In Memory - Ed "Caith" Reilly


May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sunshine warm your face,
the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Edward "Caith" Thomas Reilly IV was born November 11, 1975, and passed away February 3, 2020 after an accident a few weeks earlier. He lived in the Saint Louis area for most of his life and was working as a lawyer at the time of his passing.

Caith was the loving husband of Anne Reilly (nee: Bielke) and beloved father of Kiera, Norah and Thomas Reilly.

Survived by his mother, Jan Reilly, his sister Jennifer (Todd Sutker) Reilly, father-in-law and mother-in-law, Richard Bielke and Kitty Winn, brother-in-law William (Elizabeth) Bielke, niece Brooklyn Bielke, and sister-in-law Stephanie (Bob) Chase.

Preceded in death by his father, Tom Reilly, and his brother, Matthew Reilly.

If we’re being accurate, Caith was my brother-in-law-in-law. I know that there are many people who could tell a much more complete story about him than I can, and I hope to eventually get some of those thoughts, stories, and photos onto this web site. There’s always room for more. For now, you’ll get my limited perspective and a few photos I was able to gather.
