Kenneth E. Reilly

March 2, 1937 — January 28, 2023

Beloved husband of Eleanore Reilly (nee Zalud).

Loving father of Susan (Tom) Niemiera, Cathy (Bill) Madura, Jeff (Gail) Reilly, Michelle (Bob) Holesha & Doug Reilly.

Adored grandpa of 8 and great grandpa of 2.

Kind uncle of many nieces & nephews.

Fond brother of the late John, Terry & Mike.

 

Today we lost an amazing man and my hero, Kenneth Edward Reilly. Ken was gentle, loving and respectful soul, despite over 15 years with Alzheimer’s! He enjoyed 65 years of wedded bliss to his bride Eleanore and had 5 amazing children, including in-laws, 8 grandchildren & 2 great grandchildren! Alzheimer’s robbed him of so much, but never his smile, love of food, amazing dance moves or genuine caring of others.

 

Kenny was well loved, not only by his family, but also by his Heartis Family! They selflessly continued loving, caring and respecting him until his last breath. They truly made Ken’s last years an amazing testament to a terrible disease. We will miss you, but at least you are free.
