John C. Reilly
John Christopher Reilly, 61, of Shelburne, Vermont, died on April 4, 2022 at the University of Vermont Medical Center after a prolonged illness. He was surrounded by his loving family.
John was born on April 10, 1960 in Brooklyn, New York to Marianne Ondocin Beckett and John Reilly,. He grew up in Northport, New York enjoying the beach, boating and many hours in the woods with friends.
John was a talented guitarist, a history buff and always quick to make others laugh. He was very warm-hearted and a kind man who will be missed. He was one of the good guys.
John is survived by his mother, Marianne Ondocin Beckett of Shelburne; his father, John Reilly of New York; his sister, Diana Reilly and sister-in-law Michelle Richard of Shelburne.
John was a very proud and loving Uncle to his two nieces/God--daughters, Grace Seeley of Bozeman, Montana and Nora Richard of Shelburne, Vermont. John is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles and cousins far and wide.
Our family is grateful for the compassionate and expert care John received from his many outpatient and inpatient physicians via the University of Vermont Medical Center. In particular, Dr. Ann Brena was a steady guide through many difficulties. We also greatly appreciate the efforts of the excellent nurses and doctors in the Intensive Care Unit and the Emergency Room.
A memorial service will be held at Saint Catherine of Siena Church in Shelburne village at 11:30 AM on Saturday, April 9, 2022. A second memorial will be held in New York at a later date.
