I feel honored to have been one of the many patients of Dr. Riddle's. He was my doctor for 20 years. He had a heart of kindness, care, and compassion, He could be serious stern, and rigid,. He was a remarkble man of great character.
I am saddened to read of his passing but this is a man that I truly believe went through the portals of Heaven and is with God our Father.
May God Bless The Riddle Family.

Dr. C. Dayton Riddle, Jr.
Dr. Riddle was an excellent mentor, a staunch advocate, and a good friend to the many orthopedic residents during his tenure as program chairman and teaching attending. He kept us on our toes with keen intellect and verbal barbs. We shall all miss him. My condolences to his family and many friends. John McCord, former resident 1977-1982 and friend

He was both a friend and my boss for many years. The patient's wellbeing was always his first priority. He was funny, kind, caring, true, honest, smart, good physician..I could go on and on. He will be greatly missed. I am so sorry I was unable to attend the services to honor him and give support to the family.
