O’REILLY, Matthew






Matt leaves behind his dearly loved wife Patricia, to deeply mourn his peaceful, yet incredibly unexpected passing on Monday, March 6 2023.

He also will be greatly missed by his Canadian family of in-laws, including Linda & Don, Neil & Cheryl, and Judy & Kevin. Matt’s seven Canadian nieces & nephews, Ryan, Dustin, Genele, Brandy, Lacey, Danielle and Brennen along with their families will miss their much  loved ‘Uncle Matt’, who was always ready to tease them and make them laugh at his foolish antics.

Matt was predeceased by his cherished parents, Matthew & Teresa; and his sister-in-law Mary, beloved wife of Phil.

Matt’s very large family in Ireland are also mourning his loss at this time. Matt is survived by his siblings: Phil, Paddy (Mary), Teresa (Carl), Hugh (Ann), Marie (Sam), Tom (Catherine) and Martin.

Matt maintained close ties with his 25 nephews and nieces in Ireland and tried his very best to attend as many of their special occasions in Ireland as he possibly could. As their own families grew, so did Matt’s delight in the opportunity to tease even more children.

Cremation has taken place and a Funeral Mass will be held on March 25, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. in St. Albert Funeral Home, 9 Muir Drive.

In lieu of flowers Memorial Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation 2300 Yonge Street Suite 1200 Toronto On M4P 1E4.
