Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Irish. Know he was a good man and devoted brother of the Warrior's Watch Riders. He left an imprint on all the lives he touched.

Rest in Peace, Irish. You were a special friend and we will always have special memories of the missions we shared. I guess one that really comes to mind is Thanksgiving Day, a Welcome Home that ran very late, and the surprise turkey dinner in the van. I don't think there was a time we did not see one another that we did not laugh over that one. You will be missed my friend, but never forgotten.

Ride in Peace with JonD, Deb, DJ (The Crow) and all your brothers and sisters of the WWR.


Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you: 1. Jesus Christ. 2. The American G.I. One died for your soul, the other for your Freedom.

You and I will meet again,
When we're least expecting it,
One day in some far off place,
I will recognize your face,
I won't say goodbye my friend,
For you and I will meet again.

Ride in Peace my Brother Irish, Ride in Peace.

Now go shake hands with Mike.  Play a scam on Big Jon. Grab a hug from Deb (tell her to leave her shirt on).  Then go stand your place, that you richly deserve, in that flagline of honor at Heaven's Gate.

To the family of our Brother Irish: I am so sorry for your loss.

I COULD NOT HAVE SAID IT ANY BETTER.

I'm sad for his family and friends.  However, I just can't get this smile off my face everytime I think of him.  He is one of a kind.  I have many fond memories of him and for me this is how I'm handling it.

Irish is a true loss to our worldly planet. In some long talks with him, I learned he was a tough 'ol son of a gun with a heart of gold. RIP (Ride in Peace) my friend, you will be missed.

Irish, I never had the nerve to call you Billy, but I am proud to have called you my friend. As I remember, on each ride you would claim ‘Tail Gunner’ and everyone allowed you that position. On this mission I will ‘Tail Gun’ you have done your job. Say hello to Jon D for me.

I met many WWR riders over a year ago now when I came to visit Jim and I do remember meeting Irish.

My thoughts and prayers are with him, his family and all of you, his WW family.  Jim would share his pics and Irish was in many of them.  He was quite the character and he definitely loved welcoming home our troops.

RIP Irish, I know you will be guiding & riding with our riders from up above, keeping them on a safe path and leading them to safty.

Our one and only JonD is establishing quite a flag line in Region 7.  Standing that line are the best of the best; he has Mike, My Beloved Deb, Bluesman, and Kat amongst others from across America.  I can clearly see Jon's impish grin as he welcomes Irish, who comes to stand the flagline for all eternity along with his "never ending" flask of Tullamore Dew.  Region 7 is now a better place!  Ride in peace Irish, ride in peace.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Yup, Region 7 will never be the same. Thanks for being a friend Irish! ride Hard, Rest in peace!


The Picture caption says:
HONOR: The difference between the good guys and the bad guys is whether they use human shields or they MAKE themselves human shields


Our soldiers give of themselves for the freedom that we enjoy, enabling us to sleep soundly at night. Showing my gratitude by suiting up and showing up is the least I Can do.  Thank you American Heros! .

Hi Irish... Just wanted to say hi and let you know we'll be thinking about you on St. Paddy's Day. Of course we'll tip one for you as well.

Miss you...

I'M SMILING RIGHT NOW.  REMEMBERING YOUR STORY
ABOUT STICKING YOUR HEAD IN THE GAS STATIONS
ICE BAG BOX SO THAT YOU COULD CATCH YOUR BREATH.
ALSO, WHEN YOU CUT A HOLE IN YOUR HELMET FACE
COVER, LARGE ENOUGH TO HOLD YOUR CIGARETTES.
ONLY YOU.
