Sean Andrew O’Reilly

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Sean Andrew O’Reilly, age 35 years, in Calgary on 16 September 2018.

Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, he was the son of Charles O’Reilly and Corinne (nee Bona) O’Reilly.

He is survived by his siblings Meghan O’Reilly, Brian O’Reilly, Kristen (Scott) Faulkner, along with a large extended family of many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Sean was “Uncle Sean” to many friends’ children, was a lover of animals and passionate about sports.  He experienced the far reaches of Canada’s Northern and Western wilderness in his work, and truly loved being in nature. Sean had a unique sense of humour and loved to make friends laugh. He went to great lengths for friends and family.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, Bedford. (902-835-4212) A private service for family and friends will be held on Wednesday 26 September.
