SFC Ron "PacMan" Decker, 69, US Army, Retired, Vietnam Veteran, CenTex PGR Senior Ride Captain, of Killeen, TX

The family of Sergeant First Class Ron "PacMan" Decker has requested the presence and participation of the Patriot Guard Riders at the Funeral and Committal Services of their Loved One.

PacMan served twenty two years in the US Army, retiring as a Sergeant First Class. He then worked for and retired from the United Postal Service. PacMan was a member of the CenTex Patriot Guard Riders since the early days of the CenTex region, and became the Senior Ride Captain for Central Texas until he went on to be with his wife Kat and his other friends that have passed. His devotion to the Patriot Guard Riders was awesome to behold; he did thousands of missions, and put thousands of miles on his blue Goldwing so he could stand the flagline at missions across our region, and was a great member of the Patriot Guard Rider Texas family. He was involved in many organizations and events around the area, including the Goldwing Riders - Chapter T group.
