elevated eyOCo Obituary

elevated eyOCo REILLY, Thomas Joseph
April 28, 1934 – May 9, 2024

elevated eyOCo With sadness, the family of Thomas Joseph Reilly announce his passing on May 9, 2024 at the age of 90. Tom passed away peacefully with family by his side. Loving father to Philip, Margaret, Anne-Marie, Sarah (David), and Thomas (Lexi). Cherished grandfather to Michael, Caitlin, Ethan, Taylor, Samuel, Rhylie and Avery. Tom is survived by his loving partner Emily Teo and is predeceased by his first wife Sarah Jane Reilly (nee McBride). He will be greatly missed by all his family and his many friends.

elevated eyOCo Tom was born and raised in Scotland by his uncles. He emigrated to Canada in 1966 with Sarah and their four young children, and soon thereafter had their fifth child in Canada. They began their life in Canada in Bracebridge where Tom continued his career in teaching, eventually relocating to Brampton, Ontario. A lifelong learner with a curious mind and belief in commitment to others, Tom spent his career in education and in service to the Catholic community, as Director of Education for the Dufferin-Peel Roman Catholic Separate School Board, Executive Director of the Completion Office: Separate Schools, Executive Director of the Ontario Catholic Supervisory Officer’s Association, and General Secretary of the Ontario Conference of Catholic Bishops. Always active in mind and body, he was a kind and gentle man who led by example with humour and humility. In his retirement, he found great joy line-dancing, traveling to see the world, watching his grandchildren grow and making a loving home with Emily.
