The family of Lorin Joe Channell has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to be present to honor their hero for his service to his country.
It will be our privilege to do so.

Lorin passed away at the age of 75 of agent orange, he was 100% disabled.

Lorin joined the Army in 1966 & was honorably discharged in 1970. His rank at the time of discharge was Spec. E-5.

He served two tours in Vietnam. 1st in Pleiku during the Tet Offensive & the 2nd Time in Nha Trang.

After leaving the Army he went to work for the transportation dept. at 32nd. St. Naval Base. He retired from there.

His hobbies were just tinkering & fixing things.

He is survived by his wife Barbara and his son Lorin Channell II, his sister Gail Evans & a grandchild Jayden Channell.

The family is asking for the Patriot Guard to ride with them to Miramar National Cemetery, from the VFW in Lakeside.
