Gordon D. Raisler Obituary
Gordon D. Raisler

Gordon D. Raisler, D.D.S, age 87, went to his eternal home on March 27, 2017, in Wenatchee WA. He was born on June 3, 1929 to John and Esther (Norris) Raisler, the eldest of four brothers in Beach, North Dakota. Gordon attended High School in Conrad, Montana, enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, and graduated from University of Montana. He then went on to the University of Washington School of Dentistry, graduating in 1954. He met his devoted wife of 64 years Ruth Ann Richardson, in Sun Valley, Idaho and they married November 6, 1953. Living first in Seattle and then in Bellevue, they raised two daughters while Gordon maintained his dental practice in Downtown Seattle. He took great pride in providing exceptional care to his many generations of devoted patients. Gordon was a founding member of the Dr. Spratley Gold Foil Study Club and was appointed to the WA State Board of Dental Examiners by Governor Dan Evans. Gordon loved the outdoors and enjoying Sun Valley ski trips with Ruth, and hunting and fishing trips with life long dental school classmates, family and friends. Lake Chelan became their summer get away when Gordon and Ruth had a condo at Spader Bay. He also loved the "Inca Maru", our inboard-outboard cuddy cabin cruiser that made many trips to Neah Bay and to the San Juan and Gulf Islands. After retirement, Gordon and Ruth took off in their RV for snowbird winters in Arizona and made several RV trips to explore our beautiful country. Gordon was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Jack and Warren. He is survived by his wife Ruth; daughters Jill (Dr. Barry) Raisler Wise, J.D. and Jana (Robert) Raisler Noges, D.D.S.; brother Richard Raisler D.D.S. of La Conner, WA; and granddaughters Clare E. and Mattie L. Wise.
