  • I wish I had been able to spend some time with Randy after I graduated from High School. (1976) Growing up in Green Camp I looked up to the Riley brothers, they were so good in Sports and such great athletes, remembering how they played baseball ⚾️ and Basketball 🏀 … they had fun and we enjoyed cheering them on as kids! My condolences to your family.

    Gods Blessings

  • I remember Randy (Just like his dad and brother) being a natural athlete in many different sports. Just about every Green Camp boy played some kind of sport at the Riley house with Randy and Jeff at one time or another. I can still picture Randy as he and his dad played golf together at Hickory Grove when he was a very young boy. His daughter Jenny, his mother Marilyn, his brother Jeff, and their families are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Randy and Jeff always let me hang out with them. They were like big brothers. Randy always had a smile on his face. He taught me about hunting, and trapping but mostly just to enjoy nature. My prayers to Aunt Marylin and all my cousins. God Bless you all.

  • I am deeply sorry for your loss. Randy was my best friend growing up in Green Camp. We spent many, many hours playing guitar, swimming, riding bikes, hunting, fishing, trapping and camping out. When we weren’t doing those things, we could be found sitting with the Schmidt girls on their front porch. Thank you for the memories Ol’ Buddy!

  • Grew up in Green Camp and played baseball with Randy. Later years would run into him in Waldo.
    Randy was always easy to talk to and good to interact with over the years. RIP Randy !
