Husband of Juneau mayor killed in Arizona motorcycle accident

Apr. 23—Greg Weldon, the husband of Juneau Mayor Beth Weldon, was killed in a motorcycle accident over the weekend in the Lower 48, the city said on Monday.

Weldon, 60, died late Sunday morning, the city said in a statement. Deputy City Manager Robert Barr said Weldon was killed in a motorcycle accident in northern Arizona. Barr did not anticipate any impacts to city business or the mayor's office, he said.

Greg Weldon co-owned a business in Juneau, Glacier Auto Parts, with Mayor Beth Weldon. The NAPA auto parts store posted a message on its Facebook page Monday sharing the news of Weldon's death.

"He loved riding his Harley and was just taken too soon," the post read in part.

The mayor and her family have requested privacy "as they grieve the loss of their husband, father, and friend," the city's statement said.

"The CBJ Assembly, employees and residents of Juneau all extend our deepest condolences to Mayor Beth and her family," the statement said.
