Chris Birch memorial: Aug. 15

The family of Sen. Chris Birch has announced a celebration of his life will take place on Aug. 15 at 3 pm at Hilltop Ski Area in Anchorage.

“All those who knew and loved Chris are welcome to come and share community, camaraderie, and coffee, just as Chris would have wanted,” the family announced.

Chris served for many years on the Hilltop Ski Area board of directors and believed strongly in their mission to support recreational opportunities for youth. He was instrumental in helping the organization secure funding to build the chalet.

In addition to celebrating his and Pam’s 25th wedding anniversary at Hilltop, it was the site of Logan and Heather’s engagement, and Tali’s graduation from law school. Chris and Pam Birch could be found hiking at the Hilltop Ski area almost on a daily basis, when not in Juneau.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests a contribution in support of the community Chris loved to Lutheran Social Services of Alaska.

Birch died from an aortic dissection on Aug. 7.
