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

    Edward Bowles, July 5, 1955, Eastern Region, maintenance technician. Ed injured a finger while fixing the tail gate latch of the truck. He was immediately treated by a doctor but died several weeks later from tetanus.

    Robert J. Forrest, July 7, 1982, South Central Region, transportation technician. Robert was on a paving project and walking with his back to the paving truck when he was struck by the truck.

    Gordon Burlingame, July 17, 1992, North Central Region, avalanche control supervisor. “Gordie” was working alone to remove a 29-foot high radio tower from a dormitory building roof at Berne Camp on Stevens Pass. The tower became unstable, fell and struck him.

    Patricia L. Oberg, July 19, 1989, Southwest Region, transportation technician. While on a survey crew, rocks at the end of a rock quarry gave way. Patricia fell to the bottom of the quarry, suffering head injuries.

    Paul J. Yandt, July 29, 1953, South Central Region, maintenance technician. Paul was killed while working south of Connell when a truck and trailer pinned him against his highway department truck.
