Community members turned out in droves to honor David John Riggs, a 20-year-old Tartan High School graduate who died Aug. 17 following a scooter crash in Oakdale days earlier.
Riggs’ girlfriend, Ciara Falzone, noted a vigil was held Aug. 19 outside of his family’s Oakdale home, where hundreds of community members came to pay their final respects.
“It was such an incredible outpouring of support,” Falzone said, adding that she and the Riggs family were immensely grateful for the entire community’s response following Riggs’ death.
