Riley Jacob Timmons

Riley Jacob Timmons was born July 24, 1980 in Sturgis, SD to John and Cathy (Wenzel) Timmons. He attended rural schools at Enning and Maurine SD and high school in Faith, SD. Later he attended Western Dakota Tech in Rapid City. After receiving his degree in mechanics, he accepted a position at Thunder Basin Ford in Gillette, WY, Halliburton, and then Rawhide Coal Mine.

As a child he loved riding bicycles, riding horse, playing in the sandbox, making his own toys with electrical tape, fishing, and many years in 4-H. In high school, he was a proud Longhorn football player proudly wearing the #58, which was later worn by his brothers. When not in school activities and working after school, he worked in the family catering business and in the ranch. He loved tinkering from a young age and working on small engines before he was even a teenager. He worked, played, and fought with his four siblings.

Riley married Marissa McCaskill on a beautiful September 22, 2012 and together they had two beautiful girls, Autumn and Harper. He absolutely cherished all of his girls. He loved spending with his family whether it be a house project or watching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, or dancing in the kitchen with the kids while momma cooked.

Riley died suddenly of a massive heart attack at home in March 27, 2021 at the age of 40. He is survived by his beloved wife Marissa and their two daughters Autumn and Harper; his parents John & Cathy Timmons; siblings Bonnie, James, Robert, and Charles (Darlene) Timmons; multiple in-laws as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.

He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents.

Visitation will be 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., with a Celebration of Riley’s Life beginning at 1:00 p.m., on Thursday, April 1, 2021 at the Boulder Canyon Station Convention Center in Sturgis. Burial will follow at the White Owl Cemetery.
