Dear Mrs. Gabroy and Family,
I am so very saddened to have just learned of John's passing. I would like to express my great admiration for John, not only as an attorney but also as a human being. John represented me at a very difficult time in my life. He unfailingly demonstrated not only brilliance and legal acumen but honor and goodness. John was a man of true integrity and maintained those standards regardless of the conduct of others. And it was such a pleasure to work with John! He had my highest respect. He made a vast difference in my life and I will never forget this wonderful man. The legal world and indeed the world has lost a fine man, and I am so very sorry for your immeasurable personal loss.

Condolences to the family used to work for John back in the 1982.

Dear Gabroys,

To say I am saddened by John's passing doesn't begin to express how I feel. John was, from the first day I met him, a great friend, confidant and life advisor. He was, in my experience, a shrewd judge of character and displayed it on day one. His first professional advice to me as a young businessman going to deposition was "always tell me everything. We don't want me finding things out at the same time the other side does." At the same time he also coached me to "only answer the question you're asked. Always truthful but as brief as you can." Sage advice.

Once, when I introduced him to a young friend who was studying to be a lawyer I must have had a cynical tone in my voice because John just shook my friend's hand and said, "the world can always use another good one". I've never since disrespected that sentiment.

Personally, at one point he sensed that I was troubled and suggested a counselor. From anyone else I would have disregarded the advice, but, he opened up to me about some things that let me know I should do as he suggested. He didn't have to, he just cared enough to.

John, was our corporate counsel for many years. To his credit he kept us out of more trouble than I can count. But, when there was trouble to be had he took it personally and was the best to have on our side.

John Gabroy was one of the few people in my father's life that he respected and listened to. Believe me when I say that means something to our family. When John appeared at my father's memorial service almost 5 years ago I know it wasn't easy for him. When he spoke he was typically artful and impactful to my family.

He was, and always shall be, my friend.

Jane:
I am so sorry to hear of Johns death. My deepest sympathy to you,Nikki, Chris, Stefani and the whole family. There is nothing anyone can say to help. The hurt you all feel can only be lessened by the passage of time...and it will be.
John was a great lawyer and a great friend. I regret that we lost contact when we both left the County. I know he went on to bigger and better things, but my best memories practicing law are the years practicing with John.

Dear Gabroy Family,

I am very sorry to hear that John has passed. I worked with John and Stefani at the Pima County Attorney's Office starting in 1976. John was kind enough to accompany me to Florence for a hearing within a week or two after I passed the bar exam. John was a nice fellow who had an incisive legal mind. My condolences to his family and his many friends and colleagues. ❤

Condolences. Karen Brewer
