Reilly, Harold E.

REILLY, Harold E. – Sadly, we announce the peaceful passing of Harold Elgin Reilly at the Guelph General Hospital on Saturday, May 23, 2020 in his 92nd year.

Loving husband of 62 years of Jean (Petty). Devoted father of Brenda (Aurelio) Damota, Brian Reilly, and Mark (Glenda) Reilly. Cherished “Grandpa Harold” to Cameron (Adrianna), Renae, Mitchell (Dani) Damota, Kiersten (Ty) and Braiden Reilly. Survived by sister-in-law Marilyn. Predeceased by his father Elgin Reilly (1971), mother Doris (Huntley) (1988), and brother Kenneth (March 2020).

Known for his quiet, gentle nature, Harold was loved by all. He farmed for many years in the Hillsburgh area before retiring to Guelph in 2015. He was a life member of the Erin Agricultural Society and the oldest living past president. Dancing, card playing, travelling and getting together with family and friends was special to him.

A special thanks to the doctors and staff of 5E & 7E at the Guelph General Hospital for their excellent care and compassion.

A celebration of life to come at a later date.
