Taskin was born in Ankara, Turkey on June 14, 1942 and later immigrated to the United States where he became a proud naturalized U.S. citizen. He graduated from Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey) in 1970 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering. Taskin worked for General Electric and had an outstanding thirty-two year career with Home Depot. Taskin lived in Miami, Florida, until 2006 when he moved to Tallahassee to be closer to family. He is survived by his sons, Tolga Dincman (Holly) of Tallahassee, and Dr. Toros Dincman (Savanna) of Charleston, South Carolina, as well as his grandson, Blake Dincman, of Tallahassee. He is also survived by his best friend, Izzet Pekarun, of Istanbul, Turkey; and former wife, Lale Toker of Pawley's Island, SC. Taskin was preceded in death by his parents, Hikmet and Hurmuz Dincman, and his brothers, Dr. Yalcin Dincman and Coskun Dincman.
