Hagåtña, Guam – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero and Lieutenant Governor Josh Tenorio issue the following statements on the passing of former Senator Michael Reidy: 

“We join former Senator Reidy’s family and the island of Guam in mourning the passing of Former Senator Michael J. Reidy. Senator Reidy dedicated his life in service to others, beginning with his volunteer work with the Peace Corps. When he made Guam his home in 1974, he began a long career in the Government of Guam, eventually becoming a senator in the Guam Legislature,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “He was one of the most active public servants and intelligent participants in the community. While we are saddened by his loss, we know his work will continue to inspire our future generations.” 

“Beyond his service in public policy, Senator Reidy was an avid athlete and advocate for the sports community. He was a part of the Guam Amateur Sports Federation, the Guam Water Polo Club, the Guam Running Club, the Guam Fishing Derby, Guam Fishermen’s Co-op, and the Guam Fishing and Boating Association, just to name a few. His enthusiasm for sports led him to become the first president of the Guam National Olympic Committee,” added Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “Senator Reidy was someone with great character and was determined to leave his community better than he found it. We all have a lot to learn from his ability to work with others for a common purpose, and I remain proud to have called him a friend.”
