James Sullivan - Greenwood

Dr. James “Jim” Peter Sullivan, 88, Resident of Marshall Rd., died Saturday, February 10, 2018 at Wesley Commons Healthcare Center.

Jim was born in the backyard in Lakeview, New York, on June 4, 1929, to Daniel and Grace Sullivan. He is predeceased by his parents and all of his siblings, Ronnie, Grace, John, Marge, Dan, Alphonsus, and Mary.

Jim attended college at St. Mary’s Seminary, received his master’s degree at Hofstra College, and earned his PhD in English education at NYU. He taught high school English and then moved into administration, retiring as superintendent of the North Babylon Union Free School District in 1982. After his retirement from the school district, he taught writing and school administration at community colleges and universities on Long Island and in Florida.

Jim married Dorothy Caldeira in 1960; they had two daughters, Dr. Carolyn Sullivan Burklow (Tom) and Dr. Theresa Sullivan Bishop (Allen). Jim and Dorothy had forty-five happy years of marriage until her death in 2005.

Jim moved to South Carolina in 2006. He married Elisa Moran in 2007.

A lover of life and family, Jim derived many laughs from Tom’s wit, much pleasure from Allen’s kitchen, and much pride and joy from his five grandchildren.
