Reil, Robert E.  
Robert Edward (Bob) Reil, of South Burlington, Vermont, died on May 19th at age 73, due to complications from Myelodysplastic Syndrome. He was born on January 14, 1943, in Rutland, Vermont. His parents were John W. and Florence M. (Sweeney) Reil of Castleton, Vermont. He attended local schools, and graduated from Mount St. Joseph Academy in 1961. He graduated from Castleton College in 1965, majoring in science and mathematics. After teaching for several years, Bob joined the U.S. Army and served at posts in the United States and in Germany. Following his discharge he attended a technical school in New York, to learn to be a ceramicist. After working in several dental labs in Massachusetts, New York, and Vermont, he opened his own laboratory in Vermont, which he operated until his health failed. Survivors include Mary F. Kelly, his fiancé; a sister, Margaret Harvey (William), of West Rutland, Vermont; a brother, John W. Reil Jr., of Montpelier, Vermont; an uncle, Clarence Sweeney, of Castleton, Vermont; 11 nieces and nephews, and many friends. Bob enjoyed racing his Saab Sonnet in hill climbs, hunting, and being an active member of the Vermont Palma Rifle Team. He was an avid fan and supporter of the UVM Hockey Cats. After his discharge from the Army, Bob became interested in Bench Rest Shooting. He practiced that discipline for a short time. But his avocation in life was Rifle Highpower Shooting and to a lesser degree Rifle Smallbore shooting, mainly in the winter months. He adopted Highpower Shooting fully, achieving a High Master Classification in NRA Across the Course National Competition, Mid-Range and Long Range. International Fullbore and Prone Matches were his main interest later on. He attended local and regional matches winning the competition on several occasions both as an individual and as a member of the Vermont team. In the past he was the State of Vermont Champion. Bob participated successfully many years in the National Matches at Camp Perry in Ohio, winning honors both as an individual and as a member of the Vermont team. He was a Life Member of the NRA and the Burlington Rifle and Pistol Club, as well as the Vermont State Rifle and Pistol Association where he served several terms as the President and Secretary. Bob was the Director of the State of Vermont Rifle Competition for many years. In 1982 Bob was a member of the USA Palma Team that competed in Canada. In 2014 he participated in the Long Range World Championship and won a Silver Medal as a Member of the USA Veterans Team. He was an intense but unassuming competitor always willing to help shooters with equipment or advice when asked. Bob was always modest about his successes, never bragging about his triumphs. He was predeceased by his parents. A celebration of his life will be held at Christ the King Church in Burlington, at 11 a.m. on Tuesday May 24th. Burial will follow the service at Resurrection Park, at 200 Hinesburg Rd., in South Burlington. Friends may call from 6 to 9 p.m., Monday May 23rd at the Ready Funeral Home at 261 Shelburne Rd., in Burlington.
