John “Jack” Patrick Reilly

November 04, 1936 ~ May 09, 2022

John “Jack” Reilly passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family May 9, 2022 at Treasure Coast Hospice in Fort Pierce.

Born in Flushing, NY to James and Mary (Murphy) Reilly on November  4 , 1936. He was a veteran of the United  States  Army.  Jack lived in New York prior to moving to Florida and finally settling in Port St Lucie in 1991.

He is preceded in death by his wife Gayla and daughter Susan. Survived by his daughter Allison and her husband  Jeff , daughter  Caroline , grandchildren Jeremy and Amanda and great granddaughter  Sophie, his brother Owen and sisters Terry and MaryEllen.

Jack loved the outdoors from being out on the water to being on the golf course (his one true love). He never turned down an opportunity to play or watch a golf match. He would regale everyone  with  stories of his youth and  his trips to Yankee stadium  as well as being a lifelong Yankees  fan. He loved his sports and watched anything with a ball.  His love of music would  include  Sinatra,  Streisand, Buble` and Celine Dion. He and his wife Gayla enjoyed  world  travel  having  visited  many  different  countries with beautiful  pictures of their journeys. Their bond was a strong one, reunited once again only 6 months apart.

He was known for his friendliness and never hesitated to make you laugh and smile.  He always made you feel welcomed and had a joke to share.  Jack never had a bad day unless he shot above par on the course, with remarkably three holes in one during his lifetime. Most of all, Jack will be remembered for his wit, sense of humor and kindness. His family will miss him terribly but find comfort knowing that he is finally at peace. He was loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure.

Interment will take place at South Florida National Cemetery in Lake Worth at a later date.

I will definitely miss the quick jokes this man would say! He always caught me off guard with his humor but it was always a good time having him around. I am so grateful he was able to meet his great granddaughter! They enjoyed eachother with the time they were able to spend together. The holidays will be hard without you Grandpa but I know you will always be with us! I’ll make sure I always have shows on my feet just for you! They better give you some wine in Heaven! We will always love and miss you.
Love,
Your granddaughter

Jack was an awesome grandfather to me and my sister. My best memories were spent golfing with him on the golf course and watching sporting events together. He was always knowledgeable of all sports. Rest easy grandpa.

Dad, I will miss you from the start to the end of each day. My life has changed so much recently that it’s hard to look forward. Jeff, the kids and I will miss your advice and company. I know you’ll always be with us. Spending the last 6 months with you meant so much to me. I hope heaven has a golf course for you!
Love your daughter,
Allison

    • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

    • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
