Riley C. Hadeen

May 17, 1994 — December 26, 2021

Riley Cain Hadeen, age 27 of Sandpoint, Idaho, passed away on December 26 while snowboarding on Schweitzer Mountain.  He was born May 17, 1994, in Rapid City, South Dakota, but grew up in Sandpoint. He recently completed his electrician’s apprenticeship and worked for Energy Electric. He earned his associates degree from North Idaho College where he specialized in journalism and worked for The Sentinel newspaper.  Riley played Lacrosse, ran cross country and was an avid hiker skier and snowboarder who loved the outdoors. His zest for life, for adventure, for his family and his friends made up a big part of who he was. He was kind-hearted, quirky, honest, unpretentious, humble, compassionate, curious, funny, inquisitive, and willing to try anything. He squeezed a lifetime into his 27-years.  

Riley would agree with John Muir who said, “The world is big, and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.” Riley did.  He embraced life to its fullest, focusing on friends, family, and experiences rather than fortune or fame.  Riley was full of joy, spontaneous, and reveled in taking the road less traveled. Loved by all. Reviled by none.  He is missed by those honored to know him.

He was preceded in death by his father, Timothy Hadeen and his grandfathers, Richard Schuller and William Hadeen.  He is survived by his mother, Catherine Jane Schuller (Don Otis), brother, Nicholas Hadeen (Lisa), his nephew (Liam Riley) and niece (Neyla Grace); stepmother, Shirley Hadeen (William Kolnsberg and Amanda Dexter) Grandmother’s Janet Schuller, Wanda Hadeen and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

We invite friends and family to join us in celebrating Riley’s life 4-6 pm on Saturday, January 8th, 2022, at Sandpoint Business & Event Center, 102 S. South Euclid in Sandpoint.
