David was the nephew of my late sister-in-law Vada Soots. As young children we spent a fair amount of time together. I had a crush on him as a young child because he was so nice. I am so sorry for the families loss, you have my sincere condolences. Sharon Chorrushi McQuiston

I'm absolultely broken hearted to hear of the passing of Mr. Riley. I will miss seeing him in his sporty yellow car, with his faithful companion, Chico, by his side. He was one in a million.
Rest easy, Mr Riley.
