RIVEIRE, JON, much beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 13, 2013, with his family by his side.
The Guest Book is expired.
He was the cherished son of Jane and Milton Riveire, born in Houston, TX on February 11, 1948, and was a die-hard Texas A&M Aggie. He quietly endured many years of rivalry with his Texas Longhorn extended family, always delighted when his Aggies prevailed.
Jon was a Christian, having spent his life in the Presbyterian and Episcopal Church. He was a selfless man, always thinking of others first.
He loved and was very proud of his family - his best friend and wife of 36 years, Carol; his children Jon Jr. and Elizabeth; Jon's wife Tricia and Elizabeth's fiancé Nick. He felt so blessed to be present at the birth of his two-year-old granddaughter Madalynn, daughter of Jon and Tricia.
Jon proudly spent his entire professional career of 44 years in the stock brokerage business, and over those years filled just about every position available, making many lifelong friends with co-workers and clients. He was very proud of his latest position as part of a team with his wonderful partners, Diane and Paul at Wells Fargo Advisors, and looked forward to each new day.
Jon loved sports, reading, and travel - especially to Boothbay Harbor, ME to enjoy time with close friends, Carr and Dawn. He was a wonderful cook, in the kitchen and outside on the grill - a talent that will be missed.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, July 22, 2013 at 3 p.m. at St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church, 6710 Wolf Pen Branch Road, Harrods Creek, KY 40027. Arrangements entrusted with Arch L. Heady & Son at Westport Village In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the
