    ABOUT THE MISSION:
    The family of Robert E. “Bob” Plate I has requested Patriot Guard Rider participation in his military honors funeral services. Bob, 55, passed on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 at Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, NY.

    Born in Rockville Center, NY, Bob was a 1980 graduate of Auburn High. He earned an Associates Degree from Cayuga Community College, and joined the United States Air Force in 1984. After completing basic training at Lackland AFB, Bob went on to train as an Avionics Navigation Systems Specialist at Keesler AFB, where he completed training with honors. Bob was later assigned to the 380th Avionics Maintenance Squadron at Plattsburgh AFB, and was Honorably discharged in 1988 at the rank of Sergeant.

    Bob spent most of his life in Seneca Falls, and was employed by Xylem Inc. He was the Commander of the Kirk-Casey American Legion Post 366, a member, Historian and Ride Captain for the American Legion Riders Warner-Van Riper Post 435 in Waterloo, NY, and a member and Ride Captain in Region 2 with the Patriot Guard Riders of New York. Bob was a member of St. Patrick’s Church, a Union Steward for the United Steelworkers Union and an avid outdoorsman.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.
