Leave a comment

I just heard the sad news that Doug Smeaton from Semiconductor Insights passed away yesterday in a diving accident. He was 57 and is survived by his wife and three sons.I had known Doug for many years as a friend of my family, on many occasions he had worked with my Father. He always struck me as a thoughtful guy who cared alot for the people around him. I remember specifically speaking to him a few months ago (maybe closer to a year now) and our entire discussion centered on catching up on how each others family was doing.My family sends out our condolences and shares in the sadness of losing such a gentleman.UPDATE:  The Memorial at the Semiconductor Insights Blog.
