Dr. Gary Duskin, DVM of Stanwood, WA, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, at the age of 80. Gary was born to Gordon and Helen Duskin on October 29, 1936, in Arlington, WA. He graduated from Arlington High School in 1955 with his sweetheart and future wife, Marie. They were married, and celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary on the date of his passing. Gary graduated from Washington State University as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1961 and was a co-founder of Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital. He enjoyed being a board member, officer and President of several veterinary organizations, both locally and internationally. Part of his lifetime passion for horses included breeding, raising and racing thoroughbreds and he enjoyed a long association with Longacres and Emerald Downs. His love of horses and the outdoors poured over into his personal life; Gary was often found trail riding, fishing and hunting. He was active in his church community and valued faith and family above all else. Gary and Marie raised their four children at Top O' the Ridge Thoroughbred Farm in Lake Stevens, WA, which they ultimately sold to become Cavelero Mid High School. Gary was preceded in death by his brother, Dennis. He is survived by his wife, Marie: brothers, Dale (Carol) Duskin and David (Kay) Duskin, sister, Margie (Dennis) Donnelly; children, Scott (Deanna) Duskin, Todd (Becky) Duskin, Lisa (Jesse) Hanson, Chris (Becca) Duskin, Robert (Virginia) Dutcher, and eleven grandchildren. Visitation will be held on Thursday, August 10, 2017, from 4-7 p.m. at Evergreen Funeral Home, Everett. The Memorial Service will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, August 11, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Marysville. Donations may be made to the Gary and Marie Duskin Endowed Scholarship at WSU College of Veterinary Medicine.
