008. He served on the Board of Trustees of Alaska Pacific University, and was a community advisory board member for Wells Fargo Bank Alaska and the Alaska Command Civilian Advisory Board. Earlier, he was the Honorary Consul of Belgium and served as a National Trustee of Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Brady was reappointed in 2015 to a four-year public seat by then-Gov. Bill Walker; he had already served three times on the Board: from 1991-1995, from 2003-2009, and from 2011 to present. Brady chaired the APFC Board of Trustees from 1992-1993 and from 2003-2007; and had served as the vice chair for many years. He was reappointed by Gov. Mike Dunleavy in 2019.

Gov. Dunleavy and First Lady Rose Dunleavy mourned his passing:

“Rose and I want to express our deepest condolences to Carl’s family during this difficult time,” Dunleavy said. “Carl was an admired leader in both the business sector and the public policy arena. He was always willing to serve his fellow Alaskans – his contributions as a member of the Alaska Permanent Fund Board across three decades can’t be overstated. Carl was a great Alaskan whose void will be felt by many.”

  1. Having know Carl since the days of Anchorage High School and worked with him over the years especially on Permanent Fund issues, I recognize the contributions Carl and the Brady family have made to the people of Alaska. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to his family.
