Joshua E. O’Reilly
Joshua E. O’ReillyHuntingJoshua E. O’Reilly 45, of Richwood, died unexpectedly early Monday morning January 29, 2018 at his home in Richwood.

He was born May 13, 1972 in Zanesville to Dennis O’Reilly and Mary Lou (Middlesworth).

Josh was a 1990 graduate of the North Union High School. He was a man you could count on, he was the glue that held things together. He was a proud father of Caitlin Drew who was his sunshine! He was blessed with two beautiful grandkids whom he adored. He married Deena (Hone) on July 4, 2014 and she survives.

Also surviving are his mom and stepfather: Mary Lou and Michael McDonald of Richwood, father: Dennis O’Reilly of Orange City, Florida, his daughter: Caitlin (Robert) Riegel of Goldsboro, North Carolina, grandchildren: Royce and Winry Riegel
two stepdaughters: Anne (Jay) Young of Fort Worth, Texas and Kaley (Calen) Crawford of Dayton, stepson: Jackson Cottingham of Richwood
siblings: Tisha (Michael) Beeching of Marysville, Toby (Sarah) O'Reilly of Richwood and Brittany (Anthony) Roberts of Prospect
nieces and nephews: Alyssa, Alec, Owen, Broden, Christian and Preston

He was a hard worker and never said "I can't" he was a talented man who could make anything with his two hands that he set his mind to. Josh was known to many as a protector and someone that would always be there to help. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing and time with family. His love language was cooking a nice meal, and he was so good at it.
He spent time traveling as a mill right foreman, working for Reliant Mechanical in East Liberty for the last 8 years.

Funeral services will be held Saturday February 3, 2018 at 11:00 am at the Stofcheck-Ballinger Funeral Home in Richwood, Pastor Greg Kah will officiate, burial will follow in the Byhalia Cemetery, Friends may call Friday from 4-7 pm at the funeral home in Richwood

Josh was a great friend that I was blessed to have spent my childhood with. As he was my older Brother Rogers friend and I was the annoying little sister that had hearts in her eyes over Josh.lol Then as I got older we became good friends. He was always so sweet with a kind word for everyone. I'm so sad to hear he's gone. It's way to soon. Prayers and hugs for Josh's family and friends. God bless.

I am so sorry to hear this. I use to watch the kids when Mary Lou was going to school. I have some great memories of the kids. One day Josh was going to run away from home and it took me 4 hours but I talked him out of it.  He was always watching out for the younger kids. I like to think at he is still watching over all of you. God is always there and He will watch over you too.

Dear Mary Lou--I heard of Josh's death quite by accident.  You can't imagine how sorry I am.  To lose a child is a big burden, but to lose him unexpectedly must be much more so.  I remember all of your kids when they were small.  Just remember that God is with you.  Lean on Him, allow Him to comfort you and grant you the peace that passes all understanding.  I'll be praying for you.  With all my love,  Peg
