  • Notes 
    • Note: The following is typed from my rough draft for Grandpa's Eulogy. This eulogy was read at his funeral.

      George Cecil Clayton (better known as) Fred Hirst was born February 13, 1897 in Zanesville, Ohio. He came to Spokane by railroad with his mother at the age of two. He spent his early years attending school in Spokane. At the age of fifteen he started working as a fireman for the great Northern railroad. As a fireman he made the Hillyard to Marcus run.

      As a young man in his twenties he headed for Alaska with his sister and cousin. While in Alaska he helped run a trading post with his sister in addition to making the mail run by dog sled to the outlying communities.

      After returning from Alaska he went to work on the Lake Chelan Falls Dam where he began a long career of working construction. From Chelan he moved to Leavenworth where he helped build the Eight Mile Tunnel through the Cascades for the Great Northern Railroad.

      In 1932 he moved to Coulee Dam where construction was just beginning. He spent the next thirty-three years as a crane operator working on various stages of construction, building Coulee Dam.

      When construction finally ended at Coulee Dam he spent five years fulfilling his lifetime dream of cattle ranching.

      He wrapped up his construction career by working at such places as Chief Joe Dam, Priest Rapids Dam, Wanapum Dam, and finally at Boundary Dam. He moved to the Spokane valley in 1964. After retiring he became active in the Operating Engineers Credit Union where for ten years he served as loan officer and president.
