Funeral Arrangements for our friend and comrade Dick Reilly, Irish Internationalist

Information regarding services for Richard “Dick” Reilly:


It is with great sadness that the AAAN announces the passing of our dear friend and colleague Richard “Dick” Reilly last night after a two year battle with lung cancer.  Dick was a familiar face for anyone who is a part of any of the city’s numerous social justice movements, he could be found on the front lines of almost every rally and every event.  He was especially close to the Chicagoland Palestinian and Arab community where he spent years as a friend, activist, and mentor to many.  We offer our deepest condolences to his partner Christine Geovanis and to the Chicagoland community who has lost a kind, caring, and committed fighter.   Funeral arangements will be announced to our list as soon as they are made. Rest in peace dear friend you will be truly missed.


The Arab American Action Network,

Dick Reilly, Center, At Pro-Palestine march
