Honor Mission
Daniel James Lyons, Veteran
Canton , Georgia – 05-20-20


The family of Daniel James Lyons has asked the Patriot Guard Riders to stand and escort their hero to his final rest, and it will be our honor to do so. Lt. (T) Lyons served in the USAF during the Korean Conflict but did not serve in country as his expertise was needed stateside. He used his engineering degree to serve two years at Wright Patterson AFB, OH to assist with the conflict effort.

Staging Time: 12:00 pm

Darby Funeral Home
480 East Main Street
Canton , Georgia 30114

Ride Captain:

Clete Simpson

Special Instructions:

This will be a funeral home flag line and cemetery escort mission for our hero. Park on the front right side to prepare for the escort. After a briefing we will stand a socially distanced silent flag line beginning approximately 12:15 PM. We will then stand down until after the 1:00 PM service. We will present honors as our hero is transferred to the hearse. If military honors are presented, we will form up and present honors then as well. At approximately 2:00 PM we will depart in escort to the Georgia National Cemetery. Upon arrival at the entrance traffic circle we will circle back, dismount, and present honors to the arriving hearse and procession. Since we are not yet allowed into the cemetery as a group, we will then depart. If you desire to wear a mask, please do so. Please bring one just in case it is needed. At this time we do not plan on honors inside the funeral home, but that could change.
Flags & Water:
Flags will be provided
If you have large bike flags, please bring them.
Water will be provided.
