Even though we didn't know each other well nor have
we seen each other in many years, I hope you rest in peace. I only knew you when I was a child but I remember you as
a caring and quiet grandpa.
I am sorry for your loss . You all are in my thoughts
Prayers for the family. I worked with Jr. at Tire and
rubber and knew Gary and Eddie. Eddie was like a little brother to me. Jr. also lived next to my parents in Newville
as a boy. So sad to hear of his passing.

I worked with Junior at Carlisle Tire & Rubber and
always enjoyed having Junior as a friend and co-worker.

Rest in peace, Charlie.
I remember Grandpa Riggleman as a compassionate and
caring family man with a stern sense of right and wrong. His devotion to family was never unnoticed, even at difficult times.
My fondest memory is Grandpa taking me to my first Orioles baseball game. He will be sadly missed.
