PHILPOTT, Riley Michael

With deepest sorrow, the family of Riley Michael Philpott born March 10, 1998, announce his tragic passing on March 23, 2022. Leaving to mourn him are his parents Ken and Patricia Philpott, along with his younger brother Brenden and grandparents George and Mary Hobbs. He is also mourned by a large extended family and a wide circle of friends.

Like his dad, Riley became a Power Engineer and worked as a Process Operator at the NWR Sturgeon Refinery, where his co-workers quickly became good friends. Riley was spontaneous, witty, and a world traveler. Most of all, he loved spending time with the special people in his life.

Riley was a huge animal lover. Once settled into his own apartment, he adopted two kitties, Gunnar and Kero, who quickly became his number one priority.

Riley, we are so proud of what you accomplished in your short time on earth. You brightened the day of many people with your laugh and caring soul. You gave freely of yourself never expecting anything in return. Our loss is Heaven’s gain!

A gathering with the family will be held on Saturday, April 2, 2022, 2:00 pm -6:00 pm at the family home (53 Creekside Close, Spruce Grove). All family and friends are welcome.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Edmonton Humane Society.

I met Riley online in highschool through a game we still regularly played till now. I always wanted to come and meet him and so many of the other amazing friends I met through him, so when I finally got to do that this year it was a treat and a pleasure to have him host me on my weekend trip. I got to celebrate his birthday with him and just be in the presence of someone so happy and caring of others. He was courteous and selfless, I refused to let him pay for so many things because he was already gracious enough to drive and house me for 3 days. After 8 years it was a treat to finally meet Riley. I wish I could have stayed longer to do more amazing things and take in my friend while I had the chance.

My condolences to the Phillpot family. Riley was a very special person and he is deeply loved and missed by all of his online friends.

I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers and hugs to your family. Riley was such an amazing and quirky friend. He could always make me smile. We used to have nap competitions to see who could nap the longest. He lit up a room. I loved the time and memories I got to make with him. We shared many memes over the years and I always looked forward to seeing new ones he shared with me. We did a Jasper trip together one year and it was one of my favourite trips ever. He will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts.
