White Still Remembered by His Work

A City of Dothan Public Works Director was killed last month.

Johnny White was working on a sign in Cowarts when Tammy Melinda Devane hit him.

White later died at the scene and Devane since has been charged with manslaughter after police concluded it was a “reckless act”.

Through the tragedy, pieces of White's work will be seen around Dothan during one of the more popular events of the year.

Officials say one month before his death, White created the design for 50 trail signs that'll point drivers in the right direction to the Azalea Dogwood Trail.

Since White's death, his supervisor says they haven't been able to find another worker like him.

“He just enjoyed doing it. He'd mumble and groan about it, but then you look at him and he'd be in there trying to figure out a way to your sign made for you” said Earl Hatcher, City of Dothan Utilities.

The trail which celebrates the beauty of spring in Dothan’s historic district will be held this Sunday March 26th.
