#Alaska and the country lost a patriot tonight. Rest in peace Clem Tillion.@SarahKCowan here. I had the great fortune of spending a weekend in Halibut Cove with #ClemTillion in May. He was so full of life, even diminished. It’s hard to imagine him gone
Clement Tillion, no one called him that, was stubborn and independent and often right. He knew fish and politics and he was a master storyteller. He was a great man. This video does him justice. RIP Clem. #akleg #akgov

I’m saddened to hear of Clem Tillion’s passing. This @alaskalandmine podcast with him is great. He was also prominent in the Season 1 of “Midnight Oil” from @AKpublicnews. Through those and Hammonds autobiography, Tillion became one of my favorite Alaskans

I am so sad to learn of the passing of my friend Clem Tillion. Clem was a legend in the world of Alaska fisheries policy, a nine-term Alaska State Legislator, & just a great guy. I’ll miss visiting with Clem at his house in Halibut Cove, talking history and politics.
Alaska has lost another legend & I have lost a mentor & friend w/the passing of Clem Tillion. My favorite memories of Clem are the times I visited him at Halibut Cove. Alaska weeps again today at the loss of this giant who leaves an indelible mark on the history our great state.
