Stephen C.'s Story
Stephen C. “Sully” Sullivan, 51, a resident of Atkinson for the past 10 years, died suddenly on June 25, 2017, after a courageous battle with a long illness at Lawrence General Hospital, with his loving wife by his side.
Born in Winchester, Mass., son of the late Leonard and Barbara (Galli) Sullivan, he was raised in Woburn and was a member of the class of 1984 of Matignon High School, Cambridge, Mass.
A former resident of Plaistow and Danville, he was an award-winning pre-owned vehicle sales manager at local car dealerships.
A member of Saint Anne’s Parish of Hampstead and proud of his Irish heritage, Stephen was a “car guy” who enjoyed anything to do with automobiles. He was a fan of all Boston and New England sports teams, trips to the beach and the White Mountains. His favorite place on earth was Captiva Island, Fla., where he and his wife, Janice spent their honeymoon and where they frequently revisited over the years.
He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Janice M. (Lochiatto) Sullivan; a daughter, Cassandra M. Sullivan of Atkinson; a brother, Leonard R. Sullivan, Jr. of Massachusetts; his mother-in-law, Joan Lochiatto of Burlington, Mass.; a brother-in-law, David Lochiatto and his wife, Beth of Tewksbury, Mass.; three nieces, Elena and Rachel Lochiatto, and Colleen Sullivan; one aunt, Connie Sullivan of Hampstead; several cousins; and his canine sidekick, Jasper. He was predeceased by his brother, Mark D. Sullivan and his father-in-law, Robert Lochiatto.
