Sullivan, Richard

Sullivan, Richard J. (52)Richard Sullivan, 77, died on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2012. He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Barbara Ann Schiebel and children: Chad, Bart and Elan. Richard was predeceased by his youngest son, Marc, in 2005. He is also survived by Bart's wife, Jennifer Kelly Sullivan and their three children: Eamon, Grace and Sean and by Elan and Will Briggs' infant, Ambrose. Richard was the seventh born of eleven children of Thomas and Margaret Sullivan of Brooklyn, NY.

Upon graduation from St. John's University in 1956 he entered the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, a Missionary Congregation. Leaving the Oblates in 1968 he married Barbara Ann Schiebel, a former Sister of St. Joseph. She and the family she brought forth replaced the loneliness of the priesthood with the deepest love, friendship and happiness for which one could hope. In business, Richard enjoyed a career in Association Management in the food industry where he quickly came to respect the integrity of the companies in the food industry. Serving those companies was not work. It was pleasure. He retired as President of the Association of Food Industries, Inc in 2002 and embarked on a new career: teaching the Catholic religion to youngsters, visiting the sick and befriending those in prison.
