Phillip Scott O'Reilly Obituary

Phillip Scott O'Reilly passed away peacefully on August 2nd, 2023, in his home in Bay Minette, Alabama. He was born in Mobile, Alabama, on October the 22nd, 1974 to his parents Francis and Betty O'Reilly. Phillip attended Theodore High School class of 1993. Though he was a notable entrepreneur and businessman in the area, those closest to him knew his passion for life came from the joys of singing karaoke, boating, playing cornhole, going to the gym, and traveling the world with those he loved. While Phillip loved to enjoy his time with his family and friends, learning the true love of Jesus was his crowning achievement.

Amid all the trial and tribulation Phillip went through, with a horrible disease known to many. He continued with a smile on his face every single day, and he lived every moment as if it were his last. Phillip had many "mottos" or his own sayings that he lived by, but he also uplifted others through those as well. "Stop trying so hard to fit in.", "You were born to stand out!", "There is only a few things I can do in this life, and one of them is drive.", "If I was any better, I'd be you!", and last but most importantly "Life O'Reilly!"

Phillip is preceded in death by; his parents, Francis Xavier O'Reilly and Betty Ruth O'Reilly.

Phillip is survived by; his wife, Rebekah Elizabeth O'Reilly of Bay Minette, AL; his sons, Christian Scott O'Reilly of Jacksonville, FL, Phillip Scott O'Reilly Jr. of Mobile, AL, and Timothy "Kade" O'Reilly of Mobile, AL; his daughter, Madison Lynn O'Reilly of Mobile, AL; his sisters, Fran O'Reilly of Mobile, AL, Mary O'Reilly of Vancleave, MS, Betty Monroe of Vancleave, MS, Tammie Shankle of Dallas, TX, and Ruby Neighbors of Dallas, TX; As well as a host of friends
