Robert “Bobby” P. Riling, 75, of McArthur, passed away on Friday, September 18, 2020, at Adena Regional Medical Center in Chillicothe. He was born on April 10, 1945 in Columbus, Ohio, son of the late James Andrew and Virginia Vivian (Sulser) Riling. A Christian by faith, Bobby was very active in any church he ever attended.
