Dr. Herbert F. Reilly, Jr.

Dr. Herbert F. Reilly Jr. (Bert), of Glenville and Lake George, most beloved husband of Audrey A. Reilly (Audie) passed away on March 23, 2009 after a courageous battle with brain cancer. 

Born in Flushing, NY to the late Winifred and Herbert F. Reilly Sr., Bert’s childhood was spent in Forest Hills NY.  He graduated in 1952 from Phillips Exeter Academy, Princeton University in 1956 and the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1960.  Dr. Reilly interned at the former Mary Fletcher Hospital in Burlington VT and completed surgical and radiology residencies at the Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown, NY and Hitchcock Hospital in NH.  He also served as a captain and general surgeon in the US Air Force.

Dr. Reilly was an attending radiologist at Ellis Hospital and served as the department chairman from 1980-1991.  He was an associate staff member at Sunnyview Hospital and Nathan Littauer Hospitals.  He was a member of the American College of Radiology, the AMA, the NYS Medical Society, the NYS Radiological Society, the NENY Radiological Society and the AIUM.

Bert was a sensational husband, father and grandfather; his greatest joy was being at his summer home on Lake George with his family and beloved Golden Retriever “Lindy”.  Bert was an avid reader with a great interest in politics; he enjoyed golf, snow skiing, woodworking, music and especially ballroom dancing as a member of Cotillion and the Benedicts dance associations.  He thoroughly enjoyed serving as a recent past President of the Schenectady Symphony Orchestra, the devotion to which was a true passion.

Besides his wife of 50 years, Bert is survived by five very precious sons and daughters-in-law; Bret and Nancy of Niskayuna, Dr. Christopher and Kendall of Delmar, David and Kristine of Stamford Conn., Eric and Rachel of Guilderland and Andrew and Joanne of Somerset, N.J.  Also 13 cherished grandchildren; Brad, Michael, Nathan, Ryan, Kyle, Connor, Aidan, Fiona, Madalena, Gabriel, Kiera, Madison and Joshua’; sister-in-law Barbara Bond (Edward), cousins, nephews and twin great nieces.
The family is deeply grateful for the extra ordinary care and support by Physicians and staff at Ellis Hospital and its residential center.  The loving devotion of “our girls” from the Rely Health Care Center in Niskayuna will always be remembered.

Friends and family are invited to The White Funeral Home, 264 N. Ballston Ave., Scotia from 5-7:30 p.m. on Friday March 27th

Family services and burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that memorial donations can be sent in his honor to Ellis Hospital Foundation, Schenectady Symphony Orchestra, The BHUMC or the Mt. Grove Memorial Church at Huletts Landing NY in care of Bruce and Susan Young, Goldey Rd. Huletts Landing, NY 12841.
