Obituary of John "Barry" SullivanSullivan, John “Barry”
Passed away surrounded by family at his home on April 23, 2020, at the age of 73. Remembered by his wife of 51 years, Denise, their children, John J.B. Sullivan Jr. (Dianna) and Brad (Eileen) and grandchildren Chantal and Alisha.

Reunited with his predeceased parents, 6 sisters, 4 brothers, and his dog, Bud.
Barry was born and raised in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Some of his favourite pastimes included cars and playing hockey, of which a few of his nephews followed in his footsteps. He frequently attended antique car shows and enjoyed rides in his Monte Carlo. Barry worked for Dana for 30 years and was a proud member of the Eganville Legion. After his retirement, Barry and Denise moved to Westmeath, on the Ottawa River, where he enjoyed spending time with his neighbours. He will be remembered for exclaiming “Thanks for coming” whenever it came time to leave and will be known as a happy go-lucky man that always loved to joke.
