Obituary for Jerry Reidy

Jerry Reidy
Jerry Reidy
Scotch Plains
Mr. Gerard Cornelius Reidy Sr. passed away Thursday April 26th, 2018, surrounded by family at his home in Scotch Plains. He was 80 years old.
Born in Queens, NY to Jerome and Lillian Reidy in 1938, Jerry grew up in the Parkchester neighborhood in the Bronx, NY. Formerly a resident of Jersey City and Roselle Park, he had lived in Westfield for more than 40 years before moving to Scotch Plains in 2012. Mr. Reidy served his country in the U.S. Navy, aboard the USS Forrestal, where he fostered a passion for world travel and basketball. Jerry went on to attend Seton Hall, where he continued to play basketball, and earned his degree in English in 1964. Mr. Reidy had a long and successful career in the textile industry, and his work took him all over the world, to all but one continent, well over 100 countries, and sometimes 8 states in a day. An avid fan of all sports, Jerry was especially fond of the Big East Conference, though he was never happier than when attending one of his grandchildren’s events.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Eileen Reidy; by their children Gerard Reidy Jr. (Medea), Nicole Murphy (Mike), Alexis Reidy Peterson (Jon) and by his beloved grandchildren Alexis, Veronica, Rita, Marisa, Jack, and Luke and his beloved nieces and nephews. Visitation will be from 4-7 pm Tuesday May 1st at the Dooley Colonial Home 556 Westfield Ave. Westfield. The funeral Mass will begin at 10:30 am Wednesday in St. Helen’s Church in Westfield. In lieu of flowers please make a donation in Jerry’s name to the Wounded Warriors Project at
