He was a son of the late Clarence and Hazel Riley, of Halifax Dad worked for many years as Manager of Dominion Stores and later over 40 years for A.G. Brown & Son Ltd. An epic BBQ'er, dad enjoyed his seasonal camper on Grand Lake with his wife Anna and their many friends at the campground. As well, he and Anna enjoyed trips to the Caribbean during the winter months to escape the cold. In his younger years, Dad loved to golf.

Dad is also survived by brother, Harold of Bedford; and sister, Frances of Hubley; as well as his best pal of over 50 years Al (Pat) of Hubley. Dad was predeceased by his wife of 45 years, Anna (Lafitte, nee Smith); his parents; daughter, Leslie Jane Riley; brothers, Wayne, and Junior; sisters, Shirley, and Dodo. We would like to thank the many health care professionals who were part of Dad's care and comfort over the past 18 months and in his final days; the nurses and doctors of Dartmouth General Hospital 3 East, the Palliative & Therapeutic Harmonization Clinic, VON, Continuing Care and the entire staff of Bissett Court Long Term Care which was Dad's home for over a year.
