Carney, a Democrat, served two stints in the Legislature, from 1979 to 1982 and from 1991 to 1994.

“Pat Carney was a leader who made meaningful contributions in the Mat-Su Valley and the state as a whole,” said a statement from Gov. Mike Dunleavy and first lady Rose Dunleavy on Wednesday. “Pat was part of many significant decisions in Alaska’s history during his legislative service. Rose and I knew him personally and thank Pat for his contributions over his multiple terms in office. We offer our condolences to the Carney family in their time of grieving.”

Dunleavy ordered that U.S. flags and Alaska state flags fly at half-staff on Friday in Carney’s honor.
