Garrettson Dulin Jr. September 2, 1923 – January 20, 2020

Longtime Steamboat Springs resident, Garrettson Dulin Jr., 96, passed away January 20, 2020. He is survived by his daughter Shelby Dulin, of Steamboat Springs, and two grandchildren, Samuel Perley and Albert Perley, both of Charlotte, NC.

Garry and his late artist wife Jane, moved to Steamboat in 1979 and immediately became avid members and supporters of the local arts community. A former Board member and President of the San Francisco Ballet, Garry was well equipped and eager to share his experience, expertise, and fund-raising skills with the growing Arts Council.

Born September 2, 1923 in Pasadena, CA, Garry spent many of his summers working on a cattle ranch outside of San Diego. It was there he developed a love for horses, the outdoors, and the Cowboy.

After graduating from UCLA with a degree in economics, and a stint in the Army, Garry began a career in banking. He worked in New York City for 10 years before accepting a job with the US State Department during the Kennedy Administration. He and his family lived in Tunisia and Morocco during that time. His time in North Africa was extremely rewarding as he and Jane developed many friendships in the international community which they maintained throughout their lives.

After those two assignments Garry returned to banking and moved his family to San Francisco and worked for Bank of America. While there he and Jane supported many art and performing art organizations, including the San Francisco Ballet, the Museum of Modern Art, and the San Francisco Opera.

Garry will be remembered as an enthusiastic reader, a diehard Democrat, a lover of the arts, and for his laughter. He will be missed by many in the Steamboat Community.
