(Honolulu, Hawaiʻi –September 25, 2014) – “It is with profound sadness that we say ‘Aloha’ to our partner, John R. Lacy, who has passed away,” said Peter T. Kashiwa, Managing Partner.

Mr. Lacy joined the firm in 1973 soon after serving in the U.S. Air Force and then attending law school at the University of California, Hastings College of Law.

Senior Partner David J. Reber said, “John was incredibly loyal to the firm and a magnificent lawyer and mentor to us all.  We will all miss, deeply, his wisdom and guidance and his warm smile and gentle spirit.”

Mr. Lacy died at his home in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi on September 22, 2014 with his wife Elizabeth Lacy at his side. Private services are to be held.
