In memory of Larry Sullivan

By OSullivan Family

Larry Sullivan was a husband, father, grandfather and active member of his community. In 2021 he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. On 29th October 2021 he died at home surrounded by his family. This has been a very difficult time for all of those who loved him.

It has been made a little more bearable by the fact that we were all with him when he died and that he had the comforts of home for the last months of his life. This was made possible because of the equipment and carers provided by the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA).

As a family we are asking people to donate to the IMNDA (anonymously if you wish). Motor Neurone Disease has no cure and the equipment to make those diagnosed with it more comfortable is expensive. Please consider donating whatever you can afford.

Thank you

Early Life

Saturday 13th Nov

Larry spent his life living in Bree, Co Wexford.

This is the earliest photo we have of him, taken about 1947/48. The house where he lived as a child is less than a mile from his last home.

Larry is the small boy on the right hand side.


Active Member of the Community

The Wexford Farmers Co-Op was founded in 1968. This is our father and some of his friends advertising tractors for sale.

To a husband, father and grandfather- we miss you in every way. You’ve given me so many traits that I see in me each day. A quiet but powerful presence may seem a contradiction- but not with you, we always knew and admired your jurisdiction. Good night daddy- thank you for being you xx

Acts of practical kindness and a quiet presence are sometimes the most comforting gifts and Larry gave both to so many so often.
