FILE - In this Oct. 25, 2006 file photo, Booth Gardner walks in Wright Park, near his home in Tacoma. Gardner, a two-term Democratic governor who later in life spearheaded a campaign that made Washington the second state in the country to legalize assisted suicide for the terminally ill, has died after a long battle with Parkinson's disease. He was 76. Gardner died Friday, March 15, 2013 at his Tacoma home, family spokesman Ron Dotzauer said Saturday. He was the state's 19th governor. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)
