Roy Riley, 85, of Maceo, passed away on Sunday, March 19, 2023 at the Heartford House. He was born in Breckenridge County, Ky on February 11, 1938 to the late Dennis P. and Beulah R. Soper Riley. Roy was an over the road truck driver until he went to work for First Class Services until fully retiring. He was a member of Maceo Baptist Church.
Roy was a pillar to his community. He was the man that if it was broken, he could fix it. He also enjoyed helping anyone in need and never met a stranger. When the Lord called him home, his chariot must have been broken down and needed a good mechanic to fix it. He was preceded in death by a son, Willie H. Riley; brother, Ralph Riley; sisters, Effie Board and Shirley Basham.
Roy is survived by his children, Rachel (Ken) Dunaway and Paul Riley; grandchildren, Ian (Kelsay) Clark and Steven (Megan) Riley; 3 great grandchildren, Presley Clark, Grayson Riley and Nate Riley; two nieces that he loved dearly, Patty Riley Henning and Carlene Riley Kellems.
Services will be held at 1 pm on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 at Gibson & Son Funeral Home, Lewisport Chapel with burial following in Kelly Cemetery, Maceo. Roy’s family will be greeting friends on Wednesday at the funeral home from 9 am until service time. Expressions of sympathy may be made to the Heartford House.
