My good friend and Co-Founder of the Kings River Regulators has crossed the River. Jim Riley was one of the best. He always had a smile, and was always first to give help where he could. All that know him will miss him. Goodbye my old friend.

I love his alias. Must have been a M.A.S.H. fan.

 

Rest in Peace

It's with a heavy heart I read this. I loved shooting, and visiting, with this fine man. He will be missed. May the Gods see you to your new home, pard.

Hawkeye was rock solid on his ethics, his relationships, his faith, and his patriotism.  One very fine cowboy and gentleman who never shyed away from the truth or turned away from a person needing help or encouragement.  He shared whatever he had willingly.  I will always feel blessed to have known him, and I hope we cross paths again in friendship someday.  Until then, thank you my good friend.  RIP

Long before Mash... James Fennimore Cooper wrote about his Frontier Scout Hero, Hawkeye. The Deer Slayer and The Last of the Mohicans were two of the most popular. I pretty sure that Jim took his name from there.

I first met Jim over thirty years ago, and have always considered him a good friend.  Whenever I could make it to a KRR shoot he'd be the first person I'd look for, and other times our paths crossed we'd always find time to catch up with each other.  More often than not there would be plenty of laughs shared, and some good-natured ribbing that'd leave me with a grin.  

 

There were some special times... and will always be remembered with smiles and warm feelings.  Jim and his family are in my thoughts and prayers. 

 

Gonna miss ya, Old Timer~!  :(
