Phoenix Wood products founder Phil Dickson has died in a crash that police said was a result of alcohol poisoning.
Dickson was found unconscious in his Phoenix home late Friday afternoon, the company said in a statement Saturday.
He was rushed to a hospital but later died, the statement said.
Dixon, who founded Phoenix Wood in 2000, was a founding member of the National Association of Homebuilders and a member of several boards of directors, according to the company.
He served on the boards of several other companies including Pritzker Associates and Gensler, according the company’s website.
“We are devastated to report that Phil D.D. has passed away,” the company statement said, without giving further details.
The Phoenix Fire Department said Dickson was a member, as well as a board member, of the Greater Phoenix Firefighters Association.
He was 66.
The company said that Dickson had recently become a full-time volunteer firefighter with the Phoenix Fire and Rescue Department.
It was not clear what the cause of his death was.
