As the voluntary chief operating officer of Division 5, Reardon oversaw its safe boating courses and search and rescue operations, conducted vessel safety checks and monitored security breaches.
Reardon was also a member of the city Police Department’s Harbor Unit Auxiliary.
Reardon, born in Staten Island, moved to Queens when he was 25. He attended Pace University and the American Institute of Banking. A professional financial adviser, he was most recently a vice president of Commerzbank in Manhattan.
He is survived by his wife, two sons, daughter and three grandchildren.
