Beloved grandson of Jerry & Sandra Moreau (nee Coghlan) and Wanda Hounsome & Andrew Tardiff, great-grandson of Gail Moreau and Margaret Hounsome & Don Hamilyn. He will be greatly missed by his aunt Jennifer Wood and uncle Mike Wood, whom he had a special bond with; several great-aunts and uncles, many cousins, especially Anthony Moreau. Predeceased by great grandparents Micheal & Marjorie Coghlan (nee Lepine), great grandfather (poppa) Gordon Moreau, aunt Sarah Hounsome and cousin Nathan Sideras.

Riley loved to sing, he loved old songs. He was an old soul and made everyone laugh. He had a great sense of humor and loved playing games online with his friends. Ri, you will be missed by your family and friends so much. We love you to the moon and back. Riley loved the color purple, we would love it if you would wear something purple for him.
