Paul John Risley, 48, of Lebanon, passed away after a brief illness on November 29, 2018 at Hartford Hospital. Born in Rhode Island on March 18, 1970, he was the son of the late Gilbert and Carolyn (Schulz) Risley. As a youth, Paul participated in Soccer and Cross Country Running. Paul grew up on the family farm, known as R-Farm in Lebanon. He took great pride in the farm and continued working it throughout his life.

May God rest his soul in eternal peace. He leaves to mourn his loss his children, Benjamin and Rebecca Risley; his sister, Geraldline Risley of Lebanon and many extended family members and friends.
