Mike Sullivan

April 15, 1941 ~ April 25, 2019 (age 78)

Michael Riley Sullivan, 78, of Lancaster, passed away after a brief but intense battle with cancer on April 25, 2019. He was born in Oshkosh, WI to the late George and Lillian Sullivan on April 15, 1941.

Mike was a proud father of four, and an honorable veteran of the Vietnam War. He will be fondly remembered for his jolly nature, easy laugh, and wry sense of humor. Mike loved his Irish Wolfhounds and was incredibly handy. He enjoyed working with wood, and building toolsheds, toy boxes and many other things, most of them bigger than they needed to be. He was also an avid gardener, golfer, and proud holder of three hole-in-one trophies.

Mike is survived by his wife of 52 years, Susan Sullivan; daughters, Kelly (John) Danks, Shannon (Rob) Treynor, and Kerry (Rob) Beckwith; son, Sean (Megan) Sullivan; grandchildren, Ellen, Jack, Lily, Hobbes, Maureen, Ben, Michael, Danny, Evelyn, and Saoirse; cousin, Sandra Lautenschlager of Boynton Beach, FL; and beloved pet dog, Conan.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Patrick Sullivan.
