PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS — It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to John Andrew Reiling, Jr. who passed away early Thursday morning, September 7, 2017, at the age of 73.
John was raised in Dayton, Ohio, as the second oldest of six brothers and sisters. He graduated Chaminade High School in 1962. He met the love of his life, Marilyn Preuss, while at University of Dayton. They recently celebrated 49 happy years of marriage.
They were residents of Parsippany for over 30 years where they raised their four children.
Throughout his career in Sales and Marketing for office products, he was employed by AB Dick, AR Meeker, Gestetner, Riso, and Ricoh.
The great joys in his later years were his eleven grandchildren, of whom John was so proud. He could regularly be seen at the grandkids’ sporting events and school performances, and would never fail to mention how talented they all are. He also enjoyed his weekly golf games with friends.
He is survived by his loving wife, Marilyn; his daughter, Jennette and her husband Jay McChesney with their children Jordan, James and Joe; his daughter, Tina and her husband Kevin Murphy with their children Jake, Reagan, and Scott; his son, Jack and his wife Nelly Ingraham with their children Chuck and Marty; and his son, Jason and his wife Kara (May) with their children Alex, Carter, and Kate.
They will be celebrating John on Monday, September 11, at 1:00 p.m. at St. Magdalen Church, 105 Mine Street, Flemington.
To know John was to love him. His spirit, humor and compassion live on in his children and grandchildren. He will be missed by all.
