Bruno A. Zimmer, 91, USA, Korea, RNC/Riverside - 29 OCT 21
« on: October 27, 2021, 03:12:38 AM »
The family of Bruno Alvin Zimmer, age 91, has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to be there for their Hero on the day he is laid to rest, it will be our honor to do so.

Bruno Zimmer enlisted in the US Army on June 5, 1951 and was honorably discharged on January 4, 1957.  At the time of his discharge, he was a Private First Class.  He served in the Korean War and was stationed in Okinawa, Japan.

Among his hobbies, Bruno loved dancing, oil painting, gardening, and he was a wonderful storyteller.  He is survived by his ex-wife Ermina, sister Alice, sons Jeff and Ken, daughter-in-law Rosa, and grandchildren Samantha and Eric.

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 participate in your car. If this is your first mission, go to the initial staging area, and you will be briefed 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.

Remember that our mission is to stand tall and silent 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.
