Gary Mallett Obituary

Gary Charles Mallett was born on March 29, 1943, in Yuba City California to parents, Berl and Marie Mallett. He died January 14, 2024 in Hermiston, OR at the age of 80 years. Gary grew up in Yuba City, CA and graduated from Yuba City Union High School in 1961. After graduating he went on to work for Crum Meat Company in McArthur, CA where his passion for the meat industry started. He then worked for Del Pero-Mondon Meat Company in Marysville, CA. While living in Yuba City he was also a volunteer fire fighter. Later, he expanded his meat processing career by purchasing a small meat plant in Stanfield, OR in 1977 (Huston Meat Co.) and moved his family to pursue his passion. In Stanfield he continued his volunteer firefighting as a training agent. In 1985 he went into partnership with Eric Clow, operating Eastern Oregon Mobile Slaughter, where he built an enormous customer base and a great relationship with the community that he cherished. Gary spent a lot of his time working (of course), and was quite the avid golfer. After almost 50 years of cutting meat, he retired to pursue one of his favorite hobbies, camping. He was a camp host for several years in northern California, before FINALLY retiring (again) and moving back to Hermiston, OR.

Gary was a member of the Elks, Eagles and Moose Lodges. 

Gary is survived by his beloved dog: Gidget; his sister: Virginia of Tacoma, WA; sister: Linda of Yuba City, CA; brother: Kenny of Yuba City, CA; and sister: Velda (John) of Hermiston, OR; daughters: Annette (Ed) of Hermiston, OR, Debbie (Frank) of Fossil, OR, Teresa (Ted) of Hermiston, OR;  son: Richard of Bend, OR; grandchildren: Jacob, Jamie (Bill), James Michael (Codi), Christopher (Falica), Daniel (Krysten), Jannette (Rich), Trevor (Tiffani), Blake, Alexis, and Casee; great grandchildren: Charlie, Dusty, Twila, Hunter, Wyatt, Rhett, Hanna, River and Koda; and numerous nieces and nephews.
