Brian Edward Riley, our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend passed away at his home in Lehi, Utah, on August 26, 2023. He was born on February 3, 1965, in Tiffin, Ohio, to Michael Riley and Sharon Heminger.
Brian became a father with his first wife to his three wonderful children; Mager (Ashley) Riley, Browning Riley, Zeph Riley, and later divorced. He then met and married his sweetheart, Oksana, and together they were blessed with two children: Yiaroslav Riley and Daryna Riley. Brian was a proud grandfather to his only granddaughter: Avery.
Brian was a skilled Master Electrician and worked at many different job locations through the years. Most recently, he was a member of the union IBEW354. He was an avid hunter and had a large collection of hunting trophies and guns. He had a keen eye for shooting things from far distances! Traveling was another passion of his – especially to the different European countries. Brian spent most of his time taking care of others and making sure their needs were met before any of his own. He loved with his whole heart and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
