Caltrans is saddened at the recent death of John H. Goodlet, Transportation Planner, after a battle with cancer. 

Goodlet began his career at District 7 in 2000.  In the short period of time he worked at Caltrans, he made many friends due to his positive attitude and great spirit of helpfulness and teamwork. 

Prior to his employment at Caltrans, Goodlet worked for the Department of Corrections.  A non-employment-related injury left him disabled and wheelchair-bound.  After his injury, Goodlet went back to college, became a Transportation Planner and began a whole new career at Caltrans, working in Transit Grants.  Much of his work involved partnerships with other agencies, such as Metro.  According to his co-workers, Caltrans' partner agencies thought very highly of him and his excellent work.

John Goodlet is missed very much by everyone who was very fortunate to have worked with and known him. 

Caltrans sends its sincere condolences to the Goodlet family.
