Barrow Utilities and Electric Cooperative, Inc. Board of Directors and Staff would like to share their condolences to the Ahgeak family in honor of our beloved board member, Karl Derek Ahgeak.

Not only was Derek an excellent basketball coach, but a loved and respected Board of Director for BUECI since 2018. He was a great advocate for the members by arguing for fair rates and tariffs and donating to youth activities. Derek always showed his appreciation to the BUECI staff for their work to the community during his visits to the office.

We will miss his warm smiles, acts of kindness, and encouragement to keep serving the community. The BUECI Board of Directors and employees send their deepest condolences to his family.
