  4. We appreciate all the sincere condolences from brothers in arms that have posted here. Jack Fuller was a dedicated father to my wife of 48 years – not one that was the most out going man but one that loved and protected his family over the years. After his 4 years in the Air Force he worked at NAS Pensacola lending his expertise to the repair facility in support of military efforts in Vietnam – repairing aircraft damaged and returning them to service. He will be missed by his family of 5 children and his supportive wife of 68 plus years but never forgotten. God speed my friend and bless you and our family. It is my honor to ride and salute you as a true American Hero served our nation when needed.

  5. My sincere condolences to the Family and Friends of Jack Irwin Fuller.
    May surviving family and friends find strength in acknowledgement that you were willing to sacrifice all so that another might taste liberty and to do so, you stood courageously where only few dare tread.

  6. Thank you to the Patriot Guard for this honor. My father was a quite man who was never afraid to stand his ground, always there for our family, always ready to lend a helping hand to family, friends and neighbors in need without request. I remember as a small child proudly wearing some of his Air Force insignia patches on my jacket, it was my favorite & prized possession. He loved his family, always tried to raised his kids in the correct “way they should go”. His grand kids and great grand kids were his most loved possessions, they brought him so much joy and happiness. My father would be quietly thrilled by this honor but so very humbled, also. Again thank you and God Bless

  7. My sincerest thank you to the Patriot Guard Riders for the honor you are showing my father. I know he would be very humbled and a little embarrassed but extremely proud to be honored in this manner. As my brother in law, Bill DeMattia, said my father served four years in the Air Force plus 25+ years in federal civil service at NAS Pensacola working at NARF, the Naval Aviation Rework Facility, he proudly served his country for many years. My father was a quite man who wasn’t afraid to stand his ground for God, family and country and raised his sons & daughters in the same to “walk in the way of the Lord” all their days. He loved my Mom and us kids and always did the best for us. As he was blessed with grandkids and later great grandkids who brought him so much love, joy, and happiness he “mellowed” into a loving, caring granddad Once again I thank all involved for this tremendous honor, May the Lord bless each one of you and bless your mission always.

  8. Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Jack Fuller. May the peaceful moments and  cherished memories bring you renewed strength in the days to come. Your faith will keep you  strong during this time of sorrow. Hero, you may stand down, we have the watch.

  9. Condolences from Washington, D.C. to SSgt Fuller’s family–we have the pleasure of working with SSgt Fuller’s tremendous granddaughter Melanie at our law firm Kilpatrick Townsend. And as a Marine, I’m especially glad SSgt Fuller and his family are receiving proper military honors at Barrancas National Cemetery. Semper Fi!

    1. My wife and I continue to be touched by the comments offered from brothers in arms. It is a heart warming experience to know veterans in this great country have stood and served together – and continue to show respect for fellow patriots, all is not forgotten when the uniform is put away. Being able to ride with the PG in honor of “Big Jack”, as known to his grandchildren, is an honor and I will have a rider with me, “Little Jack” grandson, coming up from Orlando with his family (MCPO Craig DeMattia) to be my co-pilot. Additional thanks to all family during this time of sorrow – especially Grand Daughter Melanie taking time to spend a month with grandma to help as needed. Josh thanks for the support.
