Gov. Jan Brewer made a statement on the passing of Arizona Public Service President Don Robinson today:
"Arizona has lost one of its true leaders of business and community: Don Robinson. As Arizona grew and modernized in recent decades, Don was at the forefront through his work at Arizona Public Service. Thanks in part to his efforts, APS has become one of the nation's premier utilities – providing safe and secure power to more than 1 million Arizonans.
"Of course, Don was more than just an exceptional businessman. He was an admired colleague; a husband, father and grandfather; and a dear friend to those lucky enough to have known him. Though Don has passed, his legacy and service to Arizona won't be forgotten.
"I ask that Arizonans please join me in extending our deepest prayers and sympathies to his loved ones."
