Michael R. Reilly

May 15, 1954 — February 9, 2020

On February 9, 2020, Michael Ray Reilly, left his family unexpectedly at the age of 65. Michael was born in Taylorville, IL on May 15, 1954, to Joseph and Imogene Beattie. At the age of 5, he would lose his father and, soon after, John Reilly would adopt him and his siblings, Susan and Steven.

In 1982, Michael married the love of his life, Donna. She came with bonus daughters, Michelle and Sarah. Soon Joseph and Lisa would come along to complete the family. He worked for GPD/Tracey Industries for 42 years, first delivering Ford parts and later as a sales manager. His family was his pride and joy. He was a good friend and brother to many.

Michael is survived by his wife Donna, children Michelle, Sarah (Carlos), Joseph (Alex), Lisa (James), son-in-law Dan, 9 grandchildren, mother Carolyn Reilly, brother-in-laws Dennis and David (Lux), sister-in-law Rosemary, and several nieces and nephews.
