Frank Eugene Riley of Prescott Valley, AZ, passed away on December 5, 2011.

Frank was born in Watertown, South Dakota on July 15, 1920 to Frank T. & Mabel (Nellis) Riley.

Frank was loved by all who knew him. Frank was a terrific harmonica player and was always the life of the party with his love and compassion to everyone he met.

Frank served honorably in the U.S.N.R. from 1944-1946 as an aviator, flying on bomber runs aboard the P.B. 4Y2 B-24 Bomber. He was in different professional occupations, such as architecture designs and traveled throughout the east coast as a consultant for the Sears Company.

In 1993, Frank married Iris A. Barden and they shared a wonderful 17 1/2 years together. Both Frank and Iris were strong believers of Jesus Christ and shared this with everyone they knew.

Frank is survived by his wife Iris, children, Karen and Brad, and a grandson, Johnny. He will be deeply missed, but not forgotten. There will be no public services.

Cremation will take place at the Bradshaw Crematory in Prescott Valley, and his cremated remains will be place into a niche at the Prescott National Cemetery.

Arangemenets were made at the Arizona Bradshaw Wakelin Chapel in Prescott Valley.
