Colonel Patrick E. Riley USMCR, 60, of Germantown, MD passed away suddenly Sunday, December 2, 2018. He was born in Watertown, New York to the late John and Carol Riley. His father was an accomplished and recognized leader in Army Special Forces. Pat retired from the Marine Corps with 30 years of world-wide service as an infantry officer. He combined military service with a twenty-seven year career at Bechtel Power Corporation. His passion for leadership led him to coach, teach and mentor several generations of military and civilian leaders. In the toughest of circumstances, Pat could be counted on to lead by example and from the front in both his professional and personal life. His greatest joy was his family. He was devoted to his loving wife Jackie and together shared in an extraordinary commitment to their children and grandchildren. He passed away while on his hockey skates participating in the sport he loved.
Pat is survived by his wife Jaqueline and two daughters Bridget Riley and Shannon Smith. He was predeceased by his oldest daughter Kristen Gorman.
He is also survived by four grandchildren Brianna, Riley, Isaac, and Addison.
