In Memoriam

Dr. Herkimer

I wanted everyone to know about the passing of Dr. Allen Herkimer, who was a professor of health administration at Texas State University from 1986 until his retirement in 1996. Born and reared in the Mohawk Valley, New York, area, Gil Herkimer (Allen G. Herkimer, Jr.) traveled extensively throughout the United States and overseas as a corporate executive, university professor, and textbook author. He returned in his retirement years to his first two loves: studying history and playing jazz. Herkimer and his wife, Fay, proudly declared themselves to be native New Yorkers who lived in Southern California for nearly twenty years. They lived in South Texas. Recently Gil passed away peacefully at a long term care facility in Corpus Christi. He was 91. Our thoughts and prayer are with Dr. Herkimer's many friends and family.

He was a free spirit, full of life, a great story teller and a friend to all. He was a kind hearted, gentle soul who always tried to do the right thing.
