Although he had just turned 20 on April 26, Riley Daniel Ray Huiras had an impact on his community that "went far beyond his 20 years of life."
"Once you met him, you didn't forget him," Grand Rapids Police Chief Melvin Pedersen said.
Huiras, the son of Kevin and Tami Huiras, was an Eagle Scout, played the violin and the piano, worked for the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters baseball team, volunteered as an auxiliary officer with the Grand Rapids Police Department and was a firefighter with the Grand Rapids Volunteer Fire Department.
"His greatest passion is the betterment of others through police work and firefighting," his obituary said.
Huiras died Wednesday from a brain aneurysm. Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at the United Methodist Church, 441 Garfield St., Wisconsin Rapids. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until the time of the service at the church.
