It is with great sorrow and sadness we must notify you that long time boardmember David Pratt passed away on 5/21/21.
David has been a Tooley Water District boardmember since the 1990's and was our longest standing boardmember.
David and his wife Kay grew up in The Dalles and were married in 1976. David's job took them to Nebraska where he worked for the railroad. In the 1990's they moved back to The Dalles region and David signed up to be a Tooley Water District Boardmember. In those days Tooley Water District didn't outsource to a system operator, rather the board maintained the system themselves. This made for a lot of work for the board. David took on the role of secretary/treasurer. As such he was responsible for maintaining the books, meeting agendas/minutes, and state filings.
Kay says two things were really important to David:
1) His faith in God. It was important to David that all people make peace with God before they leave this earth.
2) Tooley Water District. David really enjoyed and valued his ability to give back to his community through his work with Tooley Water District.
David Pratt will be sorely missed. Our community and water system are much better because of David's efforts.
