On Aug. 5, 2016, SVEC leader Ed Kaminsky passed away at the age of 91 after a long illness. Born in Chicago during the roaring twenties, he graduated from high school and joined the Army to learn a Bronze Star in the Battle of the Bulge and a Purple Heart in the Battle of the Ruhr. He returned from the war to work for many firms, most notably Lockheed Missiles & Space for thirty years. (In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Swords to Plowshares.) He was married to wife Liz for 63 years and produced 3 children, 7 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.
In addition to a successful career in Silicon Valley, Kaminsky gave back by volunteering for a number of community organizations. He helped future generations find careers in technology. It was an honor to work with him. Our hearts go out to all who were lucky enough to know Ed Kaminski. A memorial service will be held on Saturday August 13, 2016 1:00PM at Aquamaids Bingo, 1600 Martin Ave. Santa Clara, CA 95050.
