Stuart Riley

December 28, 1965 — January 22, 2024

Stuart Riley, 58, beloved Son, Brother, and Uncle, was called to his eternal resting place on January 22, 2024, in Midlothian, TX. He was born on December 28, 1965 in Roswell, NM, to Jay and Loretta Riley and is preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his sister Cyd Riley Rogers; brother Scott Riley and niece Aryn Riley; nephew Bryce Rogers, wife Emily, and great nephews Hayden and Liam; nephew Blane Rogers, wife Emily, great nephew Brady, great nieces Lila, and Reese; nephew Brett Rogers, wife Mackenzie, great nieces Madison, Tatum, and Austyn; niece Kelsey Riley Roberts, husband Jeremy, and great nephew Beau; aunt Stephanie Armstrong, husband Leonard; cousin Nate Armstrong, wife Stacey; cousin Ashley Garcia, husband Carlos, and many other cousins across the US.

Stuart's favorite place to be was the golf course. He was a proud employee of the New Mexico Military Institute golf course for over 25 years. Upon early retirement, due to health issues, he was awarded the Crossed Saber award for his dedicated service to NMMI. Stuart enjoyed fishing and duck hunting with his brother and nephews as well as attending all the baseball, football, softball, soccer, basketball games, and concerts he could of his great nieces and nephews.

Stuart never met a stranger and was a friend to everyone he met. He will be forever remembered for his loving kind nature, hardworking attitude, his quirky sense of humor, and his love (whether winning or losing) of the Dallas Cowboys.
