DONALD 'RED' SULLIVAN

NEW YORK CITY – Donald “Red” Sullivan passed away on Feb. 12, 2013, following a short illness.

He was born in Salem, on Dec. 10, 1957.

Red was preceded in death by his father, Edward L. Sullivan and brother, Thomas E. Sullivan.

He will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 28 years, BJ; mother, Nancy Sullivan; mother-in-law, Betty; sister, Cindy (Billy) Woodman; and a nephew, Joshua.

Red attended the Boardman Methodist Church and graduated from Boardman High School while living in Ohio. He joined the Navy and during his 20 years of service, he was assigned to the USS Saratoga Aircraft Carrier as a 2nd Class Petty Officer and ran the ship’s store. Also, he worked on the USS Constellation and received high honors for his contributions.

While in the Navy, Red was an educator for the D.A.R.E. program, teaching young people the facts about resisting drugs.

After retiring from the Navy, he worked as a security guard for the New York Times. In addition, he worked security for the Carnegie Center and various theaters.

His hobbies were playing basketball, taking care of pets, and growing plants, fruits, vegetables, and herbs on his roof-top.

Red will always be remembered for his work in New York by the theater community.

In Boardman, there will be a private gathering of his immediate family and closest friends.

In lieu of flowers, send monetary contributions to your local cancer society.
