Chaplain Mike Hardee FBINAA, January 11, 2022 I am so sorry i missed the service, I did not hear about John's passing or the service until the next week. John was such a good man, calm and kind. I was a dispatcher at the Police Department but did not know him well until he and I started carpooling to casino parties when he was dealing. He spoke highly of his family. I will miss him and I'm sorry i have not kept in touch better. My thoughts and prayers are with you, family, as you find your way through this difficult time. Susan Archer Susan Archer, August 3, 2021 Rest in peace Capt. Brockman. It was an Honor and a pleasure serving under your command and leadership for so many years. You will always be remembered for you kind spirit, your dedication to our officers and the community and your professionalism. Job well done Sir. Brian Yeager #1149, July 18, 2021 My memories of my Uncle John start when Kimmy and I were young and Marla and John would take us to different parks to play for the day. I remember John teaching me to play piano in his living room. I always looked up to John in his expertise of many things and his service as a police officer. John is no doubt a reason that I have spent my last 20 years in law enforcement. Even into the past few years, I was still learning from John. On one of his visits to Colorado, he gave me a brief introduction into playing Craps, as he knew I enjoyed visiting Las Vegas. Today, it's our (Alfredo and I) favorite Vegas game. Marla and Jennifer, you are in our hearts and prayers. We love you. Kelly and Alfredo Kelly Huber Hernandez, July 17, 2021 It is my hope and prayer that the family will find peace and comfort as they try to deal with the loss. I pray for them. Captain Brockman was a Good and fair man. In the 22 years that we worked together at Plano I had very few moments of disagreement with him. In a tuff profession were strong beliefs and conviction often clash, we often found common ground. May God Bless and welcome him home. Jon J Mark, July 16, 2021 Marla and family, you indeed are blessed to have had Johnny in your lives. I know you will miss him tremendously. I know he was an outstanding husband, father, grandfather, co-worker and friend. I appreciate the many ways he used his gifts and talents in school and in the community. I observed and experienced his kindness to all who knew him. He was committed to the causes of his heart. I am glad to call him friend and to have gotten to work with him for class events in the last few years. sue monroe Monroe, July 16, 2021 Captain Brockman was one of the finest Command Officers I worked for. He made everyone better who served with him. Rest In Peace Sir. A.D. Paul, July 15, 2021 John was a mentor, friend and a man to be respected, his positive influence in our lives will be missed. May your faith, family and friends provide you with support, peace and comfort. Harry Manning, July 14, 2021 I have known you over 30 years and we had some great times. I will never forget the running events we did and the good advice during my career. You were a kind and decent man. God bless your family. Stan, July 13, 2021 I worked at PPD from 1983 until 1997. Capt. Brockman was one of the nicest people I have ever worked with or for. He often joined us for lunch and while he was a typically quiet man, could made us all laugh. Prayers for his family both blood and blue. Sandra Collins, July 13, 2021 I worked with John at the Plano Police Department for 30 years. There was not a more honorable person. He was a great officer, supervisor, teacher and friend. It was heartbreaking to hear of his illness and passing. He will be missed. May peace be with his family. JC Randall, July 13, 2021 I am saddened to hear of John’s passing. I worked for the City of Plano and got to know John when he worked in the Police Dept. He was a great human being : kind, considerate, compassionate, and friendly to all. A gentle, respected man. He will be missed by all.
