Obituary for James J. Reilly, Jr.

James Joseph Reilly Jr., 84, of Ludlow, passed away on May 16, 2022. Son of the late James and Pelagia (Migdoll) Reilly, he was a longtime resident of Indian Orchard before moving to Ludlow 43 years ago and was a proud United States Army Veteran.
He was employed at the Hampden County Sheriff’s Department as Assistant Deputy Superintendent of Operations for 34 years from where he retired in 1993, and during this time, he became known as Major Reilly. He then worked per diem as a Consultant for Security Systems Auditor before fully retiring in 1996.
In his spare time, he was an avid fisherman at the Quabbin, Lake Ontario and Moosehead Lake in ME. He was also an avid hunter with trips up to the Alagash in ME with his hunting buddies; and Jim will also be fondly remembered for his love of cigars. James is survived by his wife of 53 years Suzanne Elizabeth Reilly (Dynak), daughter Rebecca Rondeau, grandson Aaden Rondeau, many loving extended family members, his dear neighbors, and many friends. The family wished to extend a special thanks to Dr. Iyer and the nursing staff at the Infusion Center for all the passionate care James received.
Visiting hours for James are on Monday, May 23rd from 4:00-6:00pm in Ludlow Funeral Home. Funeral services are on Tuesday, May 24th at 10am from the funeral home with Liturgy of Christian Burial at 11:00am in Christ the King Parish followed by burial at 1:00pm in Massachusetts Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Agawam. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in James’s memory to Sister Caritas Cancer Center.
