Larry Edward Sullivan, 74, Sheridan, passed away Tuesday evening, Oct. 27, 2020 at Maple Park Village in Westfield
Born Oct. 16, 1947 in Kokomo, he was the son of the late Herman C. and Martha I. Sullivan (Fulton) Mullin.
Mr. Sullivan spent the majority of his working career as a projectionist for various movie theaters. His love of tinkering, combined with 25 years of experience in the industry, gave him the ability to fix just about any problem that would arise with the equipment. The fuel that kept him going all those years was his coffee. Whether the temperature outside was 105 degrees or 10 below, it didn’t matter; there was always a cup within reach.
After the passing of his stepfather, M. Sullivan devoted his time to taking care of his mother. He assisted with her daily routines and never missed a chance to help mom out in the garden. The old saying “you get what you give and reap what you sow” was never more accurately portrayed than in his life. The care and love that he put into the world was returned to him in a most unusual way -- through his pet cats. Whenever he would pass out, either from a hypoglycemic reaction or a spike in his blood sugar, his cats would be alert to the situation and find whatever way possible to wake him up.
Survivors include his step-sister, Janice (Larry) Brown of Frankton; nieces and nephews, Brittany Mullin, Morgan Mullin, Tony Fulton and Lisa (John) Keefe; and great nieces and nephews, Elizabeth Keefe, Rebecca Keefe and Samuel Keefe.
He was preceded in death by his parents; step-father Clayton Mullin; sister Gisele E. Mullin; and brother, Eric Mullin.
Services will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020 at Kercheval Funeral Home, 306 E. 10th St. in Sheridan. Family and friends may pay their respects from 2 p.m. until the time of service. Burial will follow at Mundy Cemetery in Sheridan. The Rev. James McBryant will be officiating.
