"... 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:

    James C. Wishard, May 19, 1980, Southwest Region, engineer technician. James was killed when he was recording data on a pad and walked behind a contractor’s truck while it was backing up.

    William L. Cook, May 24, 1977, Northwest Region, bridge maintenance technician. William was killed when he got caught between the counterweight and another part of the Swinomish Channel Bridge while performing maintenance work.

    Two Eastern Region maintenance technicians were killed along the freeway in Spokane in 1959 when a WSDOT paint truck exploded. Newspaper reports stated a flipped cigarette may have caused the large explosion.

      George H. Mulfinger, May 8, 1959. George died from injuries received when his paint truck ignited that day.

      Francis E. Baker, May 9, 1959. Francis was working on a nearby maintenance truck when the paint truck exploded. He died from his injuries the following day.
