Obituary for Philip Rivera

Philip Rivera, of Woodstock, GA, passed away on Tuesday, August 9, 2022. He was 79 years old.

Philip was born in the Bronx, New York on July 13, 1943 to parents, Philip and Esmeralda Rivera. He relocated to Michigan where he and his wife, Isabel raised their two daughters, Elizabeth and Rachel. Philip was a hard worker and was a supervisor for General Motors in their Powertrain division for 30 years before retiring and uprooting to Georgia where he currently calls home.

Philip loved to travel and experience new restaurants and cities with Isabel. He would always travel with her as her position in sales took them all over the Southeastern United States. He loved to read, was a true “gamer” and was always eager to teach children about computers, play games or sing songs with them. Philip enjoyed woodworking, was an avid gun collector and a true marksman at the range.

Most of all, Philip loved his family and cherished the time spent with them. He was was larger than life and will truly be missed by all who knew him.

Saez) Rivera; his daughters, Elizabeth (Michael) Novak and Rachel (Howard) Smith; his grandchildren, Michael, Corey, Sarah, Julia (Sara Brunetti), Gabriel, Hamilton, Isabel and Genevieve; his sister, Karen (Phil) DeVivo as well as many close friends and extended family members.
