Richard Leparmentier Funeral, Austin, TX

Recommended Posts

Star Garrison and the Central Texas Squad had the honor of being requested to stand guard as our friend and honorary 501st Legion member Richard Leparmentier was laid to rest in Austin, TX.  The service was filled with many anecdotes about a wonderful man's life, and there was more than one reference to Admiral Motti's experience with Lord Vader :).    At the end of the service our Garrison XO, William Tatsch, presented the family with an Imperial flag, and we escorted the family out.  Not very many pictures, but the nature of the event didn't lead to very many photo ops.  (All photos by  Topher Bradfield).

Brian (Jepson TK-42170) said something before he & I stood vigil: "I never met you, but you have been part of my life since I was 6 years old.". :)

It was an honor to stand next to the casket and hear the stories of a life well lived and a man well loved by his family and friends.
