Obituary of Riley Mae Sluman
Riley Mae Sluman, 24, of Evans, died September 21, 2021 in Firestone as the result of a motorcycle accident. Riley was born June 20, 1997 in Louisville, CO to Michael “Scottie” Sluman and Toni Dawe. She was raised in Lafayette and graduated from Centaurus High School in 2015. In 2018 she welcomed her pride and joy, Huxley, into her life. That started a bond that was as thick as the one she had with her Daddy. Riley’s love for her family ran deep. The love she had for her dad, Scottie, was palpable from a far. A love that most people will never experience in a lifetime, and a loyalty to him that was undying. Scottie’s love for his baby girl was twice that. He was the greatest father a little girl could ever have. She also shared a crazy love for her big brother, Justin. Her mom called them her Gemini Twins, both born June 20th five years apart. Riley thought is was great that they shared that day. Justin, however; was hoping for a bicycle on his 5th birthday. The gift he received instead turned into a bond that could never be broken. Riley had numerous cousins that meant the world to her and they all fiercely loved her back. Riley had a beautiful voice and knew the words to every song she liked even after only listening to it once. She loved live music and hardly missed a concert of her favorite bands. She would do anything for her many friends. From driving them anywhere they needed to go, to sitting with them for hours when they needed a friend, to countless crazy adventures across this country. Riley always had her entourage in tow. She loved to cook and if you were there at dinner time you knew this to be true. She took up the hobby of photography in middle school and she soon became her own favorite subject. She and Huxley moved to Texas with her mom for a short time in 2019 where she created so many more friendships that meant the world to her. Riley loved Huxley and wanted, more than most knew, that “Happily ever after ending” with Huxley’s dad, Matt. Riley’s heart was huge even under that tough wild side she portrayed and she will be deeply missed by so many. Riley is survived by her son, Huxley; mother, Toni Dawe (Dave Burton); brother, Justin Bullock; niece Amber Grace Bullock; grandma’s , Connie Sluman and Kris Janssen; grandpa, Rich Dawe (Ellen Dawe); and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, AND her forever loyal fur babies Mini and Copper. Riley and her father left this world side by side and will continue to raise hell together. She was preceded in death by paternal grandfather, Papa Don Sluman; and her Papa Mert Janssen. A memorial service for Scottie and Riley will be held Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 1:00 PM, 10230 County Road 15., Longmont, CO 80504. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Sluman family.
