The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to stand in honor of Joe Williams, Jr., 61, who passed away recently. Joe was a United States Navy veteran who served our country, and we will be honored to join with PGR members from eastern KY and southern OH, as we stand for Joe during his final service on Monday, January 5th, at the Kentucky State Veteran’s Cemetery NE.

Due to the fact temperatures on Monday will be below freezing all day, it is likely some roads could be icy from precipitation on the previous day; cages would be the wisest choice for your mode of transportation. Those who wish to go to the funeral home for the start of the procession would need to be at the Johnson – Tiller Funeral Home, 10030 West Virginia Rt. 152, Wayne, WV no later than 0940; planned departure from the funeral home will be no-later-than 1000.

The rest of us will pick up the procession as it comes north on Rt 152, near the Speedway gas station located just south of Exit 8, I-64. We will “officially” escort from this interchange to the KY veteran’s cemetery. Staging information is as follows:

Staging time: 0945-1000; planned departure is 1015, so be fueled and ready to roll by then.

Staging location: Speedway, 2500 5th St Road, Huntington, WV (about 1/2 mile south of exit 8, on Rt 152)
