THOMAS DAVID HINKELMAN

OBIT ThomasHinkelman

Thomas David Hinkelman, a pioneer in the computer and semiconductor industries, died peacefully in Los Gatos, July 24, 2015 with family at his side. Born August 8, 1925, Tom was the son of John Ward Hinkelman, an office manager for the Pennsylvania Railroad, and Clara Hinkelman, nee Koehler. He had two brothers, John Ward Jr. (Jack) and William Joseph (Bill).  In high school, Tom participated as a halfback in football and as a sprinter in track. He was captain of the track team. He was a fast and fierce competitor which gained him invitations to both the Penn Relays and the 1948 Olympic Trials. In the Penn Relays he and his brother Bill were on the winning 4x440 relay team. Although he didn’t fare as well in the Olympic Trials, he kept his relay baton, which he later gave to his granddaughter, Laura, telling her that even if things didn’t work out exactly as she wanted, she must always do her best.
