Michael Carmelo Riggio

Michael Carmelo Riggio, 46 years old. Our Angel, Son, and Brother departed to meet his maker at 10:30 am Sunday, September 11th, 2022, at Pikeville Medical Center from complications due to COVID-19.


He is survived by his mother, Etta Louise (Queen)- Riggio; his brother, Christopher Lee Riggio; and a host of other family and friends.


He was heaven on earth, the most innocent creature God could have ever sent. We love him more than words can express and now rejoice, knowing he is in no more pian, he can walk, talk, and hear. We have a guardian angel, as we know he will be watching over us. We will miss him very deeply.


A memorial service will be held at a later date at Chief Logan State Park. The family requests you contact them on Facebook for further details.


Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Collins Funeral Home Inc.

Dear Etta,
I'm so sorry to learn of your loss.
