Thomas Hinkelman, 1925 - 2015

We are sad to announce the first Administrator of the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics, Thomas David Hinkelman , passed away on 24 July 2015.
Tom was a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he received a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He received his MBA from Harvard University. Tom served as an ensign in the United States Navy during World War II. Hinkelman was a pioneer in the computer and semiconductor industries, working for Eckert Mauchly, General Electric, Motorola and Fairchild. He was Executive Director for the Semiconductor Industry Association for a number of years before leaving to start WSTS. Tom died peacefully with family by his side. He is survived by his six children, fourteen grandchildren and two great grandsons. His beloved wife of sixty years, Winnie, passed away in 2011. Barbara Smith, one of Tom's daughters, has worked for WSTS since it was formed in 1986.

A gathering to honor Tom and to remember a life well-lived will be held on Sunday, September 27th at 10:30 a.m. in Shoup Park in Los Altos, California.  All those who knew and appreciated Tom are welcome.
