Obituary for David Reilly

David  Reilly
David John Reilly, a longtime resident of Larchmont, died May 31st, 2018. Born and raised in Queens, David was the son of David Reilly and Christine Geraghty. David graduated from St. John’s University Law School, where he met his wife Mary O’Keefe. They were married in the St. John’s Chapel, after David completed his service at the Pentagon during the Vietnam War. David worked as an attorney at Con Edison, where he made some very close friends. David and Mary eventually moved to Larchmont, where they raised their two children, Katherine and David, until Mary’s untimely death in 1997. As a single father, David continued his and Mary’s quest to lovingly see their children through to adulthood. A lifelong animal-lover, David spent many happy hours as a volunteer docent at the Bronx Zoo. David’s love for his children, who were his pride and joy, guided him through the end of his life. David is survived by his devoted and loving children, Katherine (Christoph Greuter) of Thun, Switzerland and David (Qian Li) of New Rochelle, NY. Visiting Sunday June 3rd, 2-4 and 7-9 PM at John J. Fox Funeral Home in Larchmont. Mass of Christian Burial Monday at 10 AM at St. Augustine Church in Larchmont. Interment at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Hawthorne, NY. In lieu of flowers, donations to Calvary Hospital or the Bronx Zoo would be appreciated.
