Donald “Uncle Don” Landskov, 85, of Seattle, died suddenly on May 6, 2018.

He was born Feb. 11, 1933, in Enumclaw to the late Mel and Ramona Landskov. He graduated in 1951 from Enumclaw High School and then joined the U.S. Army, serving in the Korean War. Upon his honorable discharge he began working for the railroad. While his true passion was in the remodeling of numerous homes throughout Seattle, he thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his friends and family. He also enjoyed playing any card game, but cribbage was at the top of the list. After spending the last 55 years living in Seattle and San Francisco, he was planning to move back to his home town of Enumclaw.

He is survived by sister Arlene Hubber of Enumclaw. He was preceded in death by sister and brother-in-law Donna and Bill Hickenbottom of Enumclaw; brother-in-law Richard Hubber of Enumclaw; and life partner Joe Merkins of Seattle.

There will be a celebration of life and open house from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 16, at his sister’s residence, 1021 Garfield St., Enumclaw. The family requests donations to honor his memory be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 19031 33rd Ave. W., No. 301, Lynnwood, Washington, 98038, or the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 22718, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 73123.
