Obituary

Paul “P.R.” Ray Riley, 76, of Forest, passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, January 16, 2023.  Born in Veedersburg on June 18, 1946, Paul was the son of Franklin and Geraldine “Vera” (Abernathy) Riley. 

After graduating high school, Paul served in the Army Air Force.  He worked as a journeyman tool & die maker at Tenneco (Federal Mogul) in Frankfort for 37 years. 

He married Paula Martin on June 28, 1984.  Paul was a generous and handy man and was willing to help anyone he could.  He never met a stranger.  He enjoyed listening to old classic country music and karaoke, going to dances and events, spending time at the VFW and loved his family dearly. 

Surviving Paul are his wife, Paula; their children, Julie (David) Pilkey and Pat (Stacy) Riley; grandchildren, Kristen (William) Robinson, Jordyn Kessler, Ashley (David) Lemelin, Taylor Riley, Nick Cook, Nathan Cook, and Sarah Pilkey; eight great-grandchildren; and sisters, Peggy Davis, Kay (Erick) Mann, Sylvia Prichard and Beverly VanSickle.
