Edward Francis Sullivan
August 26, 1932 – April 20, 2018
Edward Francis Sullivan 85 of Centerville, MA passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Cape Cod Hospital on April 20, 2018.
Ed is the son of the late Alice and Jeff Sullivan and brother of the late Gerald Sullivan.
Ed is survived by his loving wife Beverly Constantino; His son Stephen and fiancé Lisa Fleming; His daughter Kelley and husband Ralph Ward; His Grandchildren: Darryl, Vanessa, Patrick, Ashley, Emily & Maggie; His Great Grandchildren: Rowan & Oliver; His brother Jimmy and his wife Jane; His brother Billy and his wife Polly; His sister-in-law Priscilla; His in-laws Kathy & Cal McDonough; Other loved family members: Ellen, Ian, Leo, Nadine, Pam and many nieces and nephews. Ed grew up in East Weymouth, he attended Immaculate Conception & graduated from Weymouth Highschool. Ed was drafted into the United States Army & served in the Korean War. He worked at Brady Enterprises where he retired as Vice President. Ed Sullivan was the type of man you’d love to cross paths with in life. He had enormous wit, a mind for numbers, and a heart that held room for many. Over 61 years ago he married the girl of his dreams and his devotion to her could move mountains. He took the role of fatherhood seriously and aced it, not only because Ed worked diligently at everything he undertook, but he was also a kid at heart. His zest for life brought joy to others. His compassion was available to all and helping his fellow man was part of his credo. More than just friends, all his loved ones became part of his family. His work ethic was flawless, and his drive was insurmountable. These examples would serve as important tools for his children, his grands, and no doubt his “little” greats will grow to know it as well, because Ed will live forever in each of them. He enjoyed reading and had a love for all things sports- that’s Boston of course.
Ed loved his golf and his beach time. The loss of Ed surely can’t be measured, and his impact on everyone he met, can’t be either. In Ed’s absence there is still so much to be done; kind words to be spoken & hands to be held out. There are stories to be told, jokes to be laughed at, tears to be dried and shoulders made available for leaning. There is still great love to be shared. Now that Ed is enjoying a rest he worked so hard his whole life to deserve, we gladly pick up his baton and honor him by continuing his works of love.
A Memorial Mass and burial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to your favorite charity.
