    Courtney and family, I am so sorry for your loss, especially during this time when you cannot gather to celebrate and mourn together. My prayers are with you for comfort.

    I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your husband and father. Have known Riley since we purchased our first Volvo 32 years ago and he was always my “go to man” for all of them when needing service. Last time we spoke he had retired, I was asking him what I should look for in purchasing a used C70 convertible, really appreciate his insight and thoughtfulness when we spoke. I’ll always remember Riley as the best Volvo mechanic ever.

    I’m sorry to hear about the loss of Riley. Met him 32 years ago when my wife and I purchased our first Volvo and he performed service on it. From then on Riley was always my “go to man” for service with our cars. Our last conversation was after he had retired and I was inquiring from him what to look for when purchasing a used C70 convertible. His insight and thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated. I’m very glad we had that conversation. I will always remember Riley as the finest Volvo Master Mechanic.
