    The family and the US Air Force have invited the Patriot Guard Riders to be present for the arrival and funeral services of their Hero, Major Stephen Del Bagno, 34. It will be our honor to do so.

Sadly, Maj Del Bagno tragically lost his life when the plane he was flying went down near Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada as he was training with the squadron on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.

    Maj Del Bagno is from Valencia, CA and grew up in the area, playing AYSO soccer and graduating from Saugus High School. He went on to college and graduated from Utah Valley State College in 2005. Prior to joining the Air Force he worked as a civilian flight instructor, corporate pilot, skywriter, and banner tow pilot.

    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.
