￼Robert R. “Buddy” McClanahan was Riley’s grandfather. Buddy passed away in his sleep on October 17, 2019, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 90 years old.
Few people know it, but Riley was named in honor of his grandfather. Riley’s full name is Robert Riley McClanahan, making him Robert R. McClanahan, as well, though they had different middle names. Riley will do his best to carry on his grandfather’s name.
Memorials for Buddy/RRM may be made via PayPal.
Buddy’s eulogy by his son is here.

You know, it seems that every time I turn around, another non-profit is asking me to choose them as my Amazon Smile charity – my kids’ school, my church, you name it.
Amazon Smile is a wonderful program where Amazon donates a half-percent of qualifying purchases to the non-profit of your choice. And Riley’s Warriors has been a beneficiary of the program. To date, we’ve received over $500 in contributions.
If you are not using Amazon Smile when you shop Amazon, then valuable dollars that could be supporting a cause you believe in are not being used. So, get signed up.
It’s simple: just go to smile.amazon.com and start shopping. The first time you go there, you’ll be asked to choose a non-profit to support. That’s where you type in R-I-L-E-Y-‘-S W-A-R-R-I-O-R-S. 😁 Actually, that’s where you search for some non-profit you care about: a school, a church, a ministry, whatever. If you happen to choose Riley’s Warriors, then we’ll be greatly appreciative.
Just remember to always start your Amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com and some non-profit will thank you.
We’ve set the date for the 2019 Riley’s Warriors Golf Classic! The event will be held on May 6th. Based on your input, we booked The Country Club of Arkansas in Maumelle (same location as 2017). So please go ahead and save the date in your calendars and make plans to join us!
