    Confirmed Mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in the funeral and interment services for John Reyes Canava. Mr Canava served in the US Marine Corps from 1970 – 1973 including a tour in Vietnam. He left the Corps as a Corporal.

    More about his life can be read here:

    Date/Time: Thursday, 14 November 2019. Funeral begins at 11 am.

    Location: Goodnight Funeral Home, 209 Prof E Allen Powell Blvd, Bartlett, TX 76511. We will stage at the funeral home.
    Map link:

    9:50 – 10:20 am – Staging
    10:20 am – Briefing
    10:30 am – Flag line

    Wx: High 57 deg F, cloudy with occasional showers in the AM. Rain chance 60%.

    Notes: Please note there is a visitation prior to the funeral service. Friends and family will be arriving during our staging period. This is a flag line only at the funeral home and again at CTSVC in Killeen for the 1 pm interment service. Mr. Reyes was a motorcyclist and rode Harleys and Indians before he became ill. His niece would love a few bikes to accompany them from Bartlett to Killeen. At this time there is NOT a LEO escorted procession.

    Ride Captain: Keith Longacre,, (512) 751-8955
    Flag Wrangler: Nicki Campbell

    Please attend to honor this Marine's service and sacrifice for our country.


    In the midst of a cold mist, 8 patriots stood tall & silent as the family walked by stopping to thank each of us personally for honoring their Marine in such a special way. As always, it is our honor to be there & we truly appreciate being invited.
    A great big thanks to Nicki & Soup who came all the way from Spicewood to supply flags for us.
    With the FD advising that it would be hard keeping everyone together in the procession w/o LEOs & considering the weather, escort was cancelled.
