State Sen. Karen Fraser’s husband dies on Alaska trip

OLYMPIA — The husband of Sen. Karen Fraser has died in Alaska while accompanying his wife at a meeting.

The Secretary of the Senate sent an email Wednesday to staff and senators informing them of the death of Tim Malone, who died Tuesday. Malone had traveled to Anchorage with Fraser, who was attending a Pacific Northwest Economic Region meeting this week. Malone was 78.

Deputy Secretary of the Senate Brad Hendrickson said Wednesday that he didn’t have many details, but that at some point during the meeting or after dinner, Malone collapsed. Malone retired in 1989 from the state Attorney General’s Office, where he worked as a senior assistant attorney general.

Fraser, of Olympia, is the Senate Democratic caucus chair and has served in the Senate for 20 years.
