In Memoriam of John "Dusty" Woodgate (1939-2018)

We start the year on a sad note as we say goodbye to the Legion's oldest active member, John "Dusty" Woodgate (ID-2139), who passed away on January 1, 2018. Dusty joined the 501st in July of 2007 and had attended over 140 events during his time with his home unit, the Alpine Garrison. Dusty served as a Garrison armorer and was known for his scratch-built blasters (for which he never charged anyone more than $5). Originally from England, Dusty was a consummate gentleman who always had a smile, an upbeat remark, and an occasional charming wink for those who he came in contact with. Dusty was an absolute fixture at con booths, greeting patrons and espousing the tenets of the 501st. Dusty leaves us with many fond memories as he becomes one with the Force and continues his mission of goodwill across the galaxy and beyond.
