Gary Alan Agron died peacefully surrounded by the love of his children on Friday, January 27, 2023.
Gary was born on December 21, 1944 in St. Joseph, Missouri, the only child of Ruth Bernstein Agron and J. Harry Agron. He moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1950, after spending a year and a half in Brooklyn, New York. Gary attended Tucson High School and spent a year at the University of Arizona. Gary transferred to and graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder where he earned both his undergraduate degree and his Juris Doctor (with highest honors). While in college, Gary was a proud member of the Phi Sigma Delta fraternity where he made friendships that stayed strong for the remainder of his lifetime. When Gary graduated from law school he initially joined a large law firm, but quickly realized that he was more cut out to be a solo practitioner and entrepreneur. Gary started his own law practice, initially doing all kinds of legal work, but later focused his practice on securities law. He was an invaluable and indispensable partner to his clients and an attorney with a brilliant mind and impeccable ethics.
Gary married Vicki Morris (Agron) with whom he had three children, Adam, Megan (Sherr) and Noah. He later married Janice Puder and gained a stepdaughter, Jennifer Frenkel, who he helped to raise as his own daughter. Gary had twelve grandchildren.
Gary lived life to the fullest and had no regrets. He was an avid runner, loved traveling the world, eating at great restaurants, and spending quality time with friends and family. Everyone who knew Gary loved and respected him. He leaves behind an unmatched legacy and will be dearly missed.
