I have known John Millwood for most of my life. We went to school together in Dumas, Arkansas and lived in the same hometown. He was always a sweet, nice, friendly and loving person. To the family and friends, my heart goes out to you.

Met him at Shannon Baptist Church. Found out we were both from Dumas. He was a good man and I know a good dad. Just hard to believe. Prayers to all the family.
