“John Henry Matthew Reilly, also known as Jack. The brightest light in the world went out,” Caitlin Reilly said in an Instagram post.
“Imagine the best man in the world. Now imagine that this man is your father,” she wrote. “I’m so grateful it was mine.”
In a career spanning more than 30 years, Reilly appeared in How the World Turns, Sunset Beach, Passions, and Dallas. For 11 years, he played the role of Sean Donnie in General Hospital.
Reilly survived her five daughters, Caitlin told CNN.
“He was the greatest man in his life,” she told CNN. “A true gentleman. Good to everyone. And he loved his girls above all.”
