James Kevin Sullivan

It is with incredible sadness that the family of James Kevin Sullivan announces his death after a brief illness on Wednesday, November 29, at the age of 60 years in Paterson, NJ.  “Sully” will be dearly missed by his long-time companion, Marlene Nardone.  Sully will also be remembered by his children, James P. Sullivan (Nikki), Norean Bay (Katie) and Kathleen Mary Sullivan and their mother Eileen Sullivan and his grandchildren, Connor and Kathryn.  Sully is pre-deceased by his parents, Mabel and James Sullivan of Jersey City, NJ.
Sully was born in Jersey City at Christ Hospital.  He graduated from Hudson Catholic High School and St. Peter’s College.  He very proudly served the people of Jersey City as a policeman and sergeant over a thirty-year career.  He could vehemently argue the case for baseball, specifically the NY Mets, as being the only sport worth mentioning.  He was a man who loved his family, his country and his city and a man who was fiercely loyal to his friends. He was thoughtful and generous and was quick to offer help where he saw a need. 

A wake will take place from 3:00pm to 7:00 pm at McLaughlin Funeral Home, 625 Pavonia Avenue, Jersey City, NJ on Sunday, December 3.  The funeral mass will be celebrated on Monday, December 4,2017 at 11:00am at Saint Patrick Church, 492 Bramhall Avenue, Jersey City, NJ.  Burial will follow at Holy Name Cemetery, Jersey City.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Patrick Church, 492 Bramhall Avenue, Jersey City, NJ 07304.  Donations may also be made to Fisher House Foundation, Inc., 111 Rockville Pike #420, Rockville, MD 20850

We never met in person but had many, many phone conversations so I felt I knew you. You gave my beloved twin sister a lot of love and caring and happiness and for that I am eternally grateful. God must have wanted some tips on baseball. Rest in heavenly peace.

I will always cherish the fond memories of Sully and his family, and appreciate all the good times we've shared. I can still recall his Grandfather's brogue. Old friends are the best, especially the ones from Harmon St. My thoughts and prayers are with Sully's loved ones. Dave Spiewak
