Riley Egan

March 8, 1995 – January 10, 2022

The hearts of Riley Egan’s family and friends are forever broken due to his unexpected death. Riley was a beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, who had the biggest heart imaginable.  We were only able to enjoy 26 years of his kind and gentle soul that touched everyone around him. Riley loved to travel and spend time with family. He was proud of his Irish heritage, and his favorite color was green. Whatever you are wearing on Saturday, please add some green to honor Riley’s memory.

Riley’s family includes his mother, Theresa Egan (Gary Strain); his father, Patrick Egan (Angela Dzik); his brother, Blake Egan; his stepsiblings, Miranda McCullough (Dan), Ryan Strain (Suzie), Stacey Strain (Kyle Verbout), Sam Gottfredsen (deceased), Zach Gottfredsen, Kiera Gottfredsen and Sarah Gottfredsen; his grandparents, Germain (deceased) and Judith Carlson, William Egan Sr. (MaryJo) and Patricia Dunne (deceased); his aunts and uncles, Christopher Carlson (Brenda), Julie Whittington (David Gagne), William Egan Jr. (deceased), Roxanne Egan (deceased) and Robert Egan (deceased); also his 14 cousins.
