About the Mission:

The family of John D. Luongo, United States Marine Corps veteran, has requested the Patriot Guard Riders participation in his funeral services by standing for him during calling hours.  John, 66, passed away Christmas Eve.

Born in Syracuse, John was a lifelong resident of Lakeland. He was a US Marine Corps veteran who served from 1973 to 1979.  He worked in the maintenance department at New Process Gear for many years. John was the Sergeant at Arms of the Cicero American Legion, as well as a fellow Legion Rider.

John contracted COVID before Christmas, and unfortunately, did not make it back to us. John was as good a friend as you could ask for, and would give you the shirt off his back. Please stand with me to honor John's service to his country and to the Patriot Guard Riders, at his final farewell.
