Rockland — The Rockland City Council held a moment of silence May 19 in memory of former Councilor Patrick Reilley who died recently.

Reilley was elected to the City Council in 1996 and served until 1999.

He and Susanne Ward founded Second Read Books and Coffee (now called Rock City Books and Coffee) in Rockland and had operated the business since August 1992. Reilley also opened Rock City Coffee Roasters in 1999.

A full obituary is expected to be submitted to VillageSoup.

A real loss to our community and to us who knew him. A true gentleman who cared for people and was not afraid to face his own frailties. We will all miss you Patrick but you will live on in the many lives you touched.
