Branson entertainer Joey Riley, who was diagnosed with cancer this spring, died last night, according to his Facebook page.

“It is with the deepest sadness that I inform all of Joey’s fans, supporters and friends that Joey passed away last night,”  a post on Joey’s page stated. “He went to Heaven peacefully in his sleep, surrounded by those who loved him. He will be missed by many, but we know he is in a better place, reunited with his mother and father and those who have gone before him. The Riley family can't thank everyone enough for all the love, support and kindness you have showed us during this trying time. Details about services will be shared as soon as arrangements are made.”

Riley, 43, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in late March.
