Reilly, Gerald Dominic
Dr. Gerald Dominic Reilly - Pueblo Chieftain - May 10, 2002 - Dr. Gerald Dominic Reilly, 66, of Pueblo, died April 2 in his home and surrounded by his family. He is celebrated as a loving husband, devoted father and grandfather, skilled neurosurgeon and compassionate physician who cared for his patients, their families and the medical staff with whom he worked. Dr. Reilly was born in Detroit, Mich., on Feb. 25, 1936. He earned a bachelor of science from the University of Detroit in 1958 and a Doctor of Medicine from Wayne State University in 1962. He served as a flight surgeon with the United States Navy in Southeast Asia from 1963–1966. He then completed a residency in neurosurgery at Henry Ford Hospital in 1972, including one year as senior neurosurgical registrar at the Royal Infirmary in Sheffield, England, before joining the medical staff at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital in 1972. Enticed by the American dream of a better life for his family and by the spirit of the West, Dr. Reilly came to Pueblo from Michigan with his young family and made his life out of healing others. He was a revered mentor and role model through his role as father and husband, his medical practice, his spirituality and devout faith, and his community leadership. His support of civic projects includes the establishment of the Nancy Crafton Farm Worker/Migrant Worker Endowment Fund, donations to the Catholic Diocese of Pueblo and St. Pius X Parish, the Reilly Family Gallery at the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center and Harp's gateway fountain. Dr. Reilly was a master of neurosurgery, a pioneer of new technique in patient care and neuroscience and a physician of international renown. Dr. Reilly's accomplishments span more than 30 years of service to Southern Colorado and the remaining USA. His legacy of care in the Pueblo community began with his leadership in opening the neurointensive care unit at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital and in bringing the first CT scanner to Pueblo — both were firsts in the state of Colorado. Dr. Reilly helped create a world-class level of care within the community. Dr. Reilly served as chief of surgery at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital from 1979-1981. He also served in the positions of president, treasurer and board member of the Pueblo County Medical Society and as a board member of the Colorado Medical Society and the Pueblo City-County Health Department. Additionally, Dr. Reilly served on staff at Parkview Episcopal Hospital and at the Colorado Institute of Mental Health. He was an assistant clinical professor at the University of Colorado Medical Center, Denver, and the University of New Mexico. Dr. Reilly was a member of nine medical associations, including the Neurosurgical Society of America's Senior Society. Above all, Dr. Reilly held the ethical treatment of the terminally ill in high regard. It was a personal mission to understand and teach others about pain management at the end of life, and fight against physician-assisted suicide. Dr. Reilly wrote and spoke extensively about the topic across the nation and was appointed to a state legislative focus group to identify and characterize pain as well as explore methods of pain treatment. Dr. Reilly will also be remembered for his selfless philanthropy and spiritual, scientific and world exploration. He was a man of wisdom maintaining humor, practicality and common sense at all times. Dr. Reilly was a bright light who lives on through his contributions to those with the good fortune to have known him. The doctors who cared for him dubbed him the "immortal man," in wonder at the vigor with which he lived during his battle for life. Indeed he is immortal. Dr. Reilly lives on through his family, his friends, his patients and his philanthropic beneficiaries in everything they do. Dr. Reilly is survived by his wife, Rosemary; five children, John (Stephanie), Michael, Kevin, Erin Gibbs (Gordon) and Colleen Perkins (Jack); and two grandchildren, Carlin and Jack. Dr. Reilly will lie in state at St. Pius X Catholic Church, 3130 Morris Ave., from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 4.

Renkemeyer, Robert
Robert Renkemeyer - Colorado Springs Gazette - February 9, 1989 - Pueblo Explosion Kills Man at Airport Industrial Park/ Pressure Kettle's Lid Blasts Through Roof - Pueblo - An equipment consultant was killed Wednesday evening when a "giant pressure cooker" being tested at a Kaiser plant exploded, projecting its lid through the roof, authorities said. Three other workers in the Kaiser Space Products building escaped unhurt, authorities said. The explosion occurred at 6:30 p.m. in the structure at the Airport Industrial Park. The victim was identified as Robert Renkemeyer, 66, of Pensacola, Fla., said Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer. Renkemeyer was standing near a hydroclave, which is a steam-driven pressure kettle used for curing aerospace parts, when it exploded and "the lid blew off," said Kaiser President Bill Sidney. Pueblo Fire Department spokesman Charlie Stimmel said the 14,000-pound lid blasted through the roof and landed in a parking lot 50 or 60 feet away. The west and south walls of the building also were blown out. "It's impossible to know how the pressure vessel blew up," Sidney told a group of Kaiser workers who swarmed around his car. Stimmel said, "The pressure vessel had 1,000 pounds per square inch of pressure and was being fed 310-degree steam when it blew. Right now we're thinking it was some type of pressure buildup." He emphasized that the accident was not caused by a natural gas explosion. Earlier, Pueblo police Sgt. Robert Williams had reported that the object launched through the roof was a rocket nose cone. Sidney said Renkemeyer was a representative of the company that built the hydroclave. "It was the first time we ran it (the hydroclave) at full pressure," he said. Pueblo County sheriff's deputy Richard Bregar, one of the first to arrive at the scene, said, "What an eerie feeling . . .it just shook your whole body. I heard the explosion and saw the south walls of the building fall down." The Kaiser plant was built at a cost of approximately $5 million. Investigators said about half the plant was damaged. In addition to the manufacturing area, some of the administrative offices were damaged. Colorado Springs Gazette - February 10, 1989 - Officials Search for Clues to Fatal Explosion in Pueblo - An investigator from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration joined Pueblo fire officials Thursday to search for clues in an explosion that killed a man at a Pueblo aerospace plant Wednesday. Robert Renkemeyer, 66, of Pensacola, Fla., died when a hydroclave - described as a huge pressure cooker - exploded while being tested at Kaiser Space Products. Pueblo Fire Department spokesman Charlie Stimmel said fire officials estimate the explosion caused $1.5 million worth of damage to the building and $500,000 in damage to its contents. The Kaiser plant, which opened last summer, was built at a cost of approximately $5 million. A company news release said the damage was "severe, but repairable." The hydroclave, which is approximately 9 feet in diameter and 8 feet long, is a steam-driven pressure kettle used for curing parts of rocket nozzles, said Kaiser President Bill Sidney. It was in the final stages of testing prior to its acceptance by the company when the explosion occurred. Renkemeyer, a consultant for Bondtech Corporation Corp. of St. Louis, the company marketing the hydroclave, was assisting in the test. "For reasons unknown at this time, the lid of the hydroclave separated from the main body, releasing the pressure into the plant area, forming a shock wave much like an explosion," said a Kaiser news release. Renkemeyer was standing near the hydroclave and was killed instantly by the shock wave, Sidney said. Five other workers and a security guard in the building were not injured. At the time of the explosion, the hydroclave was operating under pressure of 1,000 pounds per square inch and at a temperature of 300 degrees Fahrenheit. The news release said the conditions were "well within the design parameters of the hydroclave, which had been tested at substantially higher pressure during its manufacture." The release said the vessel had been operated at the same pressure and temperature levels several times during the past few days and had been operating at full pressure and temperature for more than 20 hours when the malfunction occurred. The release said Renkemeyer "was one of the world's leading technical experts in the installation and operation of pressure vessels" and had installed the same type of equipment many times. Eric Ramirez, a spokesman for OSHA in Denver, said the plant had no history of safety violations or accidents. "It was a fairly new plant," he said. The accident was the second at the Kaiser plant in the past week, according to Pueblo Fire Department records. On Feb. 2, an employee of T&T Electric in Pueblo was treated for carbon dioxide inhalation after a piece of equipment spewed gas through the plant. Natural gas is used in the plant's autoclaves to cure carbon wrappings on rocket nozzles. Sidney said the two incidents were not related and no gas was involved in Wednesday's explosion. The plant supplies rocket nozzles for two of the three primary launch vehicles used by NASA, the Air Force and private satellite operations. It originally was built to handle a growing demand for nozzles for the SRAM missile and the small solid boosters strapped onto McDonnell Douglas' Delta Rocket. Sidney was unable to say Thursday how much the damage would affect the plant's ability to fulfill its contracts. When plans for the plant were announced in late 1987, it was to be an extension of the Kaiser Aerotech plant in Oakland, Calif. Then the parent company, Kaiser Aerospace and Electronics, won a contract to supply the rocket nozzles for Martin Marietta's Titan rocket. The Pueblo plant was designed to be a separate division of the company called Kaiser Space Products.
