RILEY, Victor Karl (January 1928 – July 2018) – Passed away peacefully on Monday, July 30, 2018 at Trustbridge (Hospice) in his 90th year.  Victor was a quiet and gentle soul.  He was known for his kindness and love that extended beyond just his family.  As one family member described him, Victor was a kind and soft hearted man who laughed easily and could soothe a crying baby with his gentle arms.  Victor loved gardening and had a wonderful green thumb and every plant under his care thrived.  Victor also loved his Lord and Saviour and served faithfully at his church.  He worked for many years with Caribbean Cement Company in Jamaica, W.I. as a mechanical engineer.
