Riley was born April 28, 1999, in Provo, Utah, to William “Bill” Powell and Linda Powell. Riley truly lived life to the fullest, enjoying dragster racing, basketball, off-roading in his dad’s Jeep, driving fast, and always looking for the next adventure. Riley loved his family, pets, and he loved Breezy. Riley brought joy to those around him with his shy smile and quick wit. Riley’s big heart often showed as he went out of his way to make others happy. Riley was hard working, ensuring he graduated from high school, in which he did, from North Sanpete High School.

Riley is survived by his father, William “Bill” Powell (Debbie Rosenbaum); his mother Linda Powell; his sisters, Nikka and Jewel Powell (Trenton Belvard); and his nieces, Jaycee and Robynn.
