Dear Rae and family,
I no longer take the newspaper, so just learned of Pete's death. He was a stellar person. He helped the Office of Admissions, and me personally, in the evaluation of academic records of his exchange students. Unlike many others, he was personally interested and invested in the success of his students. He was a fascinating conversationalist, and a true gentleman. He not only was valued by me as a friend and colleague, but by my father- and mother-in-law (Dick and Juanita Parker) who met him through Dolly. They enjoyed him immensely. I will not meet another like him.
Wishing you peace,
Pat Parker
Former Associate Director of International Admissions, ISU

Dear Rae: I have learned about Dr. Reilly's death just today, December 12, 2017. As a foreign student at ISU from 1980 until 1983, Dr. Reilly was a friendly, fatherly figure to me. Because of his mentoring spirit, we became so close. Finding him everyday along Sweeney Hall allies was a time to smile and chat a bit. I praise the Lord for his friendship and I will surely remember him as long as I live.

I was one of the ChemE students on Dr. Reilly's summer exchange program with University College-London in 1979. I remember the lectures and the labs we did, and the mid-session industry tour to northern England. My life was expanded with the academic travel and I am honored to have taken classes from Dr. Reilly. I am sure he made a similar impression on many other students during his time at Iowa State.

My sympathies to all who are saddened by his death.

Dear Rae,

How fortunate you and Peter were to have so many wonderful years together. This is a difficult time perhaps made easier by the support of your loving family. Please accept the deepest sympathy of an old friend.
