PATRICK H. RILEY
 
It is with great sadness that the family of Patrick H Riley announce his passing on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at the age of 88.
 
Patrick will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 68 years, Barbara, and his children, Cindy Parsons (Jim), Kathy Riley, Dennis Riley (Trish), Leslie Hull (Tony), Patty Riley, Rick Riley (Leanne), Peggy Steppleman (David), Sharon Witz, Mike Riley, Bill Riley (Mary Jo), Jeff Riley (Lisa), Mary Johnston (Tim), Angie Marsh (Herb), Colleen Knutson. Patrick will also be fondly remembered by 30 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren, his brother Bill Riley (Anne) and sister in law Barbara Riley.
 
Patrick was pre-deceased by his parents Amos and Lillian Riley and his brother David Riley.
 
He attended St. Agnes grade school and St. Agnes High School and Rockhurst College.
 
His love for family and life speaks for itself. He was an Eagle Scout and achieved the rank of Warrior in the Mic O Say Tribe. He received his pilot license and flew a Cessna that contributed to the success in sales in his electrical engineering career.
 
He enjoyed playing the harmonica, playing a round of golf and a good cigar. In his retirement years he was a self-taught wood carver and found pleasure in sketching and coloring.
 
A celebration of Pat’s life will be held at 9:30 am on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Overland Park, Kansas. Followed by a funeral mass at 11:00 and burial immediately following at Resurrection Cemetery in Lenexa.
