Timothy J. O'Sullivan Jr., 54, South Canaan, died Thursday peacefully at home surrounded by his family.

Timmy was born April 6, 1960, in Staten Island, N.Y., to Timothy O'Sullivan Sr. and the late Janice Ihnken O'Sullivan, who passed away in 1988. He graduated from Honesdale High School in 1978. He worked for the Lake Ariel Post Office for more than 25 years.
