William Joseph Riley, age 55, of Venice, FL, passed away on October 4, 2022.  He was born in Red Bank, NJ to William John and Marie Riley.  From an early age Bill loved playing in the back yard digging holes with his Tonka truck.  He turned that love into a successful career in the construction industry.  Bill operated his business in New Jersey, and came to Florida from Middletown, NJ in 2005, where he continued his business, CAS Asset Management.

Bill’s love of his family was the most important aspect of his life.  He loved the water since he was a child and has always lived within a few miles of a beach.  In his spare time, Bill enjoyed boating, fishing, and golf.  Bill was proud to give back to his community and was an avid animal lover.  His favorite movies include Super Troopers and Caddyshack and was a big New York Giants and Yankees fan.  When Bill turned up the music, it was usually Jimmy Buffet.
