1946 - December 20, 2010
I am very sad to let everyone know that John Rasmussen's wife, Bunny died Monday, December 20, 2010.
Bunny was present at every Anchorage Race. She ran the sales of items in the club house. John has been the rock of the ASDRA club. He especially has extended great efforts in maintaining the race trail, many times by himself. John is the first and last person to greet every musher handing out and collecting bibs for every race.
Please send cards to John Rasmussen at 9741 Elmore Rd., Anchorage, AK 99507
The service will be Monday December 27, 2010 at 2:00
