EULOGY

IVAN A. RIERA
July 1, 1911 March 8, 1979
Ivan Riera was born in St. Thomas and, except for short
vacations in St. Croix and on the U.S. mainland, he spent his
entire life on the island of his birth.
He was a devout member of Sts. Peter and Paul Roman
Catholic parish from childhood to his death. Recently, he has
been active in the Charismatic meetings at Holy Family, St.
Andrews Episcopal and Sts. Peter and Paul parishes. Many
brothers and sisters from the charismatic movement con-
tributed to his physical and spiritual comfort by prayers
and visits during his illness at home and in the hospital.
Ivan Riera was employed by the Department of Educa-
tion continuously from 1937 until his retirement in 1976,
with the exception of a few years in Public works, as dis-
patcher in the motor pool. His first assignment at Education
was messenger and chauffeur and his last assignment was
as maintenance engineer at Wayne Aspinall Junior High
School.
Ivan has been outstanding for his courteous and helpful
relationship with co-workers and supervisory personnel.
He is survived by four brothers Jospeh, Leopold, Otis
and Eric Riera; two sister Maria and Calme; and many
nephews, nieces and cousins.
He will be missed by relatives and many friends.
