Pete H. Leov beloved brother and friend, 70, of Sterling, Alaska, passed away on Dec. 20, 2021, after a battle with cancer. Pete was born Feb. 24, 1951, to Harry and Ann Leov in Seattle, Washington. After graduating West Anchorage High School in 1969, he signed on with the IBEW where he served and retired after 50 years. One of his colleagues and friend Dave Reaves wrote, “Pete was a giant in the line trade as the lineman instructor at the Alaska Electrical Apprenticeship School for decades where he trained and molded hundreds of future linemen. Pete will be sorely missed and I know he will be remembered for all he did for our industry.”

Pete was known for putting on a barbeque for years at the IBEW Apprenticeship School. He was an avid outdoorsman during his lifetime. He was also a pilot who did guided fishing and hunting tours, and he loved to hunt, fish and hike himself. Pete especially loved caring for and riding his horse ‘Duke.’

Pete is survived by his grandson, Justin Orth, and his siblings Pam Allman, Debbie Schneider, Janice Williams, Lynn Davids, Bill Williams, Darlene Day and Don Williams.

The celebration of life will be held in Anchorage at the Alaska Aviation Museum, 4721 Aircraft Drive, on Saturday, Jan. 29, 2022, from 1-4 p.m.
