Obituary

Kevin Scott Riley was born October 2, 1948 in Keokuk Iowa to the late Harley and June (Bode) Riley. He went to school in Keokuk Iowa until his family moved to Clinton Iowa the summer of 1965. Kevin graduated from Clinton High School in 1967. He graduated from The University of Iowa in 1971. He continued to finish a master’s degree from The Texas Christian University in Fort Worth Texas.

On August 30, 1969, Kevin married Patsy J Oesterborg at the United Church of Christ in Clinton, Iowa. They lived in Iowa City for two years and then began their 20-year journey in the United States Air Force; retiring from the Air Force at Dyess Air Force Base in June 1991. He then worked as Assistant Registrar at McMurry University for four years before going to a dispatch school in Arlington Texas. Kevin then worked for Bombardier’s Flex Jet division where he loved scheduling flights based on his weather predictions and many other parts.

Kevin was active in various churches, especially while his sons were growing up. He loved being a soccer coach for their teams, and he loved family vacations always full of plenty of joking. Kevin loved being a Grandfather to his five grandchildren.

The last several years, Kevin has enjoyed activities at the Carrollton Texas Senior Center. Especially the last two years while he was active on the advisory council. Kevin loved the chair volleyball practice and tournaments.

For many years, Kevin and Pat were active at The Colony Home Fellowship at Monte and Judy’s home. There are not enough words to express how precious these senior times have been.

    Kevin was my big brother when I spent a lovely exchange student year with his parents June and Harley Riley in Clinton Iowa. He and the wife Pat were already based in Sacramento where we travelled to spend the Christmas. I admired the blue electric lights in the Christmas tree since in 1971 we still had live candles in our tree in Finland. Kevin also gave us a sightseeing tour in the rainy San Francisco.
    Just five years ago my husband and I took a memory lane tour to Iowa where our guide again was Kevin. We paid a visit to the Keokuk cemetary where Kevin’s parents, my dear American parents June and Harley are burried. Kevin and Pat also served us a lovely dinner across the river in Keokuk. So many good memories…
    I know how much you Kevin were loved by your parents who were so proud of you. You were a man with a big heart. So glad we got to meet you and follow your life.
    Condolences to Kevin’s family. We miss him, too.
    With love
    Marketta and Pekka Sarahonka from Helsinki, Finland

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
