Myself, Pat and all our family send our love and condolences to all of Paddy's family. He made us feel part of the family too in all the years we knew him. We have so many wonderful memories of him. For a small man in stature, he was a giant amongst men. We will always remember him with a smile on our faces. God Bless Paddy. The older you got, the faster you were!

Paddy

One I will always remember is us wake boarding across a swimming pool behind a van after leaving the night club, the next day at briefing paddy had me going for about an hour, I was banned from this race and maybe future races, good wind up I fell for it hook line and sinker.

PR - Celebration of Life!

For those wishing to attend, full details of the arrangements for Paddy Reilly's Funeral are attached. There will be a service at St. Johns Roman Catholic Church, Gravesend on Friday 15th March at 1:30pm, followed by a burial in his home village of Cliffe at St. Helen's Church. Everyone is invited to attend a 'Celebration of his Life' at his local boating club, Kent Boat & Ski Club, where he was Vice Commodore in his early boating days.

At the request of his family, donations to the Intensive Care Unit of Medway Hospital are preferred instead of floral tributes and these can be made along with your messages here http://www.justgiving.com/paddyreilly. A memory page has also been created to store your memories, thoughts and funny anecdotes, along with photos.videos for posterity on http://www.facebook.com/InMemoryOfPaddyReilly.
