Mark is survived by his companion, Rose Kuhnke; sister, Karen (Bill) Leto; brothers, Jim (Elaine) Rilley, Dennis Rilley, Tim (Deb) Rilley, and Patrick Rilley; daughters, Nicole (Jason) Lingafelt, Nissa (Rich) Hochschild; his son, Michael Rilley, Sr.; his grandchildren, Riley, Kyla, Jacob, and Michael, Jr.; numerous cousins; and multiple friends, both local and in the ‘hood and all along his diverse, full life. ‘
It was Mark’s wish that there not be a viewing, memorial service, or wake. Mark will be cremated and his remains will be placed alongside our mother’s in Wisconsin’s beautiful north country.

Honoring Mark’s passing would be incomplete without a special mention for the staff of Pine Crest. They are exceptional people who gave Mark tremendous care and untiring attention during his time with them. They have earned the Rilley family’s deepest appreciation, heartfelt thanks, and never ending gratitude.
