David Alan Fitzsimmons passed away on August 19, 2019 at his home in Vancouver, WA., following an eight month battle with cancer. He was born in Lewiston, Idaho on May 10, 1958, the son of Norm and Barb Fitzsimmons.

He graduated from Orofino High School in 1976. He then moved to Valdez, Alaska for work.

After starting his family he returned to Moscow, Idaho to attend the University of Idaho, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science.

He started a 36 year career in the electric utility industry with Washington Water Power (Avista) as a meter reader, culminating with his role as the Transmission Sales Manager at Bonneville Power Administration.

He is survived by his parents, his wife of 20 years, three children, three step children, seventeen grandchildren, one sister and several nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Vancouver, WA., at 1 p.m. on Sept. 7, 2019.

Dave was passionate about safety and being prepared. In lieu of flowers, Dave would like you to take time to prepare yourself and your family to assure you are prepared in the event of any disruption or disaster.
