“I am saddened by the loss of Dr. Riley, and my thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Judith, and their loving family, including daughter Celeste Riley, the County Clerk, and his son Joseph P. Riley.
“As a County Republican Chairman, I am particularly aware of the challenges and duties Dr. Riley faced in his dual role as an elected official and political chair. He performed his responsibilities with the calm demeanor befitting of a physician. His presence will be missed in Cumberland County.”
