About the Mission:

The family of Patrick J. Ryan has requested Patriot Guard Riders participation in his military honors funeral services. Patrick, 69, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by family Sunday, October 9, 2022.

Patrick was born in Albany, NY and proudly served in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War. He enjoyed bowling, and listening to his favorite Irish bands. Patrick also was an active member of the American Legion for 31 years and the Limricks for 54 years. However, most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and making people laugh.
