John Paul Gachina

1.22.51 – 12.27.15

in loving memory

On December 27, 2015 the landscape industry lost one of its pioneering icons. Gachina Landscape Management lost its leader and an amazing human being. John truly enriched the life of everyone and everything he touched. No words can adequately express our sadness of John’s death or the gratitude for his friendship and the opportunity to work along side of him. He leaves behind a strong company and organization of passionate employees that will honor his memory by dedicating themselves to continue the work and service he loved so much. He is missed and remains in our hearts; never to be forgotten. John founded Gachina Landscape in 1988 after a year-long world-round tour. What he accomplished in his short life was remarkable.

Gachina Landscape Management will remain a family-owned business under the continued leadership of the Gachina Landscape Management leadership team.

To the Gachina Family—

At this time of year, I look back and remember why I am grateful.

It is because of all the people in my life who support and encourage me.
It is because of you.

I am grateful that this amazing and diverse group of people found their way to this company. You are the reason why the leadership, the client relationships, the quality of service, the cooperation and engagement is second to none. You have many reasons to be proud.

We lead in the green industry.

I am thankful for your continuing support to our success.

Enjoy your time off with family and friends.

Take care,
Jackie
