From Patriot Guard Riders:
19 Mar 2010 3:31 PM
Penelope Cavallo of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho has requested the presence of
the Patriot Guard Riders at Riverside National Cemetery (RNC) for a
Memorial Service for her father, Leroy F. Brown. Leroy known to his
close friends as “Brownie” was 100 yrs old at his passing this past
December. He was a widower, his wife having passed the prior March.

Mr. Brown served in the Army Air Corps (AAC) and continued on when it
became the U.S. Air Force. Mr. Brown was an E-7 and served 26yrs. He
was in both WWII and the Korean War.  Leroy and his crew were
specifically requested and worked on all of famed fighter pilot Pappy
Boyington’s aircraft in the Pacific during the war. A flyover of P-34
aircraft has also been arranged by the family for this service.

He is survived by his daughters Penelope and Ellen, and his Grandsons
Michael and Travis. All will be attending the Memorial Service. The delay
between Mr. Brown’s passing and his Memorial Service was the result
of having to wait for both Grandson’s current tours in Afghanistan to
be completed so that they could attend their Grandfather’s service as
he was very proud of them both and their service to their country.
