Memorials for Robert R. McClanahan

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.

Thank you.

2019 Golf Classic Rescheduled

Attention Golfers!

We’ve shifted the date of the 2019 Riley’s Warriors Golf Classic to June 3rd, still at The Country Club of Arkansas in Maumelle. Riley’s Mom was kind enough to point out that two of Riley’s siblings are graduating in May – one from High School, the other from College. We are very, very proud of them and don’t want any of their celebration to get lost in planning for a golf tournament.

We hope you’ll understand the need to push the tournament out a month. But we promise the same quality event as always. We’re excited about getting back on the course after laying out a year in 2018.

We’ll have registration info posted here very soon, so check back regularly.


Amazon Smile

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 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 and some non-profit will thank you.
