Jacob “Jake” Riley, 25, of Brodhead, died, March 31, 2022.

He was born on Dec. 29, 1996, in Darlington, Wisconsin to Jason and Kasa (Daly) Riley.

He was an amazing father, loving husband to-be, beloved son, loving brother, and friend to too many to list.

He worked alongside his dad, and they shared an everlasting bond that will live on forever.

Together, they enjoyed hunting and found a new love for the north where they would spend their time camping, fishing, and just enjoying the great outdoors.

He loved rebuilding and working on cars with his soon to be father-in-law Jason Wenger and the “Oldman” Terri Wenger.

According to his family, he could be wild, crazy, and always make people laugh no matter the situation.

His family was his pride and joy. He cherished his family and every opportunity that he was able to spend with his children and fiancée.

He enjoyed showing and teaching them about things that he and his dad would do together such as fishing and hunting.

“Though he was taken too soon, he left us with many happy memories that will always be cherished,” his family stated.

He is survived by his children Jameson Riley, Izac Casten, Athena Carreras, and fiancée Katie Wenger of Brodhead; his parents Jason and Kasa Riley of Argyle; and his two siblings McKenzie Riley and Mia Riley. He is also survived by his siblings Jonathon Bailey, Jeremiah Bailey, Novalee Bailey, Aleathea Bailey, Xavier Bailey, Cecelia Bailey, and their mother Atoshia Bailey of Shullsburg. He is also survived by his grandparents: Mark and Ruby Butson of Argyle; Connie and Ted Henderson of Monroe.

He was preceded in death by his unborn daughter; his brother Aden Riley; grandparent Terri “Oldman” Wenger; and his great-grandparents: Margarite and Bill Riley, Sandy and Leroy Narveson.

A funeral service and visitation was held on April 8 at the Erickson Funeral Home in Argyle with Rev. Daniel Bohlman officiating.
