"... 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:

    Frank E. Potter, Dec. 1, 1950, North Central Region, Maintenance Laborer. Frank was killed when a car skidded while trying to slow down in a work zone and pinned him against the sand truck he was working on east of Leavenworth.

    George D. Adair, Dec. 5, 1979, South Central Region, Transportation Technician 3. George was killed in a marked work zone when a passing driver sneezed, lost control of the vehicle and veered into the work zone.

    Gary Davis, Dec. 11, 1963, Northwest Region, Engineer Technician 1. Gary was surveying an overpass of Highway 99 north of Marysville when his crew heard a train coming and rushed to get off the overpass. Gary slipped and was struck.

    Eino W. Mattila, Dec. 12, 1962, Southwest Region, Maintenance Technician. Eino was working with a state road crew on Highway 99 north of Vancouver when he was struck by a motorist who lost control and skidded into the work zone after being involved a collision.

    Russell H. Barker, Dec. 14, 1979, Olympic Region, Maintenance Technician 2. Russell died as he drove a dump truck over the Bogachiel River Bridge. Flood waters washed out the bridge supports, causing a collapsed section of the bridge to strike the truck.

    Laird D. Chambers, Dec. 15, 1950, Olympic Region, Engineer Technician. Laird was working on a road project north of Lilliwaup. A construction company truck driver, who didn’t realize Laird was behind his truck, backed up and struck him.

    Andrew Kaelberer, Dec. 27, 1956, South Central Region, Maintenance Technician. Andrew was buried in sand while working in maintenance shed in Ellensburg.
