Tery Baskin
October 24, 1953  -  March 8, 2019


Tery Baskin, age 65, of Little Rock died March 8, 2019. He was survived by his wife of 42 years, Mary; daughter, Julie Lewis (Randy); son, Jeff Baskin and girlfriend, Marissa Hamel; parents, Ina and Jim (deceased) Baskin; sister, Jimmie (John) Coleman; nieces, Carrie Moore and Sydney Coleman; nephews, Jeremy Walsh, Rob Walsh, Adam Walsh and Austin Coleman.
Tery's father was a career Army soldier so he lived all over the South and spent 3 years growing up in France then graduated from high school in Lawton, OK. A 1975 graduate from AR Tech, Tery was inducted into the Tech Hall of Distinction in 2016. He received his doctorate from the UAMS College of Pharmacy.
Tery held leadership positions for the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) for many years beginning when he was a student. He was the longest serving Board member in the 167 year history of the organization, most recently serving as Treasurer. He spent many years traveling to Washington DC for meetings and to 42 consecutive annual conventions.
Tery was the owner of McCain and Aday's pharmacies before working for the Arkansas Pharmacists Association where he served as one of the youngest Presidents ever elected. He ran Pharmacy Associates, a pharmacy benefits management company before becoming an executive for NMHC on Long Island, NY for 7 years. He returned to Little Rock to start RxResults to help companies to control costs of supplying health care to their employees for the past 10 years.
He was an avid Razorback fan and outdoorsman, a wonderful family man and member of Fellowship Bible Church where he served on the missions commission and as an usher. He went on mission trips to Haiti and Honduras to provide medical care to impoverished people.
Tery loved and was loved by a host of cousins, college buddies, colleagues, church friends, his beloved pets including his Golden Retrievers Buck and Duke, and friends around the country. He had a knack for making friends wherever he went.
Donations in Tery's honor may be made online or by check to either World Gospel Outreach (a medical mission and orphanage in Honduras) or the American Pharmacists Association Foundation.
