Local boat ramp dedicated to ODFW supporter

June 19, 2009


COOS BAY, Ore. – Local business owner Donald Lee Laskey, who pioneered new techniques for building and installing boat ramps, is being honored during a Thursday, June 25 ceremony at Eastside boat ramp in Coos Bay. The dedication begins at 3:00 p.m. and the public is invited. A large rock with a plaque thanking Laskey for his support of local fisheries will be unveiled.

“Mr. Laskey has been a long-time supporter of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and has done so much work to benefit boaters and anglers in Coos County,” said Mike Gray, Acting Umpqua Watershed District Manager. “His techniques for building and installing boat ramps are considered pioneering and have been used for many ramp installations around the state.”

ODFW is honoring Laskey for his many years of work building boat ramps, fish ladders, and other facilities. Laskey, now retired, is co-founder of Laskey-Clifton Corp.
