HINRICHS -- Dr. H. Richard Hinrichs, M.D. Noted pathologist, Dr. H. Richard Hinrichs, passed away at his home Friday, November 5. Dr. Hinrichs was a partner in Pathology Associates of Albuquerque, and served as Director of both Albuquerque's Kaseman-Presbyterian Hospital Laboratory and at Northeast Regional Hospital in Las Vegas, NM. He is survived by his wife Lynn, son Jack, daughters Katie and Kristen, son-in-law Alan Randolph and granddaughter Naomi Randolph. Dick was known by his friends for his abiding love of family, his generosity of spirit, and his deep intellectual curiosity. He loved discovery, and his work as a pathologist provided him great personal satisfaction. Beyond work, his interest in learning and athletics continued throughout his life. Dick Hinrichs was born January 24, 1939, in Waukegan, Illinois. He attended undergraduate, dental, and medical school at Northwestern University. Following medical school, he served as an intern at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1968 he married Lynn Baldwin. Shortly thereafter, they moved to California where Dick was the Chief Clinical Pathology Resident at the University of California's San Francisco Medical Center. Dick served in the U.S. Navy as a Lieutenant Commander at Jacksonville Naval Air Station. Subsequently, he practiced medicine at Bon Secours Hospital in Methuen, Massachusetts. In 1982, Dick and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. In Albuquerque, Dick was Director of Albuquerque's Kaseman-Presbyterian Hospital Laboratory. He was regarded as a pathology Renaissance man with a wide breadth of expertise from blood bank work, to clinical and surgical pathology. But most of all, he was acknowledged as the expert in breast biopsy pathology, and his practice handled the bulk of these cases in Albuquerque. His sincere personality and dedication to excellence, led him to be regarded as a team player and a leading force in Kaseman's growth and success. He is acknowledged to have been a pillar of Kaseman pathology group over the last 20 years. Dr. Hinrichs was a Fellow of the College of American Pathologists and of the International Academy of Pathology. Outside of work, Dick had a myriad of interests both intellectual and athletic, from history to racing bicycles. His hobbies ranged from building and flying model airplanes, to fly-fishing, golf, and roller-blading. He was always learning new things. At the age of fifty he took up gliding and, most recently, started learning to play classical guitar. Dick's sudden departure came as a surprise to many, because of his physical vitality. At age the age of 50, he took up ice hockey. In his mid 50s he placed 2nd in open road bicycle racing in the state of New Mexico for his age class. Until the end, he had the strength and endurance of a much younger man. Dick loved to build things, from model airplanes to handmade wooden furniture. Over the years, Dick had become a talented woodworker, a pastime that was an outlet for both his analytic and his artistic talents. He produced objects of great beauty and functionality for friends and family, ranging from Queen Ann chairs to elaborate baby cradles, all with impeccable grace, fit and finish. Dick's generosity, good nature, laugh, and love will be missed by co-workers, friends and family. A full funeral service will be held at the Cathedral Church of St. John, at 5:30 p.m., on Tuesday, November 9th, at 318 Silver S.W., Albuquerque, NM. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to the Cathedral Church of St. John, PO Box 1246, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87103-1246, or the Susan G.
