LAUGHLIN, NVIt is with heavy heart Matt Laughlin and Riverside Resortannounce the passing of Laughlin Pioneer and legend, Donald J. Laughlin, on Sunday morning, October 22, 2023.   He was 92 years young.  

Don Laughlin opened the first hotel and casino in Laughlin, NV, in 1966, and has been developing and donating growth ever since.  One of Don’s favorite jokes was he could not remember when he did not have a construction project underway; whether in Laughlin at his resort, or the Laughlin Bridge, Fisherman’s Access Community Park or Bullhead Laughlin International Airport.  

Don touched many lives in our local community as well as nationwide, and we understand how difficult this news will be for many.  Especially our Riverside Resort coworkers and family.  Don Laughlin was truly an amazing man to work with and learn from.  

Matt and the Laughlin family will be announcing Don Laughlin’s Memorial Service soon, and thank you in advance for your sympathy and prayers.

Rest in Peace, Don.  Your family loves you, and your community thanks you.
