AUGUSTA -- Riley E. Baugh, age 7, went to be with the Lord on Friday, Oct. 26, 2012, at Maine Medical Center, Portland, with his mom and dad holding his hands. He was born in Augusta on Oct. 10, 2005, a son of Benny Baugh and Angela Morin.
Riley was a second grader at Gilbert Elementary School, where he had many friends that he loved; he did well in school. He enjoyed going out to recess to play kickball and four square with his friends.
What can you say about losing your best friend? Riley was the most selfless kid you could have ever met.
He would make sure everyone had anything they needed or wanted before himself. He had a special bond with "his" dog, Minnie, who he loved cuddling with. He loved WWE so much that he would have wrestling matches in the living room with his brother Adam and buddy Ryan. Riley loved playing video games with his brother, Zac, who would always help him through the tough parts. Riley Roo will be missed by everyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting him. He always had a smile that would light up the room.
A special thanks goes out to all of his doctors and nurses that have taken care of Riley trying to find answers to the mystery.
He is survived by his parents, Benny Baugh and Angela Morin of Augusta; two brothers, Adam Baugh and Zachary Crocker, both of Augusta; maternal grandparents Mark and Lynn Morin, of Chelsea; great-grandparents Emile and Gisele Morin, of Augusta, and Paul and Marion Spiro, also of Augusta; Auntie Stacy Thorndike and her husband, Shawn, of Vassalboro; cousins, Hunter Gunning and Payton Thorndike, both of Vassalboro; as well as several aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Relatives and friends may visit on Tuesday, Oct. 30, from 9-11 a.m. at Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant St., Augusta, where a funeral service will follow at 11 a.m.
