I worked with Johnny Ray, as I used to call him, every day for two years. He was a light for me during a dark time in my life. He always knew how to make me laugh and I loved his sense of humor. His smile and his laugh are forever engrained in my memory. He would frequently buy me and my coworker Veronica candy and he took care of us if we were alone for the day. I was deeply saddened to hear about his passing and my heart goes out to his wife Sandra and his "little buddy" as he called his grandson. I am thankful for the hope we have in Christ that I will one day share a strawberry milk with John again in heaven.

I will miss John so much. In the 10 years that I have worked for DMP, not a day went by that I didn’t talk and joke with this kind and caring man. May you rest in peace.

---------- Forwarded message --------- From: Rick Britton Date: Fri, Jun 14, 2024, 4:54 PM Subject: John Woods To: All Employees , All External Employees Dear All, It is with a heavy heart that I share with you all the passing of John Woods. John was a lead to the facilities team and a friend to many. He had been a member of the DMP team for nearly 14 years. John was someone that you could count on for a friendly smile and a helping hand. Those that worked closely with him would say that John put his whole heart into what he did. He passed unexpectedly last night, in his sleep. We ask you to keep Sandra, John’s wife, in your thoughts and prayers over the coming weeks. We will dearly miss John, but we can live in peace with the comfort from our hope in Christ. In times like this, we are reminded to cherish each moment with our co-workers and to continually give thanks for the opportunity to work together. Thank you for being a part of DMP. Rick

John was a ray of sunshine. He filled the hallways with cheerful greetings and bluegrass songs. He never acted inconvenienced by our needs or our messes. He created so much peace and truly cared about the people around him. He was so joyful and never had a bad thing to say. He loved his grandkids and Sandra so sweetly. I loved seeing how excited he would get to have his grandson over for a weekend. He will be missed here on earth, but I know he is having a wonderful time with the Lord and that he is trying all of the popsicles and ice cream in heaven.
