Seth "XJ Fire" Stanton funeral.

A few members from and some from Colorado4X4.com showed up to pay respects today. It is sad Seth didn't have more years to wheel with us.

Here are a few members.


The family brought Seth's rig.




His friends parked it by us so it wouldn't be lonely.


This is what it is all about. This is what he died for.


The precession stretched for a mile or so behind us.


Thank you for your sacrifice. Rest in Peace Seth

Re: Seth "XJ Fire" Stanton funeral.

First I would like to say I'm glad that those that could make it were there today.

Second, I'd like to thank the Santon family for allowing us, a rag tag group of wheelers to pay out respects to Seth and his entire family.

I will admit to shedding more than a few tears at the church an the graveside service. A Twenty One Gun Salute and the playing of Taps never fails to twist my guts into a knot and force a tear from my eye.


Seeing the slideshow that was playing at the Church really affected my family and I. It was difficult to watch the happy memeories on display overhead while PFC Stanton's flag draped casket lay in front of us. The pictures could just as easily have been someone we knew. My son and daughter were deeply moved my the entire day and will always remeber this day and the American Hero that was laid to rest.

Sorry, folks, that's all for now.

I shed a tear or two dozen just from the pics. It really is a large and awesome family that has... squabbles and all. But a big family.

Re: Seth "XJ Fire" Stanton funeral.

I had never been to a military funeral before today. WOW. It was very intense. Very difficult to NOT shed a tear. I was completely blown away while we drove down I25 on route to the cemetary. I have never seen that many cars in a funeral procession before. I kept looking in the rear view mirror and never could I see the end. I was definitely proud to be a part of it all.

Rest in peace Seth.

Re: Seth "XJ Fire" Stanton funeral.

Thanx to all those who attended. I wish I could have added my Jeep to the line. Please let us know when a memorail trail clean-up is scheduled. With enough advance notice I would love to make the trip.
