There’s a right way, a wrong way and the O’Reilly way. Bobby did it his way. He was loyal to friend and family, but Bobby always put his kids first. Regardless of what was going on in their lives they could always come to him: Bobby gave advice and never judgement. If the T.V. was on you’d hear him yelling at the Eagles. Sundays were his day for cooking; his spaghetti sauce was tops and he made more Broccoli Rabe than you could ever possibly eat. If you liked drama he wasn’t your guy; Bobby was a born peacemaker. Younger years found him doing a little fishing and betting the ponies and football.
He is survived by his mother; Geraldine O’Reilly, children; Leinaala (Douglas Potter), Haunani, Uiilani-Rose (John) Roche, Joshua, and Kelsey; grandchildren Uluwehi, Ala-kai, Aviana, Ke-ola, Kelii’kai, Mahealani, Elias, Jalen, and Kae’breunna siblings, Deneen (Raymond) Hartman, Colleen (Christopher) Costello, and Danielle (Jason McLaughlan),nieces; Jillian Costello and Jenna McLaughlan, nephew; Ryan (Shannon)Bienkowski, and great nieces; Rylie and Brianne Bienkowski. He was preceded by his father, Robert O’Reilly.
Come celebrate 59 great years Saturday 9-11 a.m. at Sweeney Funeral Home, Beverly where there will be an 11 a.m. service. Interment private.
