It is an honor the family of Tommy H. Montiel invites the Patriot Guard Riders to participate in his funeral and military honors.

Tommy enlisted and served in the Army Reserves during the Korean War.

Tommy was a very caring person, always others before himself. He worked for the City of Los Angeles for 40 years as a heavy equipment operator and supervisor.

Tommy loved his wife of 70 years and family. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, baseball and football. His favorite hobby was making driftwood lamps.

Tommy is survived by his wife, Nancy; sons, Steve and Tommy; five grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Note: This notice is to facilitate your voluntary participation in honoring this military veteran. For those interested, and all PGR members are welcome.

You do not have to be a Veteran or a motorcycle rider to attend this mission. All PGR members are welcome. We encourage those who do not ride to attend in your car. If this will be your first mission go to the initial staging area and you will be briefed there by the R/C (Ride Captain). Dress for motorcycle riding or dress casually if you are driving a cage (car). Please feel free to attend any portion of this mission you can. Please ride/drive safely.

Please remember that our mission is to stand tall and silent, and with honor and respect for our Heroes. No talking, smoking, or cell phone use during the flag line or service. Please keep radios off and engine noise to a minimum. Remember, cemeteries are hallowed ground. Show respect to all who are there, not just the ones we are honoring.
