It is with heavy hearts that Klickitat PUD shares the news of the passing earlier today of former KPUD general manager Tom Svendsen.

It is with heavy hearts that Klickitat PUD shares the news of the passing, on January 4th, 2020, of former KPUD general manager Tom Svendsen.

Tom came to Goldendale and Klickitat PUD in 1976 as an electrical engineer. He served as general manager of the utility from 2003 until his retirement in 2009.

Tom’s involvement in and advocacy for renewable resources did not end when he left KPUD. He continued promoting and developing those resources through his involvement with the White Creek Wind Project.

We are thankful for the time and dedication Tom showed while he was here at the PUD and for the time and dedication that he gave to Goldendale and Klickitat County.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Tom’s family and friends.
