Fred Hinshaw
Husband, father, environmentalist, hang glider

Fred Hinshaw died peacefully in his sleep of heart failure on March 20, 2013.  He was 60.  

Mr. Hinshaw was born on October 31, 1952 in Paris, France, where he was adopted by Randall and Pearl Hinshaw.  He arrived in the United States via the SS Caronia in 1954, landing in the Port of New York.  

The family moved to Ohio, where Mr. Hinshaw was naturalized in 1959.  They later settled in Pasadena and then in Claremont, where his father, an internationally recognized expert in monetary theory, was a professor at Claremont Graduate University.  Mr. Hinshaw attended Sycamore Elementary and El Roble Intermediate schools followed by Claremont High School, where he was active in soccer, tennis and photography.  

He went on to UC Santa Barbara, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in environmental biology.  After graduation, he worked for the county of San Bernardino for 15 years as a city planner.  

In 1981, Mr. Hinshaw met his future wife, Cecile Figueroa, at a bar in Crestline.  They fell in love and were married on September 26, 1985.  Nearly 3 years later, they welcomed a daughter, Caitlan.  

Mr. Hinshaw was a man of many enthusiasms.  He was a skilled photographer who took particularly evocative black-and-white photos.  He took countless photos in Italy each time he traveled there in order to document the Claremont-Bologna Monetary Conference Series his father founded in 1967.  

Mr. Hinshaw was a fan of music, and prided himself on having seen the Grateful Dead in concert several times.  He was also fond of outdoor activities, such as beach camping with his family in spots like San Clemente and hang gliding.  On his last hang-gliding trip, he was able to soar in tandem with his daughter, an experience he cherished.  

He was a loving man with a good sense of humor and will be deeply missed, family shared.  

Mr. Hinshaw is survived by his wife Cecile, his daughter Caitlan, his brother and his wife, Bob and Homa Hinshaw of Upland, and his sister and her husband, Elizabeth and Bob Osgood of Ohio.  

As a tribute to Mr. Hinshaw’s love of hang gliding, a memorial service will be held on April 13 at 10 a.m. at the Andy Jackson Airpark, located at 6191 N. Badger Canyon Rd. in San Bernardino.  Reception to immediately follow in Grand Terrace; directions will be provided at the service.
