Thank you again. Since the show’s first episode, Ice Road Truckers has had a steady and growing following. 2 Hugh Rowland.

Tom was a humble guy who served his country in Vietnam, did his best for his family and friends. It was on 07 December 2018. We arrived at the church to find flags and an honor team that would have made our son so proud. Joseph “Mike” Romero (USMC)”.

The PGR flag line was a site to behold and we all felt humbled by the line of American flags and the beautiful Men and Women who stood by them.

As Don grew older his body grew frail but his “patriotic bone” only grew stronger. He is married to a woman named Dianne Rowland. As I may have mentioned, I’ve been honored to ride more than a few missions with the PGR since I joined in 2007, but this one was special as the Hero being escorted was my mentor as a young man.Ray (T-Bone), Greywolf, and all who showed up (we rode with 7 and a trailing cage) were considerate and thoughtful in word and deed. The time and thought that was given into placing each of those flags with care was not over-looked by the grateful family as we pulled up just behind the hearse and watched as the Navy unloaded the titanium hearse out of the rear of the car. But the Patriot Guard was there. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!! Thank you SO much for enhancing my father-in-law’s funeral with such solemnity, and yet, well, fun! While Hugh had never dreamt of being a truck driver, he fell in love with it since his first drive.
