John C. Conroy

May 3, 1977 - April 2, 2017

John Corey Conroy, 39, a lifelong resident of Lee County, FL passed away peacefully, due to complications arising from diabetes, on Sunday, April 2, 2017 in Cape Coral, FL. He was born May 3, 1977 in Fort Myers, FL.

John was an exceptional man. His interests included a passion for speed, he was a ‘built not bought guy” who enjoyed auto cross and drag racing, as well as target shooting, gaming, fishing, and all things related to technology, politics, economics and social issues. He was intellectually gifted, compassionate, revered for his workplace talents, loved by family and friends and a contributor to society.

According to his colleagues at Interop Technologies, where he worked, “John was nothing short of a genius. His ideas were always profoundly clever. He had a knack for finding ways to improve whatever he could get his hands on. He was unrelenting in his determination to uphold standards and best practices, and was not afraid to go toe-to-toe with you in debate. During his time as an engineer at Interop Technologies, not only did he bring about revolutionary change to the company’s core processes and procedures, but he also found the time to help and teach others along the way. The impact that he had on the company was so completely ubiquitous, that the void he leaves behind will be felt for years to come.” John was a rare gift to family and friends. He was taken too soon.

He is survived by his loving mother, Barbara Conroy-Gaiser (Donald) of North Fort Myers; loving father, John A. Conroy (Linda) of Zolfo Springs, FL; brother, Jay Conroy (Jenn Jolivet) of Dunedin, FL; stepsister and stepbrother, Diedra Dempsey and Darren Gaiser; stepbrother, Shannon Boswell and stepsisters, Jolie Wilson and Lori Lowers; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

A Memorial Service will be held 1:00 PM Saturday, April 15, 2017 at All Faiths Unitarian Church, 2756 McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers, FL 33901 with Reverend Wayne Robinson officiating.

In lieu of flowers we request donations be made to the American Diabetes Association, P.O. Box 15829, Arlington, VA 22215 in loving memory of John Corey Conroy.
