His other son is in L 37. Father was a Lt in L 38 he would wear his coat over his arm. A great fire officer and a great man.

 "The Greatest Generation of Firefighters", as I refer to them, are being called from this earth. And with them goes the some of the Best Firefighters the World has known. Thirty or Forty years ago, these War Years Firefighters were riding the step of Engines and Ladders. For many they fought fires without the use of air packs or portable radios. No air conditioned rigs to cool them from those hot city streets. There was nobody to give them relief at a fire. They often went from one fire to another without a break.

  On a part time basis, I saw what these guys did. I can appreciate the conditions that these War Years Firefighters faced. I will always consider each and every one a part of a very Special Group.

RET FDNY LT GEORGE REILLY.....  E MAIL RECD FROM THE UFOA.....QUOTE.... It is with regret the UFOA announces the passing of Retired Lt. George Reilly E-81, long time firefighter in L-40, and U.S. Army Veteran.
 
George was an outstanding and battle proven firefighter and officer, a wonderful mentor, and a kind gentleman whose inner strength was an inspiration to all who knew him.
 
George is now reunited with his son, FF. Kevin L-40, who perished while working in E-207 as a result of the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center on 09/11/2001.

George was among the cadre of retired fire officers and firefighters who toiled tirelessly searching for victims, including their own sons, at the World Trade Center site in an attempt to bring some comfort to the families of the lost until the very last day of the recovery effort. He was at Ground Zero each and every day that the Department operated there.
 
The UFOA extends our deepest condolences to the Reilly family. We know that the entire FDNY family will keep them in our prayers.
 
Arrangements:
 
Wake:

Monday 11/18 7pm-9pm
 
Tuesday 11/19 2pm-4pm 7pm-9pm


Higgins Funeral Home
 
321 S Main St,

New City, NY 10956
 

Funeral:
 
Wednesday 11/20 10am
 

St. Anthony’s Church

36 West Nyack Road

Nanuet NY 10954 UNQUOTE.
.....................................REST IN PEACE BROTHER.....THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE BOTH MILITARY & FDNY...Continued RIP to Son Kevin...... Anyone who was there often certainly remembers George in his battered ENG*81 LTs Helmet working tirelessly until the last day.

  Thanks Mike for posting that picture. Your pictures tell the stories of what these FDNY War Year Vets did during their careers. Everyone of the names here were a part of it. They fought the fires of New York City during the busiest years in the history of the department.

  And Thank You to Chief JK for posting the names in this thread, so that we can all remember them. And so that we can Honor them for what they did.

  May They Rest in Peace.
