About the Mission:

Patriot Guard Riders has been requested by the family of Terry M. LeMere to participate in his military honors funeral services. Terry, 87, passed on December 22, 2022.

Terry attended high school in Lackawanna, NY, and entered the US Army on 23 February 1954.  He spent two years on active duty on assignments at Fort Dix, NJ and 14 months of overseas duty in Argentia, Newfoundland and later maintained marine diesel engines on the St. Lawrence Seaway. He was honorably discharged at the rank of Specialist 3rd Class, and for his service was awarded the US Army Good Conduct Medal and the National Defense Service Medal.  

Terry lived his life working on and restoring cars as a mechanic, starting at a young age in his father’s garage called “Kozy’s Service” in Buffalo, NY. This skillset turned into a lifelong and influential career as an auto mechanics teacher at Saratoga Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) for over 35 years.
