He was also an avid reader and enjoyed working the daily crossword puzzles. Most recently, he had developed a passion for being the very best "Pop - Pop" to his grandchildren.

Mr. Riffe received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Bluefield State University, Bluefield, WV, a Masters in Management and Supervision from Frostburg State College, Frostburg, MD, and completed post graduate work at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA.
