To Johnnie Dee Lyons and Kathleen Hozza: My name is John R. Woodruff. I was born July 31, 1947 and was told my father was John Anderson, killed in August 1948 by my mother Bonnie Lee Womack Woodruff.

My father, my hero! I did not know him, but my mothers accounts
Kept him alive for me. He ended his watch on August 9,1948 and I was born January 28, 1949. I would love to find other friends or officers who knew my mother and father? As it happens Life magazine photographers
Captured the rescue and fatal fall of my father and featured the story in the August 23, 1948 issue. It is hard to see, but also quite compelling. If you remember or have other memories I would love to hear from you. In loving memory..Johnnie Anderson Lyons

Greetings, This is a personal quest for Deputy John Dodge ANDERSON 's family, so we may honor him for his bravery & sacrifice. His daughter wishes to visit his gravesite. My request is for a copy of his obituary. Our family adopted his infant daughter who was born in April 1948, just months before John's death. Thank you, Sincerely Kathleen Hozza
