From Gary Mayers.
What a beautiful day to Honor one of our fallen Soldiers. Mr. Robert Laurence Sieck was laid to rest on Sunday, 30 October 2022 at the Charles F. Austin cemetery. Robert served as a Corpsman in the US Navy from 5/2/1963 to 5/1/1969 as he was deployed to Vietnam with the 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines combat unit on the front lines.

Mr. Sieck’s Daughter came over to greet us and thank us for being a part of her dad’s celebration of Life. She told us about her father and all the things that he did for the community and his Family. This mission started at the Harrell Funeral Home in Austin. Four Patriot Guard Riders assembled to Honor Mr. SiecK including one rider from San Antonio. LEO escorted the procession for a 20 minute ride to the cemetery. Upon arriving at the cemetery we dismounted and formed an honor line behind the hearse. With the casket moved from the hearse we followed behind the coffin to the resting site where we formed another honor line until the casket was put in place. There was a good show of family and friends. We quietly departed and ride captain thanked riders for attending and told them to have a save ride home.

RIP Robert Laurence Sieck. Thank you for your service to our Country.
