Looking for a Pfc. Stanley Riffe

Hello,
I am attempting to write a book for my grandfather, R. Shirey, for his 90th birthday. Stanley Riffe was his best friend in the war, and to better tell my grandfather's story, I would like to talk to him. The only info on Stanley Riffe I can find is in the 310th regiment book. He came from Bownemont, W. Va and was in HQ co., which is all I know. I can't find his phone number online, so any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you for you're consideration.
