OBITUARY

Patrick Sean O'Reilly

October 13, 1965August 31, 2021

Patrick Sean O’Reilly passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, August 31st at the age of 55.

Pat felt that life was too short to take seriously, and so he was dedicated to living his life to the fullest; he participated in multiple triathlons across the country, began his own business, The Ozone, in 2009 where he could live out his dream of “playing games for a living,” and never met a stranger by being quick to joke and eager to share a laugh. He was an amazing friend, athlete, business owner, and coworker - above all, he was the best father you could ever imagine. His energy and charisma filled every room and he was always the first person to lend a hand when someone needed help, friend or stranger alike. He was so extremely proud of his children and never failed to remind them at every chance he got.

We could list more of the accomplishments he achieved, but he would have preferred us to focus on the people he made laugh, smile, or friends with in his life. Through his time as an enthusiastic camp counselor in his youth, a loving father and uncle, a dedicated coach to many kids’ sports teams, and most of all in his title of Mr. O at the Ozone, we can’t begin to quantify a number but we imagine that it was great.

His family misses him dearly and invites the community to gather with them to share memories, enjoy food & drinks, and celebrate a life well-lived on Sunday, September 12th from 2 - 6 pm at Three Lakes Park.

“Mr.” O’Reilly was also a terrific geometry teacher to me and many of my friends at Pompton Lakes high school in NJ. He was my teacher when I was a freshman in 1988-89. He also headed the ski club that I joined that year, as well. He was always patient, kind, and had a welcoming smile. I always enjoyed going to his class, despite the fact that Math was never my favorite subject! Mr. O’Reilly knew how to make it fun. I was so saddened to hear about his passing and send my condolences to his family and friends…many of his former students would like to do the same. Sending many heartfelt thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of Pat's passing. We were "goalie Dad's" for each of our sons. He was a pleasure to be around and always supportive of each of our boys. Gone too soon.

I was extremely saddened to hear of Patrick's passing. I worked with him at Camp Oratam for many years and remember him as a terrific counselor and program director.
My deepest condolences to his family and friends, and also to those at the OZone, who, I'm certain, lost a mentor, leader and close friend. I saw him in July at John Kenny's Celebration of Life event (former director at Oratam), and Patrick was so proud of his staff at Ozone, and the work that you do.
I will always remember Patrick's optimistic spirit and how he put the needs of others ahead of his own. Wonderful man.

Pat was a consistent friendly face. We met him as our children played roller hockey. I run the local Ashland Youth Soccer League and he allowed us to have a winter indoor season at Ozone, at a reduced rate. He was always so responsive and helpful, very easy to work with in any capacity. He will be missed dearly and I’m so sorry for the families loss.

I knew Pat from the bank and always enjoyed seeing him walk in smiling. A few years ago my boys were having a party over at golf fish swim school and Pat heard me saying I had to go over and pick up the invitations without second thought he said I'll get them ill be that way tomorrow. And he sure did saved me a trip. He will be greatly missed. Prayers to his family I hope your memories bring you comfort.

My deepest condolences to Pat's family. While we were not close in later years he left an indelible mark on me and will be missed. I met Pat over 10 years ago as our daughters were YMCA Indian Princesses. While my son was in Elementary and Middle School attended many Friday night's at the O-Zone. Pat always had a smile on his face, always had a kind word to say and always prepared to make you laugh. For those that know, Pat had many talents. At the top of the list is Simon Says. My greatest memory of Pat with the entire camp in a field playing Simon Says. You could see the joy on his face as he tricked the girls with his rapid fire delivery. "Touch your nose, Simon says touch your nose." Our loss is heavens gain. Rest in Peace Pat.
