He was an active member of the Ryan's Glade Community and White United Methodist Church.
He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Shirley Ann (Steyer) Riley of Oakland; three daughters, Durenda Sheally and companion Shane Hart of Morgantown, WV, Denise Moon and husband Luther of Mt. Storm, WV, and Donnette Lewis and companion John Reams of Oakland; six grandchildren, Nicole Ferguson and companion Bo, Brooke Ferguson and companion Nick, Amber Stonesifer and husband Trevor, Justin Sheally, Jeremiah and Talon Lewis; nine great grandchildren, Hailey, Emma, Raelynn, Clayton, Annabella, Willa, Jenson, Alena and Karlee; three brothers, Dennis, Robert, and Reese Riley; as well as many other loved and cherished family members.
