EAST BRIDGEWATER--------Richard J. “Sully” Sullivan, 61, of East Bridgewater, formerly of Easton, died Sunday, October 17, 2010 at Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital after a period of failing health. He was the husband of Jacquelyn (Brawders) Sullivan for 30 years.
Born in Kyoto, Japan, on May 28, 1949, a son of the late James L. and Shirley M. (Lounge) Sullivan, he was raised and educated in his early childhood around the world because of his fathers military service to his country. His family later settled in West Bridgewater before moving to Easton. A 1968 graduate of Oliver Ames High School, he played both football and basketball at Oliver Ames.
Upon graduating Sully began working for the Town of Easton DPW Department. Shortly after he moved to Arizona and California, before moving back and settling in East Bridgewater. During the late 1970’s and early 1980’s he owned and operated his own contracting business known as Mad Dog Painting.
For the past 15 years he has been a quality control inspector for Comcast. Sully was a longtime member and trustee of the Vega Club in Brockton. An avid walker, he was a horticulturist, and enjoyed being a collector.
In addition to his wife Jacquelyn, he is survived by two sisters, Maja Sullivan Sne’yers and Gracia Sullivan both of Holland; and many nieces and nephews.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend Memorial visitation hours in Kane Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 605 Washington Street (Rte.138) Easton, on Saturday, October 23, 2010 from 4-7:30 p.m. followed by a Memorial Service at 7:30 p.m. Donations in Sully’s memory may be sent to the American Cancer Society, 5 Manley Street, West Bridgewater, MA. 02379.
