Walter Thomas Sullivan (Tommy) was born January 9, 1944. He went to his heavenly home on April 22, 2021. This old leatherneck fought the good fight. He never gave up, he never gave in. Tommy played baseball on the first little league team in Nashville. He played on several summer leagues, of Isaac Litton High School and MTSC. Tommy joined the Marine Corps. On graduation day at Parris Island, he was named Honor Man of his platoon. He was an air controller in the corps and was a Khe Shan during the Tet offensive in 1968. He was first, last and always a Marine. Tommy was blest to have so many dear friends and family share his last days. The laughter, smiles and love brought great comfort. Tommy loved God, Libby, his family, his church, his country, the Tennessee Vols and the USMC. No matter the pain, his four great grandsons always brought a smile to his face. Tommy was preceded in death by his parents Lois and Walter Sullivan. He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Libby, his son Todd (Sonya), his brother, Terry (Brenda), his Granddaughters, Brittany (Ken), and Blaire (Jerome), also his Great Grandsons, Brayden, Sawyer, Bryson and Grayson. He also leaves behind his best buddy (and four legged son) Unitas. A special thank you to Dr. Victor Gian and Dr. John Bell for taking such loving care of Tommy. Dr. Joshua McCollum has been a dear friend as well as a trusted physician. We will be forever grateful for his care, his love, and his prayers. Simper Fi, Tommy Sullivan, we love you.
