The family of Joseph Henry Paris, 81, has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to attend the military honors of their loved.  It will be our honor to do so.

Joseph served in the United States Army from to November 1958 to February 1962.  He was honorably discharged at the rank of SP4 E-4.  He also served in the United States Army Reserve until November 1964.

After military life, Joseph worked as a plumbing contractor for 50+ years.  Per his daughter, “He just loved to work.”  In his early years, he enjoyed family river trips.  He loved to ride his Harley and took many long road trips throughout the United States with his buddies.  He also had a passion for gambling.

Joseph is survived by his daughter, Shelley, and son, Timothy.  He is also survived by three grandchildren.

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance through the rain.”

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.
