AGE: 79 • Sea Girt

Richard C. Reilly, 79, of Sea Girt, passed away peacefully at home, where he wanted to be, surrounded by his family. Born in North Arlington, he lived in Glen Ridge, before moving to Sea Girt 43 years ago.

He was a veteran of the United States Navy and was a member of St. Marks RC Church in Sea Girt, Miles River Yacht Club, St. Michaels, MD and a former member of Coral Beach Club in Bermuda.

In 1974 he founded Richard C. Reilly Asphalt Paving in Brielle where he remained active until his passing.

He was an avid sports fan, a boxing encyclopedia, a devoted Packers fan who hated the Giants (even though he was a season ticket holder for 50 years). He was an expert pool player who loved and ruled "his table". He was an aggressive tennis player who enjoyed all his tennis buddies and their "post-game meetings". Most of all, he loved his friends, family and grandchildren and enjoyed the many trips to Bermuda, Italy and Ireland. He also enjoyed his many friends and time spent in Tilghman Island, MD.
