The Loss of a Friend

The City of Troy lost a great friend Friday evening when Joseph Reilly died in a car accident on I-90.

Though I only knew him for a short time, the discussions I had with him were always genuine, and the work he did benefited the City of Troy in more ways than he ever knew. His desire to improve the Troy Boys and Girls Club and bring it back to its proud traditions is something I always admired.

He will be missed greatly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family, friends, and all loved ones.
