Dr. Brian Kiley, a 37-year resident of Sea Cliff, died peacefully in his sleep, this past Thursday, at his family home in Cincinnati. Dr. Kiley headed a medical team at the Belleview-NYU Medical Center dealing specifically with infant cardiology and was also part of a team of specialists who discovered the rubella vaccine in the early '60s, thus eradicating the deadly virus. After completing his undergraduate work at Harvard University he enlisted in the Army in WWII and served valiantly as a Lieutenant in a reconnaissance unit in the Philippines. After the war he attended Harvard Medical School and eventually settled in Sea Cliff to raise his family. Dr. Kiley tirelessly attended to his wife, Lu, for the last 10 years of her life, before she eventually succumbed to diabetes. In his years after retirement he volunteered his time to numerous organizations in Sea Cliff such as the Good of the Village, Sea Cliff Landmarks and the Friends of Spooky Park where he spent five years as park chaperone. Dr. Kiley's curmudgeon-like exterior belied an honorable, loving soul, which touched the hearts of countless Sea Cliff residents who were fortunate enough to have had the privilege to know him. He is survived by his two daughters, Laura Kiley and Professor Doris Kiley, and a brother, Dr. Charles Kiley.
