SULLIVAN (SULLIVAN) [Providence RI Journal, Saturday 29 Nov 2003] East Providence - Alice A. Sullivan's high school athletic career was nonexistent, since virtually no organized girls' sports existed in 1940s. But Mrs. Sullivan, 78, who died Thursday at home, helped level the playing field for young women by pioneering girls' athletic competition in Rhode Island. Mrs. Sullivan was a retired physical-education teacher and former vice principal of East Providence High School. She was the first director of girls sports for the Interscholastic League, a position she held for 24 years. She also served as the league's longtime assistant executive director, and was one of 11 people inducted into the league's inaugural Hall of Fame this spring. "To say Alice was a pioneer is true, but she goes beyond that," Dick Lynch, the league's executive director, told Journal sports writer John Gillooly. "She was a wonderful lady and very important to the history of the Rhode Island Interscholastic League." In a reflection the lowly status of girls' athletics in 1975, Mrs. Sullivan's appointment as director of the league's girls' sports program that year merited a one-sentence account on a back page of the sports section. But her retirement from that position 20 years later merited the front page. Mrs. Sullivan began advocating for girls in the 1950s, when she and some other physical-education teachers began organizing intramural basketball and volleyball "play days" for girls in Rhode Island. In the late 1960s, the all-boys Interscholastic League yielded to Mrs. Sullivan's pressure and let girls in, but insisted that they pay their own way. She set up a table and sold soda and candy to make up for scant gate receipts, and served as coach, supervisor, ticket taker and candy seller. In 1971, pushed by the threat of a lawsuit by a Cranston West sophomore who wanted to play golf, the Interscholastic League told Mrs. Sullivan that it would officially recognize girls' sports, and asked her to organize a state girls' golf tournament. Three girls turned out, "but it was the start of girls sports in Rhode Island," Mrs. Sullivan recounted. A year later, Title IX went into effect, but she had already laid the groundwork for equality in women's athletics. By the time she retired, there were 400 teams in 14 sports; girls' championship games were drawing thousands to the Providence Civic Center. She lived on Burton Avenue in Riverside. She was the wife of the late Edward J. Sullivan. Born in Fall River, a daughter of the late Patrick and Eleanor (Kyle) Sullivan, she had lived in Riverside since 1952. She retired as East Providence High School assistant principal in 1986. She was also the former assistant athletic director, girls' track coach and swimming teacher at the high school. Her numerous honors include: 1983, the Rhode Island Board of Women's Basketball Officials names its annual award for outstanding and dedicated service the Alice Sullivan Award; 1981, "Service to Women in Rhode Island," by the Permanent Advisory Commission on Women; 1967, National Jaycees Physical Fitness Leadership Award, the first woman ever selected. Among her dozens of professional activities: the Rhode Island Retired Teachers Association; Rhode Island Retired Principals Association; Rhode Island Retired Secondary School Principals Association, former president; New England Council Athletic Association, former vice president and treasurer; New England Council for Interscholastic Athletics; Greater Providence Red Cross board of directors; Rhode Island Association for Health, Physicial Education and Recreation, ppresident, vice president, treasurer, board of directors; American Association for Health, Physical Edcuation and Recreation, Life Fellow membership. Mrs. Sullivan received a bachelor's degree in education from Bridgewater State College in 1946, and a master's degree in education from Boston University in 1965. She was a communicant of St. Brendan Church, and a member of the Riverside Circle of the Daughters of Isabella. She leaves a son, Joseph P. Sullivan of Haymarket, Va.; a brother, Henry Sullivan of Boston; two sisters, Louise Schepis of Attleboro and Mary Monkouski of Riverside; and a grandson. The funeral will be held Monday at 8:45 a.m. from W. Raymond Watson Funeral Home, 350 Willett Ave., Riverside, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 in St. Brendan Church, Turner Avenue, Riverside.

Taken too soon yes, but her life was complete, for she found and shared true love with her soul mate, Alan. Her newest and greatest pleasure was sitting next to the babbling brook that runs through the rear of the yard at their home in Thornton N.H. enjoying the peace, tranquility and music of the tumbling water. Not forgotten, for how could we forget her beauty and tenderness. Laugh and cry we will when we think and speak of precious moments we had with her. "There is no greater gift than tenderness bestowed from a loving heart". Mary’s heart will live on in us forever.

He was a member of the United Congregational Church, where he and Michelle were married. Paul met Michelle playing hockey at St. George's ice rink. He was a dedicated husband, father, friend, and coach. Paul spent much of his free time coaching. He dedicated his time to Newport County Youth Hockey, Island Youth Lacrosse, and Middletown Pop Warner Football. He motivated children with his enthusiasm and love for the game. The families and their children have been touched by his commitment and dedication. Despite his diagnosis with cancer, he continued to coach, and then later could be found in the stands cheering these children on. Helping each child to reach their full athletic potential and confidence to succeed was always Paul’s main goal. In November of 2006 he received the Heart and Soul Award for coaching from US Lacrosse.

He was always willing to lend a hand to friends and family, whether it was to finish a deck, renovate a kitchen, or plow a driveway during a snowstorm. In a recent school assignment Paul was interviewed by his son, Addison, and when asked what his most important accomplishments were, his answer was, "being a good father and role model."

SULLIVAN [Newport RI Daily News, On-Line Obituaries, April 2008] North Kingstown - James Patrick Sullivan, age 85, of Davisville Road passed away at home on Friday, April 4, 2008. He formerly resided at 1 Tarleton Road Wakefield, and 670 Thames Street, Newport, RI. Born on November 26, 1922 to the late Henry (“Soupy”) F. Sullivan and Margarethe C. (Hedenskog) Sullivan at 19 Stockholm Street, Newport, he graduated from Rogers High School in 1940 and joined the US Navy on July 2, 1941. Boot Camp was here in Newport and Jim would later joke that when recruits were given passes for trips home, his CO would yell “Smith, you have a train ticket home”, “Jones, you have a bus ticket home” and “Sullivan, you're walking home”. He was trained and served as an Aviation Machinist Mate in Pensacola, FL, Patrol Boat Mariner School, Astoria, Oregon, Alameda, CA, Oahu, HI and numerous Naval Air Stations. He was the Aviation Machinist Mate on Admiral Royal E. Ingersoll's Grumman “Goose”, the Flag Plane of the Atlantic Fleet. He also oversaw the mechanical inspection of a captured German Messerschmitt ME-109, participated in several Air-Sea rescue missions as a spotter looking for downed aircraft in the Atlantic and had also served aboard the USS Constitution and the USS Vixen. Jim was awarded the WWII Victory Medal, Good Conduct Medal, American Area Campaign Ribbon, American Defense Service Medal and the Asiatic Pacific Campaign Ribbon. He was also on the Naval Air Station Brooklyn boxing team having won several bouts and was trained by former heavyweight champion Commander James J. “Gene” Tunney. During his free time in the Navy, a young entrepreneur named Kirk Kerkorkian noticed his vast knowledge of aircraft mechanics. Jim rebuilt the engine to one of his Kerkorkian's aircraft, which Kerkorkian used to start his air transport business. This was the beginning of Kerkorkian's road to becoming one of the richest men in the world. In later years Kerkorkian even offered Jim a job. On August 31, 1949, while stationed at the Quonset Air Station, Jim took a ride on his new 1949 Harley Davidson down Bath Road (Memorial Boulevard) with his older brother Joe on the back. The motorcycle struck a tow truck that was near the beach parking lot and the brothers were thrown 37 feet. Brother Joe had his leg amputated a few days after the accident. Jim's right leg crushed, his shoulder fractured, and several other injuries caused him to spend 2 years in the Newport Naval Hospital. He was discharged from the US Navy in August 1951 because of the injuries. Several operations during the following years ultimately led to the above-the-knee amputation of his right leg. However he would never let the loss of his leg get in his way. In fact many people who knew him would not realize that he had an artificial leg, albeit he just walked with a slight limp. He spoke with adults and children in hospitals who had recently lost their legs and his words of encouragement comforted many. To Jim having one leg was not “a big deal” and he would always say when asked, “There's plenty people worse off than me.” He worked his way from Janitor to Postal Clerk Supervisor at the Newport Post Office from 1955-1968 and worked at the Newport Navy Exchange as Door Security from 1970-1974. In 1980 he bought a 1965 Cushman Silver Eagle “basket-case” and rebuilt it and attached a sidecar, along with several custom parts he machined and designed himself. The sidecar was required for balance because of the loss of his leg. Driving the sidecar rig is probably how most people in Newport and Wakefield know Jim. Good weather or bad, day or night he could be seen cruising around with a cigarette dangling from his lip and giving rides to many who asked. He drove the “Silver Eagle” for over 2 decades replacing or rebuilding engines, transmissions etc. to keep the scooter going. Although his will and desire for making the repairs to it would never fade, alas his body was telling him something else. He finally sold it in 2000 after having driven it for tens of thousands of miles. His son has also become an avid side carist and was given Jim's membership #178 in the United Sidecar Association, which now has well over a thousand members. Among his passions besides sidecars were WWII Aircraft, working on anything mechanically intricate in his workshop, collecting Zippo lighters, and working on bicycles. Jim's specialty was lacing bicycle wheels. He even made an elliptical wheel bicycle. The hub of the wheel was offset which created an up and down motion as you would ride it. For this he had to cut and thread the spokes by hand. After it appeared in a few local parades the bicycle was eventually sold to a circus. For years he carried a spoke wrench in his pocket and if he noticed someone's bicycle wheel a bit wobbly, he'd tighten the spokes and straightened the wheel and the bicyclist was on his way. Jim was particularly proud of his Norwegian descent, his mother Margrethe was raised in Voss, Norway and his maternal grandfather Odin Napoleon Hedenskog was the tailor for King Haakon of Norway. In April 1993 Kjeld Vibe, Ambassador of Norway, gave Jim a presentation. He was a member of the PBM Mariner Association, Vintage Motorbike Club, Cushman Club of America, United Sidecar Association, and the ZIPPO Collectors Club. He was also a life member of the Disabled American Veterans. He is survived by his sons Steven D. Sullivan of North Kingstown, Brady M. Sullivan and Alan F. Sullivan both of Newport, daughters Deborah L. Debrango and her husband Joseph of Chesapeake, VA, and Lisa E. O'Reilly and her husband Sean of Chesapeake, VA, and grandchildren Pamela J. Sullivan, Ashley Marie Casper, Ryan L. Debrango, Sean A. Sullivan, Matthew A. Debrango, and Kellie N. O'Reilly, as well as several nieces and nephews. Sister Anna Marie Ross of Chula Vista, CA. Brother Col. Robert D. “Dago” Sullivan, USA (ret.) of Middletown, RI. Bother Col. Henry Francis “HiYi” Sullivan, Jr., USAF (ret.) of San Antonio, TX. He was pre-deceased by brother Joseph H. Sullivan, sisters Margarethe “Rita” Prisbylla, and Marie Sullivan. Additionally he was predeceased by his faithful German shepherd, “Lady” 1974-1992. He was formerly married to Helen Teresa Conheeny-Sullivan for 21 years. O'Neill-Hayes performed private memorial services and on April 8, 2008 Jim's body was cremated while the traditional Viking funeral prayer was being read to him. His ashes will be dispersed in the manner of his Viking forefathers. Donations, in his memory, may be made to the Robert Potter League for Animals, P.O. Box 412, Newport, RI 02840. Special thanks to Home and Hospice Care of RI. Lo, there do I see my father. - Lo, there do I see my mother. - Lo, there do I see my sisters and my brothers. -I see the line of my people - back to the beginning. - They do call to me to take my place. - In the halls of Valhalla, Where the brave may live forever. 

SULLIVAN [Providence RI Journal, Wednesday 2 April 2008] Patrick Hugh Sullivan, long-time resident of Scituate, passed away of heart failure on December 13 at his home in Alajuela, Costa Rica at the age of 60. His survivors include four siblings, Charles, Dennis, Kathleen, and Brian; two children, Cody and April; and one grandson, Rayson. We, friends and family, knew Pat for his charm, wit, rowdiness, generosity, and utterly unique sense of humor. Besides being a Vietnam vet, package handler, bartender, and history teacher, he was a prolific writer, producing eleven books known together as the Tails Series and broadly defined as a blend of observational humor and poetry. He never published or sold them, but simply gave them to friends on holidays. To sum up Pat is an impossible feat, but the following anthem, his own, fits the bill: Fighter. Writer. Dance All Niter! Drinker. Thinker. Time in Clinker! Grunt Marine. Dug that Scene! Father. Lover. Redneck Brother! Dad, friend, you departed us quickly, but what a visit. We will celebrate his life at the RI Veterans Memorial Cemetery on Saturday, April 5th, at 11 AM. Please make all donations out to the Charles Sullivan Fund, which he contributed to annually: Charles Sullivan Fund for the Arts and Humanities, CCRI Flanagan Campus, 1762 Louisquisset Pike, Lincoln, Rhode Island 02865-4585.

She moved in 1968, after getting married, to Westport, where her daughter was born and where she started Suntree Pottery. She exhibited her pottery in juried craft fairs and sold it in art museum catalogs. She saved a house built in 1680 from being razed and reconstructed it with great care and authenticity. After more than 20 years as a potter, Mrs. Szal became an analyst. She obtained her master of arts degree in counseling psychology from the Pacifica Graduate Institute, California. She received her diploma in analytical psychology from the C.J. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland. As a Jungian analyst, she saw clients in her Westport home and Providence office. She was a founder of the Women's Well, a center in Concord for the healing and empowerment of women. Through her work and teaching in psychology she touched many lives. She was a quiet and attentive friend. Her kitchen was open to everyone. She held an annual Easter egg hunt in the woods behind her house and hand-painted an egg for each child with scenes from their favorite stories or personal interests. In the past three months, she helped form the Westport Point Neighborhood Association. She was a member of the Association of Graduate Analytical Psychologists and the Westport River Watershed Alliance. Survivors include a daughter, Amma Szal of Providence; a brother, Michael McFarland of Whittman, Ariz.; a sister, Karen Stump of Gary, Ind.; her former husband, Roger Szal; and friends throughout the world. A celebration of her life will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 26, at her home, 1720 Main Road, Westport. Burial is private. Arrangements are by the Waring-Sullivan Home of Memorial Tribute.
