Station Casino President Dies In Water Accident

Station Casinos was mourning its president, Richard Haskins, who passed away last month after an accident with a watercraft while on vacation in Michigan. Haskins had been with Station for more than 25 years, spending the last 10 as president. He was second from the top at Station behind CEO Frank Fertitta III.

In a statement issued by the company, Fertitta said, “Words cannot express what Rich has meant to the company and to me in the 25 years he has been with Station Casinos. He was a trusted adviser, a brilliant strategist, a steady hand in good times and in bad and most important—a friend to all.

“It is very hard to imagine Station Casinos being the company it is today without Rich. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his children, his family, and his loved ones,” Fertitta concluded.

The company said it will announce a successor to Haskins in the near future.
