Steven Allery Jr. Services Dec. 1

Steven Wayne Allery Jr.

Memorial services for Steven Wayne Allery Jr. will be held 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at the United Pentecostal Church, 101 Cascade Creek Road.
A potluck reception will be held downstairs after the service.
Steven died Nov. 10, at the age of 32.
Steven “Stevieboy” Allery was born July 28, 1986, the son of Georgianna (Johnson) and Steven Allery Sr. He grew up in Sitka, and attended Sitka schools.
After earning his diploma, he started working at Sitka Producers Co-op, in the cold storage department. After five years he began working for Hardrock Construction, and was with the company at the time of his death.
When he wasn’t working, Steven loved to go hunting and fishing with family and friends.
Although he loved the hunting and fishing, his real pride and joy were his two beautiful children, Ferrah Rose and Mason Gage Allery.
Steven was preceded in death by his grandmother, Gertrude Hazel Shayen of Sitka, who he loved so much and is in heaven with his grandfather, George B. Johnson Sr. of Angoon, and his grandparents Jerome and Edna Allery of Holley, Minnesota.
He is survived by his children, Ferrah Rose Allery and Mason Gage Allery of Sitka; his mother and stepfather Georgianna and Michael Smith of Sitka; his dad, Steven Wayne Allery Sr. of Lawrence, Kansas; and  his stepfather Chris Polasky Sr. and Beth Polasky of Petoskey, Michigan.
His younger siblings, of Sitka, are Heather Allery (Joe Nelson), William Allery, Chris Polasky Jr. (Kendra Skultka), Douglas Polasky (Kayla Polasky), and Robert Polasky.
Steven’s seven beautiful nieces, Ariyanna and Niomi Nelson, Charline Skultka, Alissa Skultka-Padgett, Mia Skultka-Esparza, Klaudia Skultka-Adams and Kaliope Polasky; and two handsome nephews, Kaeden Skultka and Kalvyn Polasky, also survive.

Steven will be loved and missed by all of his friends and family, his family said.
“We love you, Steven, we all know you’re with Grandma and are in a better place.”
