GLENDALE -- All of us within the Coyotes organization are deeply saddened by the death of our former beat writer and good friend Jim Gintonio.

Jim passed away on Sunday after a brave fight with cancer.

Jim covered our team for The Arizona Republic from 2007 until 2012, when he retired after a long and successful career in journalism.

Jim was well respected and loved by many people connected to our team and by many people he worked alongside within the Phoenix sports media community and the NHL media community.

Scroll down to read just a few of the reactions to Jim's passing that have been posted on Twitter over the past two days. 

We also encourage you to visit Jim's Facebook page to read more messages from people who loved and admired Jim.
