Scott A. Reilly, 64, of Muncy, died Thursday, Aug. 25, 2016, at his home surrounded by his family.

He was born Aug. 2, 1952, in Danville, a son of the late Margaret (Hogendobler) Deitrich and Donald Deitrich. On Nov. 5, 1994, he married the former Dusteen "Dusty" Bower, who survives. Together they celebrated 21 years of marriage.

Scott was a 1970 graduate of Danville High School and received a bachelors degree from the former Williamsport Area Community College, now Penn College.

He worked in management for PP&L, Montoursville, retiring after 43 years.

Scott was a veteran serving honorably in the U.S. Army. He was a member of the Crossroads Church of the Nazarene, Milton.

The most important thing in Scott's life was his family, where he was affectionately known by many as a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend and mentor.

Scott is survived by one son and daughter-in-law, Scott Allen II and Rebecca Reilly, of Carrollton, Va.; one daughter, Carey Nicole Raleigh, of Virginia Beach, Va.; three sisters and two brothers-in-law, Toni and Pat Toomey, and Jan and John Cosgrove, all of Lancaster, and Lori Reilly, of Danville; four grandchildren, Nick, Zachary, Adyson and Chloe; his father, John Reilly, of Danville; and 17 nieces and nephews, Tammy, Sabrina, Nicole, Adam, Jessica, Aaron, Mackenzie, Lauren, Sage, Dylan, Cassie, Maggie, Emily, Ryan, Ashley, Nathan and Liam.

In addition to his mother and step father, he was preceded in death by one brother, Steve Reilly; and one niece, Becky.

A graveside service with full military honors will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at the Muncy Cemetery, 204 E. Penn St., Muncy, with his minister, Pastor B. Keith Mowen, officiating.

The family will provide the flowers and suggests memorial contributions in Scott's name be made to Susquehanna Hospice. Please make checks payable to Susquehanna Health Foundation and mail to 1001 Grampian Boulevard, Williamsport, PA 17701.

The family is being assisted by Grenoble's, 121 S. Main St., Muncy.
