Matthew Orren Riley, 32, of Clarksville, Tennessee, and formerly of North Baltimore passed away, with his wife at his side, on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at 11:11pm after a hard fought battle with colon cancer.
He was born on January 24, 1985 in Findlay, Ohio to Rick Riley and Brenda Young Stimmel. He married Amber Kimmich on October 5, 2007. Matthew is survived by his wife, Amber, and son Aiden, parents, Rick and Emily Riley and Brenda and Dan Stimmel, siblings, Dan and Tyler Stimmel and Kristina and Ethan Riley, maternal grandparents, Duane and Rhea Young, and numerous Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Joe and Vera Riley, Uncle, T. Gordon Oliver, and his infant son, Cody Aaron Riley.
He attended North Baltimore Local Schools. Matthew served our country proudly as a Corporal in the Marines from 2006-2010, and a Specialist in the Army from 2010-2014. His service included two deployments to Iraq, one deployment to Afghanistan, and a year stationed in Korea.
There was nothing Matthew loved more than his wife, sons, and the Marines. He loved building Legos, going fishing, and ”killing bad guys” on their video games with his Stinkerbutt. Matt was ornery, stubborn, and very loved. He will be missed by family, friends, and his brothers in arms.
Services will be held at Smith-Crates Funeral Home in North Baltimore with visitation on Thursday, July 20, 2017 from 2-4pm and 6-8pm and funeral on Friday, July 21, 2017 at 11am.
Burial will follow at New Maplewood Cemetery in North Baltimore with full military rights conducted by the American Legion Post #539.
Memorials can be made to the Semper Fi Fund or Colon Cancer Research in Matthew’s name.
