Riley, Jack  
Jack Riley April 21, 1928 - April 12, 2015 Jack was born in Owensville, Indiana, the 11th of 12 children. His parents were William and Maude Tapley Riley. The Riley family was extraordinarily poor. They were a family of sharecroppers who lived in a small cabin and farmed watermelons, corn, and tomatoes for the landowner. They would also take their mule hitched to a wagon filled with produce to town to try to earn some extra wages for themselves. Although poor, they knew that their family was most valuable in life. When he was sixteen, Jack joined his brother, John, by moving to Oregon, where John recently settled after WWII. This was a great adventure for Jack. When he was 21, it was time to serve his country and Jack soon found himself in Korea. As a Sergeant First Class, Jack served as a combat infantry medic. During this time, he earned two Bronze Service Stars. Jack was an American patriot and hero. After Jack left Korea he was stationed at Madigan Army Hospital in Tacoma, Washington. While there, he was set up on a blind date with a young lady, Betty Luttig. Once discharged from the Army, Jack knew he would return to Oregon. To avoid Betty driving on Hwy 99 by herself to visit (as I-5 had yet to be built), on July 2, 1952, those crazy kids married after knowing each other three short months and then made the move to Oregon. They had two loving daughters, Diana (Miller) and Jacqueline (Stoner); grandchildren Kerrie (Derek), Kim (Matt), Matthew (Vicky), and Elizabeth; and great-grandchildren Savana, Mason, Riley and Blake. Jack's best friend and son-in-law is Col. John Stoner (Ret.). Jack also had many pups including Russell, Queenie and Rosie. Everyone loved these parents and grandparents dearly, and learned the lesson instilled in Jack so long ago, that family is most valuable in life. Beyond his family mentioned above, Jack had many nieces and nephews. Jack served his community as Commander of the local VFW Post 661 and became a lifetime member of the VFW and the American Legion Post 0009. He was also a successful business owner, and a supervisor for Salem Area Mass Transit District. Upon retirement, Jack and Betty enjoyed traveling across the country in their RV. Again, you never knew what these crazy kids would do. Jack recently became a member of the Catholic Church, which gave him extraordinary comfort in his final days. The family is forever grateful to Fr. Gary Zerr for his prayers and support. Visitation will be on Friday, April 17th from 1:00pm to 6:00pm at City View Funeral Home. Services will take place at St. Edward Catholic Church on Saturday, April 18 at 12:30pm followed by lunch at St. Edwards and interment with Military Honors at City View Cemetery. Arrangements are by City View Funeral Home.

Schmidt, Carl  
Carl G. Schmidt October 24, 1929 - April 4, 2015 The youngest of three boys including older brothers Paul and Otto, Carl was born on the family farm in Beavercreek, Oregon to George and Katherine Schmidt. German was spoken in the home and at church, so he learned English at school. A graduate of Oregon City High School, Carl went on to earn a bachelor of science in agriculture from Oregon State College. He served his country in the Korean War as an artillery forward observer and battery commander. Living in a dug-out bunker during the cold Korean winter fueled a lifelong appreciation for hot coffee. Following his return from Korea, Carl attended flight school in Texas. He was married to Joyce, his loving and devoted wife, for over 56 years. Their first date was the movie "Around the World in 80 Days," a prelude to many adventures travelling the world together. Carl had a 30+ year career with Oregon Highway Department in right of way as an appraiser, during which he put over 1,000,000 miles on state vehicles. Carl enjoyed gardening, reading historical fiction, traveling, hiking, collecting coins and stamps, managing his timberland, and spending time with his family and friends. For years, he tended a large vegetable garden, fruit and nut trees, and grapes. He read his lifetime subscription to National Geographic and Reader's Digest cover to cover. Their first of many cruises was through the Panama Canal. Carl and Joyce also enjoyed an African safari and family visits to Germany. Locally, his favorite places in Oregon were the family woods in Beavercreek, Black Butte Ranch, and Steens Mountain. He took enormous pride in his four grandchildren: Karl, Katy, Joshua, and Hannah. He will be missed by his wife, Joyce; children (Steven and Janet Schmidt, Glen and Ellen Schmidt, and Scott and Ruth Burk); four grandchildren, and many other relatives and friends. Services will be held at Trinity United Methodist Church on Saturday, April 18 at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Trinity Foundation or the Glenn Jackson Scholarship Program at the ODOT.
