Frederick Harris Riales, 75, died peacefully at home surrounded by his family on February 2, 2021. Fred was born March 1, 1945 in Como, MS, to Alfred Preston Riales and Katherine Trotter Riales. He married his wife, Susan Swintz Robertson Riales, on November 1, 1986. Fred was a graduate of North Panola High School in Sardis, MS. After completing two years at Northwest Jr. College in Senatobia, MS, he transferred to the Memphis Academy of the Arts where he graduated with a degree in textile design. During this time, he also served six years in the National Guard. After receiving his degree, he was employed by the textile manufacturing company, Golding Industries in New York City, which specialized in pattern design and printing of mattress ticking. In 1975, the company moved him to Marion, SC, to work as the head of the engraving department at their Raytex facility. Upon moving to Marion, he joined the Mullins Playmakers where he acted, served on the board, and designed sets that transported the audience to king’s palaces, South Pacific islands, and midwestern towns. After 20 years with the textile industry, Fred retired to pursue his passion of floral design. He was part owner in White’s Flower Shoppe for several years before continuing independently. During this time, he also used his artistic talents to approve artwork for textile production. Fred served on the Pee Dee Electric Cooperative Board of Trustees from 1996-2011. He was their chaplain from 2000-2011. Despite the talents he possessed with flowers, paint, gardening, and fabric, loving his family was his greatest. There was nothing he held closer to his heart than time spent with them and ensuring that they knew how much he loved them. Fred is survived by his wife of 34 years, Susan Swintz Robertson Riales, of Gresham; children Lance D. (Kerri) Robertson and Rebecca R. (Jacob) Arnette; grandchildren Cyan, Seth, Ryne, Nina, Sophia, and Sarai Robertson, Emma Grace, Josiah, Isabella, and Lydia Arnette; great-grandson Ezra Chapman; god-daughters Kara and Virginia Robinson; siblings Mary Gray, Robert Leslie (Eon) Riales, Wanda Bennett; sister-in-law Kaye Riales; and many beloved nephews, nieces, and friends. In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by his in-laws Dayton and Ruth Swintz; siblings Kenneth Riales and Jim (Anne) Riales.
