Timothy John Reilly-“TJ”– the beloved son of John P. and Patricia D. Reilly passed away unexpectedly on Thurs, Oct 19, 2017 at home. Tim was born on August 5, 1977 in Flushing, NY. He, his brother and parents moved to East Hampton in 1984 where Tim continued his elementary education in East Hampton.He graduated from East Hampton High School in 1995 and was a Member of the National Honor Society. He continued his education at Boston University and graduated in 1999 with degree in history. He then attended the University of CT School of Law and graduated in 2002 passing The Bar on his first try. Tim was never enamored by his law education and instead did various jobs settling into Mechanical work at RM Bradley Management, which he enjoyed deeply. He loved working with his hands, doing wood projects, making handmade knives and almost any project he decided to pursue. He loved music and always had his ear buds in. He was an avid hiker and loved the outdoors going on many camping trips with his family. He was a Boy Scout all the way, and attained the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop 8, East Hampton. Tim tended his garden every summer with TLC. He enjoyed reading just about anything but was very fond of history and if asked a question you would surely get a very detailed answer.
Besides his parents Tim is survived by his paternal Grandmother Elizabeth Reilly of Port Washington, NY, his brother Sean and his wife Shari and his very special niece Anya of Norwalk, CT and many Aunts and Uncles and cousins in NY,NJ, LI, and Fl
