Tribute

Gilles Benoit O'Reilly March 7,1932 – August 12, 2015

Gilles passed away at Surrey Memorial Hospital, after a brave battle with cancer. His family were at his bedside, during his final hours. Gill is survived by his wife of 57 years; children Beatrice, Ronald, and Mark; grandchildren Alexander, Julie, James, Adrianna, Ivy, and Jade; great grandchild Harmony.

Gilles was born in Scout Lake Saskatchewan. He was the fourth child of eleven children born to William and Therese ( Beauregard) O'Reilly.

Gill's passions included golfing, skiing, and hiking. He loved to travel and spend his winter's in Thousand Palms.

Some of Gill's service to his community involved being a Boy Scout Leader, and helping extensively with fundraising effort of a new Catholic parish, St. Mathews (Surrey).

Gilles was a devoted husband, father, and friend; he will be missed by many.

 

In The Eyes of His Daughter:

– He was a patient father

-A loving father

– A teaching – showing man

– A forgiving man

– A man with so few words, but wise words

– Best of all he was my father with the best sense of humour,

and love for my children and me

I am so proud that you were my dad our Pepère

 

Love your daughter,

Beatrice
