Obituary for Mr. Randolph S. Riley

January 29, 1940 - September 1, 2018
Salem, New Hampshire | Age 78

Loving Father, Husband, and Best Friend


Mr. Randolph Stewart (Poppy) Riley, age 78, passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 1, 2018 with his beloved family by his side. He will be remembered as a wonderful father, husband, and friend.

Randy truly lived life to its fullest. He did this through the simplest of pleasures: being with family and friends, laughing, kidding around, tinkering with his newest invention, fishing, or by just taking in every second of life's surroundings. He was an extraordinary man in that his beautiful mind could so effortlessly improve or reinvent anything his resourceful hands touched. His children were fortunate enough to imagine and dream his ideas and creations right alongside him throughout his life.

He loved nothing more than spending time with his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many friends. He led by example and instilled a strong work ethic and love of life and family in all of us. He encouraged us to accomplish our goals and dreams just as he had and to never give up even when met with inevitable adversity. He challenged our thoughts, strengths, weaknesses, and emotions at every turn. We thank him from the bottom of our hearts for everything he was and did because we are all stronger and wiser for it.

Randy was our much-loved father, protector, teacher, leader of the Riley Wrecking Crew, and our best friend. He will be missed but not gone or ever forgotten. The power of his GREAT love of family and friends will eternally rest in our hearts and our souls. We will honor him by going forward living our days the way he has given us license to live them while always feeling his GREAT love for each and every one of us day in and day out.

Private family services to be held.
