Thomas Joseph Rielli, 76, of Quakertown formerly of Philadelphia died July 14, 2021 in St. Luke’s Hospice House, Bethlehem. He was the husband of Linda (McKelvey) Rielli. They were married 49 years last September. In addition to his wife he is survived by a daughter Danielle Rielli, two sons Thomas W. (Sharon), & Nicholas. Two grandchildren Peyton & Carson. Born in Philadelphia, Pa he was the son of the late Thomas C. & Jane (Cappiello) Rielli. He was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army and served during Vietnam War. After proudly serving his county Thomas became the Operation Environmental Engineering Assistant for Cobham Defense Electronic Systems for 30 years until retiring. As a true “Philly” guy, Tom loved the Philadelphia Eagles (except if they were losing, in which case he would turn the game off in the first quarter). He had a great sense of humor and could never pass on a good fart joke. He made others laugh and had the ability to embellish his stories with his wit and charm. Tom was meticulous in nature, with both his appearance and his possessions. You would always see him well-groomed wearing an ironed polo shirt. His greatest pride though was with his family, whom he loved dearly and spoke of highly. Tom was the husband, father and grandfather everyone could count on. Memorial services will be held on Thursday July 22, 2021 at 1 :30 P. M. in the C. R. Strunk Funeral Home, Inc. 821 West Broad Street, Quakertown Pa. 18951 (www.crstrunk.com).
