"... To preserve the memory of the Washington State Department of Transportation fallen workers and to provide assistance to active and retired employees and their families in times of need."



Monthly Memorial Tribute
This month we pay tribute to and remember these
WSDOT employees who died in work zone incidents:

    William L. Ashley, Aug. 3, 1976, South Central Region, maintenance laborer. William and a co-worker were checking flood damage off of State Route 128 when their vehicle was hit by a wall of water. The co-worker jumped to safety, but William was thrown from the cab and killed.

    Wayne "Jake" Baardson, Aug. 12, 2002, Northwest Region, maintenance tech 2. Jake was securing a mower to a trailer on the shoulder of State Route 18 near Covington when an erratic driver left the highway and struck him.

    William R. Pitts, Aug. 20, 1951, Eastern Region, engineering aide. William was working near railroad tracks when he was struck by a locomotive.

    Donald E. Fritsvold, Aug. 21, 1991, Southwest Region, maintenance tech 2. Donald was clearing litter from Interstate 5 when he ran from the shoulder into traffic to pick up paper, apparently misjudging the speed of an on-coming vehicle, which struck him.

    Richard L. Androsko, Aug. 28, 1984, Northwest Region, maintenance tech 2. Richard was directing traffic around a rock spill on a highway. A driver hit their brakes and swerved suddenly, striking Richard.

    Harold L. Gustafson, Aug. 31, 1973, Northwest Region, maintenance tech 1. Harold was removing cones after edge striping on Interstate 5 and was struck by a vehicle exiting the freeway on an off-ramp.
