Thomas Judson Innes, 74, of Scottsdale, Ariz., passed away peacefully at home on Apr. 7, 2019, after a long illness. Tom was born and raised in Canton, Pa., and graduated from Canton High School and the Case Institute of Technology with a BS in Engineering in 1966. Tom moved west with his wife Karen and son Robert in 1968 to become employee number 38 of Intel Corporation, where he would spend the next 30 years – in California, Israel and Arizona – as a participant in the remarkable technical and manufacturing innovations that propelled the microprocessor industry. His tenure at Intel began as a “computer chip” designer, later saw him establish a successful microprocessor design center in Haifa, Israel, a cherished highlight of his career, and ended as General Manager of Intel’s Embedded Microprocessor business and its Arizona site committee. Tom believed deeply in sharing the thrills and benefits of science and technology as widely as possible, a commitment he pursued as a Lifetime Trustee and former Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Arizona Science Center, helping effect its transition from storefront pilot in downtown Phoenix to today’s leadership position in STEM exhibits and education. He was also a founding member of the Arizona Science Lab where he developed curriculum and taught hands-on science and engineering workshops to hundreds of elementary and middle school children. In his off hours, he loved crossword puzzles and the beautiful sports cars of his youth. An engineer at heart, he never saw a problem that couldn’t be solved, or at least better understood, by plotting it on graph paper.
