His Final Ride

Ron Pfanz knew he was dying. One of his last requests was asked of his son Chad... that after he died, would Chad drive him on his flatbed semi trailer from the church to the cemetery. Ron himself, was a retired truck driver himself.

On August 6th, his request was granted. Chad Pfanz and his brother Darrin drove their father to his final resting place.
