Paul (Randy) Riskus left the arms of his loving family to the awaiting arms of his heavenly family on August 12th at the Earl B. Hadlow Community Hospice Center in Jacksonville, after a five month courageous battle with cancer. Paul was born on May 23, 1953 and grew up in Pittsburgh where he was a student and altar boy at St. Wendelin’s Catholic Church and School and later attended Baldwin High School. He made St. Augustine his home in 1985, where he especially enjoyed fishing the saltwater flats near Vilano Beach, Crescent Beach and Matanzas Inlet. Paul was the most passionate and vocal of Steelers fans, a self-accomplished chef and a gifted gardener, spending countless hours nurturing the magnificent flowers, trees and plants around his home. Paul was a loyal husband and father and will always be remembered for his playful sense of humor, for his exuberant and generous heart, and for being the first to arrive on the scene for his many friends and family when they were in most need.
