David Mills, a retired University of Delaware professor known as the
“father time” of the Internet, *passed away*
January 17, 2024. Dr. Mills is survived by his wife Beverly Mills, his
daughter Eileen Schnitzler, his son Keith Mills, and his brother Gregory

You’re invited to join the Mills family and the University of Delaware
College of Engineering for a secular memorial for Dr. David Mills at 3 p.m.
on March 11 in Mitchell Hall.

Dr. Mills, who held appointments in UD’s College of Engineering in the
departments of electrical and computer engineering and computer and
information sciences, is most well-known for developing the network time
protocol, the system that allows computers on a network to synchronize
their time. Along with being a pioneer of the early Internet, he is
remembered for his curiosity, knowledge and enthusiasm.

The impact of Dr. Mills’ work was recognized by several professional
societies—Dr. Mills was a member of the National Academy of Engineering,
the Internet Society (ISOC), the American Association for the Advancement
of Science and he was a Fellow of both the Association for Computing
Machinery and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

Outside of his career’s many achievements, Dr. Mills’ hobbies included
running an amateur radio station (W3HCF) out of his home in Newark. He was
also a member of the American Radio Relay League, the Radio Society of
Great Britain and the Amateur Satellite Organization.
