"My thoughts and prayers are with the Soboleff family as they mourn the passing of Walter. Alaska has lost one of its great leaders. Walter was a dear friend to Lu and me and I am deeply saddened by his passing. Walter and Lu worked together on numerous Alaska Native issues throughout the years and I was always amazed at the humbleness and deep dedication to Alaska he showed. Throughout his life, Walter affected the lives of countless Alaskans and today while we mourn his passing, lets also celebrate the life of a true Alaskan hero."
