"... 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:

    Michael Malone, June 4, 1993, Northwest Region, transportation engineer. Mike was struck by a drunk driver who drove into a marked work zone.

    William T. Owens, June 15, 1971, Southwest Region, maintenance technician. William was killed when a tractor he was repairing inadvertently started (workers thought it was in neutral) and ran over him.

    Harold J. Allen, June 30, 1967, Eastern Region, engineer technician. Harold was "riding" on a running board of a truck while taking pit samples. He fell as he jumped off and was run over by the truck.

    George J. Heaton, June 18, 1966, engineer technician.
    Claude M. Waterman, June 18, 1966, engineer technician. Two Eastern Region employees were killed when a driver fell asleep at the wheel and entered their survey work zone, striking both of them.

    William F. Holmes, June 14, 1960, Headquarters, traffic recorder. Bill was resetting overturned traffic cones on the Lake Washington Bridge when he was struck by a car.





 

WSDOTMF News

Memorial Foundation pink WSDOT hat continues to get mileage.

On the summit of Shastina last Saturday winds were too high (100 mph) to attempt climbing Shasta at 14,179 ft, so we went for Shastina at 12,329 ft. Kris Reitman, WSDOT Deputy Communications Director, had to anchor the bottom of our banner because the winds were at steady 60 mph! Pink hat peeking out from under my helmet.
