I just learned of the passing of Stephen Sullivan, and am absolutely heartbroken. He was truly an exceptional person, kind, caring, exuberant, fun loving, witty, smart. .the list of compliments goes on and on! I always enjoyed seeing him in the office, and caring for him all these years was both a privilege and pleasure for me. I shall miss his smile, and his stories, and his harmonica, especially on my birthday! He always planned his appointments so he could serenade me; he made our whole office smile! My deepest condolences to all the Sullivan family at this very sad and difficult time.

Stephen will always be remembered by me as well as his other classmates at St. Columbkilles grammar and high schools as a great guy with a friendly word and smile for everyone during those years. He and I, ultimately ..and some years later, shared our personal experiences in the U.S. Marine Corps, and stayed in touch with each other ..over all the ensuing decades.
I'm proud to have known him!
Semper Fi', Marine!

My deepest condolences to the Sullivan family. I worked for many years with Stephen in state government at ORI. I hope that the memories of the good times will help you through this difficult time. I will always remember Stephen's good nature and spirit. I'll never forget his singing and musical ability.
