John Hackney was Foreperson pro tem of the 2006-2007 County of Los Angeles Civil Grand Jury when we met. During our year of service together I found him to be a natural leader - warmly compassionate, deeply intelligent and perpetually committed to improving our cities, our Los Angeles County, and our world.
A warm friend to all, his role of Mayor and his short wave radio expertise for Disaster Emergency operations and brilliant pen and ink art earned my additional respect.
Our warm gratitude and deep sympathy are with all of John’s friends and family, and most especially with John’s wife Mary, during this time of bereavement. Our friendship with John and Mary will always be treasured.
