  1. Ron was my boss in Honolulu. A great guy to work with and for. We worked hard and enjoyed a few beers together. My sincerest condolences to the family.

  2. We worked together at the Agana, Guam sub-office in the very early 80’s. One day, shortly after meeting him, I walkd by his office and observed that he had an open A-file on his desk and was just then cutting up a green card with a large set of shears. As he looked to see me he very subtely said, “Immigration giveth, and Immigration taketh away.” As always, with a warm and tender smile.

  3. I pray that all of the favorable words that have been left by Rons prior working agents can provide some level of comfort to the Woodyard family. I was proud to consider Ron a friend during the period he was with INS in Denver.

  4. Rest in peace, Ron. Your friendship in Denver and in Hawaii make up some of the fondest memories of my career with DOJ. You were a gentleman and one of the best agents with whom I had the pleasure of working. God bless you.

  5. I am very sad For the loss of Ron and Nathan. Ron was a great investigator and I learned more from him than from any other agent.
    I have prayed for him for many years. Now I pray that he will rest in peace

  6. Ron Woodyard was a great man who had a very strong and positive influence on my life and career when I was a young agent trying to conquer the world. God brought him into my life for many reasons and in good health and bad Ron contributed to my career, life and survival. Thank you brother. Rest!

  7. My sincere condolences to the Woodyard family and my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I was Ron’s secretary while at INS Dallas District Office and he was a wonderful person and supervisor.

    Let there be comfort in knowing that someone special will never be forgotten and may your memories give you strength.

    Be Blessed

  10. To the Woodyard Family,

    I was truly sadden to hear of Ron’s passing today, July 18, 2011.

    I worked with Ron at the DAL District Office from 1986-1990. We stayed in contact on various occasions, but lost contact after his illness. I will miss his conversations we use to have. May God be with you always. Psalm 23:4

  11. Mrs. Woodyard,
    I just learned of Nathan’s and Ron’s passing this weekend. I am so sorry for your loss. I work at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Dallas and I met Ron years ago working on a drug case he brought to our office. I met Nathan, when he was an adorable blonde haired pre-schooler. Ron lived for Nathan. Over the years I’ve often had Ron and Nathan in my prayers. I pray now that Ron has finally found peace. And I thank the Lord for the time Nathan was in our lives as “our angel unaware”.

  12. What to say, I was stationed with Ron at the Dallas, TX INS office until I transferred out in 1989. Ron was a good man with whom to work. I’ll always have good memories of working with him and feel a loss at his passing so young. Vaya con Dios, amigo!

  13. I worked with Ron in the DAL district office as A CI, SA & retired (1997) as SSA in OCDETF. Never had a bad word to say or even heard on. I know he will be missed by family and friends. So sorry for your loss.

  14. I am saddened by the loss of Ron. We were friends at Freed Jr HS and Centennial HS. I have only fond memories of him and can only say in condolence: The Pain of Loss is the Proof of Love.

  15. Pearl and Wayne, I am so very sorry to learn of Ronnie’s passing. I am praying that the Good Lord comforts you in His love, and that you are filled with the joyful memories of Ronnie’s life. God Bless you. Love Donna Mae

  16. Dear Woodyard Family:

    I am so terribly sorry to have learned these sad news about Ron. He and I were very close friends and co-workers in Dallas. After he left Texas, I communicated with Ron on occasion over the phone. Regardless of his delicate condition, it was always a joy to speak with him…. He was my friend. A true, true friend indeed. I will miss him terribly. But deep in my heart, I know that he is with God, and that he is no longer suffering; that in fact, he is once again that wonderful, intelligent, lucid and kind man I was fortunate to call my friend…. I will forever keep Ron and all of you in my daily prayers; that someday God may grant us eternal life and the opportunity to reunite with Ron and all our beloved departed. Please accept my most sincere condolences.

    Yours truly,
