Wiemer Ph.D., Klaus C. Passed away on August 8th after a brief but courageous battle with Esophageal Cancer. Klaus was born on August 8th 1937 in Duisburg, Germany. Klaus was a graduate of the German Air Force Academy and was a Lieutenant at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas. Klaus received his Ph.D. in Physics from Virginia Tech in 1969. He then worked at Texas Instruments for many years and received numerous accolades for his accomplishments in the Semiconductor Industry. Klaus also achieved similar success with the Thomas Group Inc. located in Dallas. By 1988 Klaus became the President, COO and Director of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC). TSMC became one of the most well run and profitable Semiconductor companies in the world. Always up for a new challenge, Klaus became the President, CEO, and Director of Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing in the Republic of Singapore. Perhaps one of his greatest joys was the founding of Techulon INC. The focus of this company is to pioneer effective cures and specific treatments of multi-drug resistant infections such as MRSA using state of the art technologies. A key to Klaus's success was his marriage to Stella for 55 years. There were so many aspects to Klaus that are impossible to put on paper; everyone he met was truly touched by his demeanor and presence. He is survived by his wife Stella, son Klaus Jr. Ph.D. and daughter in law Linda, daughter Monica, and grandsons Dylan and Christian. Family and friends will celebrate Klaus's life at 10.30 a.m. Thursday, August 21st at All Saints Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Klaus C. Wiemer Ph.D. Memorial Fund for Esophageal Cancer Research at the American Cancer Society. For a full obituary and to express online condolences, please visit www.sparkman-hillcrest.com
