Doug Riley '82


Doug Riley has made a full recovery from the brain surgery he had in 2020 to correct an arteriovenous malformation. Doug brought his wife, Choya, to the reunion, and she was absolutely charming. Doug provided the music that accompanied the reunion slide show. As an aside, Tom Waxter and I did note a preponderance of Wells Obrecht images in that slide show. Doug was kind enough to grant my one musical request: “Dazz” by Brick in honor of our friend Chuck Wilder (it was Chuck who introduced me to that song in 1976!). In return, I introduced Doug to “Jugg King” by Young Scooter and “Show Da World” by L’il Boosie. Doug and Tim Robinson were a bit shocked at my current musical tastes. After the reunion, Doug sent me the following: “I am coming up on my fifth-year wedding anniversary to Choya Riley. Tim Robinson was the best man at my wedding. I have a 32-year-old stepdaughter who just started working at a YMCA in Baltimore. I am still playing electric bass guitar and loving it, and am trying to master golf although I know that may not be possible. Workwise, I am still doing front-end software development and backend database design (C#.Net and T-SQL).”
