The family of Steven Martin Murray, age 74, has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to participate in their Hero’s final farewell. We are honored to fulfill this request.

Steven served his country as a member of the US Air Force from February of 1967 to February of 1971, having achieved the rank of Sergeant prior to his honorable discharge. During his enlistment his time was split between the Philippines and Travis AFB in Fairfield CA. His MOS was that of a Chaplains Assistant.

After his honorable discharge from the USAF he spent almost 50 years working as a Respiratory Therapist. He spent many years involved with the American Legion and was also a Free Mason.  He was a man of a lifetime of service to others, a man with a selfless heart.

Steven is survived by his daughter, Stephanie, his son Patrick and leaves behind his sister, Lois. He will be dearly missed and never forgotten by all those that knew him.

NOTE: This mission posting is to facilitate your voluntary participation in honoring this Military Veteran.

“One straw at a time”

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 Ride Captain (RC). 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. Observe the 15 MPH speed limit. Remember, cemeteries are hallowed ground. Show respect to all who are there, not just the ones we are honoring.
