We’re sad to report the passing of Michaelia’s dad, Jack Riley. Mr. Jack, as he was well known as, died last Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at the age of 81. He lived in Long Beach Mississippi with his wife Violet (Mick’s mom). Mr Jack received a Bronze Star for his service during World War II. He also fought in the Korean War and the battles in Okinawa and Iwo Jima. He led a full and varied life. He owned several restaurants and pawn shops as well as doing some traveling with the circus during his life. He has a very nice and lengthy obituary here. Mr. Riley was buried in Biloxi National Cemetery in Biloxi Mississippi on Monday.
Our condolences to Michaelia and her family during this time.
