Allan J. Sullivan died peacefully at Lakeshore General Hospital on November 10th, 2020. He passed away with dignity and grace, the same way he dealt with all life’s experiences.

He was a devoted and loving husband to the love of his life, Claire Juneau. Claire & Al enjoyed a special bond and 57 wonderful years of marriage. He was the best Dad anyone could ask for to his three children Lynn (Jeff Houston), Diane Parsons and Ray (Karen Campbell), who all loved him deeply. He was a dedicated grandpa to his nine grandchildren, Spencer, Matthew, Graeme, Jessica, Trevor, Emily, Connor, Carter and Kent. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews to whom he was affectionately known as “Uncle Al the kiddies’ pal.”

Allan was born in Montreal as the youngest child to the late Evelyn McCormick and Allan James Sullivan Sr. He was predeceased by brothers Jake (Sandra James) and Bill (Phyllis Rawley), sister Ann and sister-in-law Lily Juneau (Bob Faust). He is survived by his sister-in-law Phyllis Rawley and his brothers-in-law Philippe Juneau (Carol Locke), Robert Juneau (Lucie Doire) and Bob Faust.

Allan’s career started at a young age in transport and logistics. He was well respected in his business career as in his personal life, for his hard work, integrity and honesty. He achieved success as President and CEO of SLW Distribution Centres. He was also proud of his accomplishments as one of the founding members and President of the Canadian Warehousing Association.

He loved weekends and vacations at our family cottage on Lac Archambault in Saint-Donat. He worked hard and played hard! His pastimes included backgammon, cards (especially bridge), and golf - all of which he played with a competitive spirit! He loved boating and watersports in the summer and during the winter, skiing at La Reserve.

In retirement he was a happy snowbird, spending winters in Florida and enjoying Worthington Country Club in Bonita Springs. In summer, he enjoyed being home in Beaconsfield, and golf at Summerlea Golf and Country Club. He proudly shot a hole-in-one at each club. Due to concerns about gatherings at this time of pandemic, the family has decided not to have a visitation. Please take a few moments to share your stories, memories and pictures via email to AllanSullivan2020@gmail.com.

Claire, We are so sorry to hear that Al had lost his battle. What a journey it has been for both of you. I remember Al as a gentleman and a gentle soul and always enjoyed his sense of humour. I hope to see you in the new year when things have settled and at the very least, at the course in the spring.

Dear Mrs. Sullivan and Sullivan family,
It was with a very heavy heart that I learned the sad news from Tina about Mr. Sullivan's passing. I remember vividly his very big smile. Way back when, we had gotten together at your cottage, where I recall a very narrow ramp up to your dock, and Mr. Sullivan took us out for a spin in the boat. I believe he had named it Lydira (after all three of the kids).
I am sure you will look back on all the wonderful, good times you spent together. May those memories help you through this most difficult time. He was a wonderful man, with a beautiful family.
Much love.
Mary

Claire and family,

Our deepest sympathies on the loss of your husband and father. He is now at peace. Claire, you and Ali had so many beautiful years together and raised a wonderful family. I'm sure he's trying to get into our family's heavenly bridge game! Your mother might give him a chance with our aunts, but they will kick his ass. God Bless and our prayers are with you all during these difficult times.

My condolences to the whole family on Mr. Sullivan's passing.

I always enjoyed my time playing backgammon with him (I never won). I'm sure in his little booklet I still owe him a few bucks

We became good friends at the age of 7 years old when we played Pee-Wee hockey for Trenholm Park with your brother Bill as the coach. You went on to marry my cousin Claire, the best decision you ever made. We shared many good times together over 50 years and I will miss you. R.I.P. my good friend, I'm sure you will be very busy greeting all of your family and many friends when you reach the Kingdom.

I was very saddened to hear of the passing of my Uncle Al. He was my super intelligent helpful Uncle, always up for a debate with me, be it global warming or the state of Canadian politics. I always looked forward to his lively and informative e-mails. I often turned to him for his opinions on the state of world affairs, as he was usually the most well informed and well researched on so many subjects. I enjoyed visiting him and his family in Montreal, and had hoped to visit him and Aunt Claire in Naples, Florida one day. He will be dearly missed. My deepest sincere condolences to the family.
